Julia Roberts is headed to television in the form of Amazon’s brand-new psychological thriller Homecoming, which has gone a appropriately twisty and baffling new trailer. The line is co-created by Mr. Robot’s Sam Esmail and is based on a podcast of the same reputation from Eli Horowitz and Micah Bloomberg, making this one of the latest streaming streak to have first be coming home with life in such a relatively recent format. In addition to serving as co-creator and executive creator, Esmail will steer all the chapters of the first season.
Along with Roberts, the serial boasts an affecting shed that includes Sissy Spacek, Dermot Mulroney, Bobby Cannavale, Frankie Shaw, Shae Whigham, Alex Karpovsky, and Marianne Jean-Baptiste. Roberts toy Heidi Bergman who formerly worked to help military servicemen and women acclimate back into culture after being distributed. As simple as that announces, there’s something nefarious gone on, which, in keeping with Esmail’s hit USA sequence, sounds geared towards originating the characters( and the public) question what’s real and what isn’t.
The trailer does a awesome place of showcasing Esmail’s guiding style, and generating foreboding presage through a series of creepily recited lines of talk and swirling personas of( of all things) staircases. Roberts appears well suited to the role, although there’s not a whole lot to go on aside from the fact that there is ponderous atmosphere and the resulting strain. Check out the trailer and a full synopsis below:
“Heidi Bergman( Roberts) is a caseworker at the Homecoming Transitional Support Center, a Geist Group facility curing soldiers change back to civilian life. Walter Cruz( Stephan James) is one of these soldiers, anxious to begin the next phase of their own lives. Administering Heidi and the facility is Colin Belfast( Bobby Cannavale ), an grandiose company man whose psychotic requires point to questionable incentives.
Four years later, Heidi has started a new life, living with her mother( Sissy Spacek) and driving 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 entire other fib behind the narration she’s been telling herself.”
Interestingly, Homecoming is a half-hour drama, a format that’s become increasingly popular with sees like Starz’ Sweetbitter and Vida, as well as FX’s upcoming Mr. Inbetween. Esmail was of the view that format would help fasten the gathering better, as Homecoming is apparently filled with several cliffhangers. With the premiere adjusted for early November, it will be interesting to see what Esmail and Roberts have cooked up, and if the series can live up to this tension-filled trailer.
Homecoming premieres Friday, November 2 on Amazon Prime Video.
