Julia Roberts may be headed back to Amazon: The actress — who starred in the first season of the streamer’s Homecoming — is in talks to headline and executive-produce the Amazon limited series Charlotte Walsh Likes to Win, our sister site Deadline reports.
Based on the bestselling novel by Jo Piazza, the project focuses on a woman who leaves her job as a high-powered Silicon Valley exec and moves with her family to her downtrodden Pennsylvania hometown so that she can run for Senate in a midterm election that will decide the balance of power in Congress.
The adaptation hails from writer Jon Robin Baitz (The Slap, Brothers & Sisters).
