Brace yourselves! The Discovery Channel is out to make jaws drop with their long-in-the-making film series “Curiosity,” designed to explore a range of envelope-pushing universal issues.
But it’s not just brainiacs doing all the talking. Hollywood types are lining up around the block to host the groundbreaking episodes. For example, actress Maggie Gyllenhaal is on deck to delve into the nature and function of the female orgasm.
“We wanted to make a film about female sexuality in particular, which has often been more debated than male sexuality, which is pretty straight forward. Maggie has been in edgy, independent movies specifically about sexuality, in ‘Secretary’ for example, but she’s also been in broad, big blockbusters like ‘Batman.’ Just when we were starting production on this film, she was finishing shooting a movie about the invention of the vibrator in the 19th century,” Simon Andreae, Senior Executive Producer of “Curiosity” and the West Coast Senior VP of Development and Production, told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column. “I asked if she would be interested in collaborating with us on a film that explores the nature of female sexuality and whether the female orgasm helps in conception, how it evolved, why it’s there, what it means, and so on, and she was immediately fascinated.”
