Bobby Cannavale will co-star opposite Julia Roberts and Stephan James in Homecoming, the half-hour drama from Universal Cable Productions, Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail and Anonymous Content. It has a two-season straight-to-series order at Amazon.
Homecoming, based on Gimlet Media’s breakout fictional podcast, is written by the podcast’s creators Eli Horowitz and Micah Bloomberg and directed by Esmail. It is a psychological thriller that centers on Heidi (Roberts), a caseworker at a secret government facility, and a soldier (James) eager to rejoin civilian life.
Cannavale plays Colin Belfast, the ambitious off-site supervisor of the Homecoming Initiative.
