Julia Roberts strikes two-season Amazon TV deal with ‘Homecoming’

by John_A

Streaming services have been able to shell out the money to attract pretty high profile actors for their original TV shows, and Amazon Prime Video just may have nabbed the biggest one yet. Amazon has greenlighted two seasons of a series called Homecoming starring Julia Roberts.

The show is based on a podcast of the same name, which featured stars such as Catherine Keener, Oscar Isaac and David Schwimmer. The podcast’s second season premieres today. It’s a thriller set at a secret government facility. Roberts will play a caseworker at the organization; her interest in the role was first reported back in early June.

The half-hour drama will be written by the creator of Mr. Robot, Sam Esmail, who will also serve as executive producer. Bidding for the show was incredibly competitive, according to Deadline. Roberts will also serve as an executive producer on the series.
