‘Homecoming’: Bobby Cannavale To Co-Star In Julia Roberts Amazon Series

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.

Presented in a collage of telephone calls, therapy sessions and overheard conversations, the Homecoming podcast had a cast led by Catherine Keener that also included Oscar Isaac, David Schwimmer, Amy Sedaris and David Cross. Keener voiced the caseworker, Isaac the soldier and Schwimmer the supervisor.

The Homecoming TV series is produced by Esmail through his production company Esmail Corp; as well as Mr. Robot executive producer Chad Hamilton of Anonymous Content; the podcast’s Horowitz and Bloomberg; Alicia Van Couvering; and Chris Giliberti, Alex Blumberg, and Matt Lieber of Gimlet Media. Roberts also will serve as executive producer through her production company RedOm; her partners Lisa Gillan and Marisa Gill will co-executive produce. Filming is slated to begin in Los Angeles in April 2018. Amazon Studios will have global rights to Homecoming, which will premiere globally exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.

Boardwalk Empire alum Cannavale is already in business with UCP via his role on the studio’s USA Network drama series Mr. Robot. He will next be seen in I, Tonya and Jumanji as well as Going Places, The Wasp and Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman. He’s repped by WME, Framework Entertainment and Schreck Rose Dapello & Adams.

Shooting in April probably means "Today Will Be Different" won't start until the end of next year. She could have two shows in contention, in two different categories (Homecoming for drama series and TWBD for miniseries) for Emmy in 2019.

How does Homecoming factor into your schedule in terms of what's next for Mr. Robot?

Going back to what I said earlier, I'm going to have to plead insanity again, because I honestly have no idea yet. (Laughs.) I just know that I'm probably going to be working every single day for the next year. I hope I can come out of it as a sane person at some point. It's a 2018 shoot, and we're in prep right now. Production begins early sometime early next year.
