Oprah Winfrey's getting her kink on with a steamy new cable series about a sexually curious LA housewife.

TV's touchy-feely daytime queen will get down and dirty with the HBO series, which revolves around a married woman who suddenly leaves her husband and kids to act out her secret fantasies in LA's seamy underbelly, according to Variety.

The news comes just days after Winfrey announced she's leaving her top-rated "Oprah Winfrey Show" in 2011 after 25 years to focus on her new cable network -- and endeavors like this one, taking her far afield from her goody-goody daytime image.

The HBO series (no title yet) will be produced by Winfrey's Harpo Productions and is being written by Erin Cressida Wilson -- who penned the 2002 steamfest "Secretary," about an S&M relationship between a lawyer (James Spader) and his secretary (Maggie Gyllenhaal).

"It's a very erotic mystery about . . . a woman and her secret desires that are, in fact, rather pure," Wilson told The Post yesterday.

"She acts out in pretty extraordinary ways. It's all about an unfolding mystery."

Wilson said the lead character, Georgia, has "something boiling up in her" when she decides to chuck her suburban existence and embrace her funky new life.

"It just happens and she splits. It may be shocking to her, but the table has been set for a long time," said Wilson, who also wrote "Fur" (starring Nicole Kidman) and indie fave "Chloe" (Liam Neeson/Julianne Moore).

It would be a great HBO series with a different star in the lead.


I love some HBO series, because they can do things the networks can't. Big Love and True Blood are shows I watch regularly. I loved The Sopranos during it's run.

I dunno. It's about a parent who abandons her family in order to live out sexual fantasies. What would the series look like from the kid's point of view?

Friend: "What happened to your Mom?"

Kid: "She dumped us for some dude with a leash and a whip."

Friend: "Oh."

I agree.

Chicago should be happy that she is leaving.

"Secretary" was weird, but fairly good because Maggie Gyllenhaal looked pretty hot getting spanked.

The redeeming quality of "Secretary" was that the story revolved around two kind of damaged people who found each other, got married, and lived happily ever after with some occasional bruising. ;)
