Mark Wahlberg, Steve Levinson developing the project

HBO is working on a hour-long drama series about the porn business that will use actors and adult performers.

The New York Post reported Thursday that "Entourage" and "Boardwalk Empire" executive producers Mark Wahlberg and Steve Levinson are working on the project with controversial writer James Frey who is penning the pilot.

"The plot will focus on a giant video company under siege from Internet competitors and a girl from the Midwest whose boyfriend convinces her to move to Los Angeles to become a star," the Post wrote.

"We're going to make a sprawling epic about the porn business in LA," Frey told the paper." We're going to tell the type of stories no one else has told before, and go places no one has gone before."
