Sam Esmail, creator of the wildly popular Mr. Robot, has found a home for his next series. Esmail’s Julia Roberts fronted series Homecoming is heading to Amazon. The series is set for a two-season order, and is sure to be a big draw, considering the podcast is pretty well known. THR describes the plot as such:
Based on Gimlet Media’s fictional podcast of the same name, Homecoming — which on Wednesday launched its second season — is a psychological and political thriller that centers on a caseworker at a secret government facility (played by Roberts) and a soldier eager to rejoin civilian life. The podcast’s creators, Eli Horowitz and Micah Bloomberg, will write the adaptation and executive produce with Chad Hamilton of Anonymous Content, Alicia Van Couvering, and Chris Giliberti, Alex Blumberg and Matt Lieber of Gimlet Media.
Apparently, Roberts has another TV series waiting in the wings, so we may be seeing her quite often in the near future.
