Vince Vaughn produces S&M series for FX

Apparently emboldened by the explosive success of Fifty Shades of Grey, Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Picture Show Productions is working with FX to create a TV show called Whipped that tackles Fifty‘s themes of sadomasochism, reports Vulture. Inspired by Shawna Keeney’s memoir I Was a Teenage Dominatrix, the series will follow a Washington, D.C., college student who turns to S&M work to pay her way through school and finds herself entangled with high-powered politicians along the way. Vaughn and FX tapped Gina Fattore, former co-executive producer for Gilmore Girls and Californication, as showrunner.
