Julia Roberts On Her Series Debut In Amazon’s ‘Homecoming’: “A Great Mental Challenge Every Day” – TCA

Julia Roberts, apart from playing herself on Murphy Brown or doing guest shots on Law & Order and Miami Vice, had never acted in a TV series before taking the lead in Amazon’s forthcoming drama Homecoming.

During a TCA panel devoted to the show, a half-hour thriller based on a popular podcast of the same name that is directed by Mr. Robot‘s Sam Esmail, Roberts said the shoot unfolded like a typical film production. As she was making the series, she did not focus on the nature of the platform. “I didn’t think of it as small screen-big screen,” she said, joking, “My television is very big.”
