Discussions went well for Olivia Munn and Alison Pill last month! The two actresses will be joining Aaron Sorkin and Scott Rudin’s drama pilot on HBO, confirms The Hollywood Reporter. The project is tentatively titled More as This Story Develops and revolves around Will (Jeff Daniels), the co-anchor of a cable news show, and his newly hired team who come on board when most of the old staff leaves with Will’s former co-host.

Munn will play Sloan, a sexy financial analyst with her own show on Will’s network. The character is described as part of the “new breed” of analysts.

Pill will play the role of Maggie, “one of Will’s loyal associate producers who is in a shaky relationship with another staffer on the show.”

Alan Poul (Six Feet Under) also has recently joined the HBO pilot as an executive producer. Additionally, he will direct episodes if the pilot goes to series.

There doesn’t seem to be much hype behind this project. What do you think about it; is there any interest out there?
