Amazon has released the official trailer featuring Academy Award winner Julia Roberts and Stephan James (Selma, Race, Shots Fired) in “Homecoming,” the upcoming 10-episode psychological thriller series directed by Emmy winner Sam Esmail (“Mr. Robot”) and written and created by Eli Horowitz and Micah Bloomberg.
Based on the popular podcast of the same name from Gimlet Media, Homecoming‘s supporting cast also includes Bobby Cannavale, Sissy Spacek, Shea Whigham, Dermot Mulroney, Jeremy Allen White and Alex Karpovsky.
Heidi Bergman (Roberts) is a caseworker at the Homecoming Transitional Support Center, a Geist Group facility helping soldiers transition back to civilian life. Walter Cruz (Stephan James) is one of these soldiers, eager to begin the next phase of his life. Overseeing Heidi and the facility is Colin Belfast (Bobby Cannavale), an ambitious company man whose manic demands point to questionable motives.
Four years later, Heidi has started a new life, living with her mother (Sissy Spacek) and working as a small-town waitress, when a Department of Defense auditor (Shea Whigham) comes to her with questions about why she left the Homecoming facility. Heidi begins to realize that there’s a whole other story behind the story she’s been telling herself.
The series is produced by Esmail through his production company Esmail Corp; as well as “Mr. Robot” executive producer Chad Hamilton of Anonymous Content; Horowitz and Bloomberg; and Chris Giliberti, Alex Blumberg, and Matt Lieber of Gimlet Media. Roberts will also serve as executive producer through her production company, Red Om Films. Universal Cable Productions will produce.
“Homecoming” will premiere on Amazon on Friday, Nov. 2.
