Anna Torv ("Fringe") and Jennifer Jason Leigh ("Dolores Claiborne") are set to play lovers in Ryan Murphy's HBO drama series pilot "Open".

The series is described as a multi-character exploration of the complex, ever-evolving landscape of sexuality, monogamy and intimacy in relationships.

Torv will play a yoga instructor named Windsor who is in a long-term relationship with an intensely committed actress named Holly (Leigh).

She soon feels an instant connection and engages in a tryst with Grace, a gynecologist married to a sports agent (Scott Speedman)

Wes Bentley also stars. Murphy and Lauren Gussis (Dexter) penned the pilot and will executive produce.
