Amazon must be a big fan of Julia Roberts. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the streaming platform has ordered two seasons of the Academy Award-winner’s upcoming TV show Homecoming.
Based on the Gimlet Media podcast, the thriller “centers on a caseworker at a secret government facility (played by Roberts) and a soldier eager to rejoin civilian life.” Mr. Robot‘s Sam Esmail will direct and executive produce the TV series adaptation.
Homecoming is Roberts’ second foray into scripted television after HBO’s upcoming mini-series Today Will Be Different.
What do you think? Have you heard the podcast Homecoming? Will you watch the Prime Video series?
I predict it will bomb.
