Julia Roberts set to produce and star in a HBO series
Actor Julia Roberts is onboard to star in and produce HBO limited series, 'Today Will Be Different', based on Maria Semple's novel of the same name.
The project, currently in development, will be written by Semple herself (a former writer for TV shows like 'Arrested Development' and 'Mad About You'), reported
Entertainment Weekly. The development of 'Today Will Be Different' as a limited series is just the latest in a string of TV projects that have A-list movie stars attached.
The 2016 book follows Eleanor Flood (Roberts), who wakes up determined to be her best self, but then life happens. Taking place over a single day, it's a rollicking portrait of one woman's fumbling but valiant attempt to navigate the knotty perils and sly grace of modern life. This marks Roberts' first foray into television since appearing in the 2014 HBO film The Normal Heart, which garnered her an Emmy nod.
