Amazon Thursday released the official trailer for its new drama series Homecoming, starring Julia Roberts.
Roberts portrays Heidi Bergman, a caseworker at a facility helping soldiers transition back to civilian life. Years later after leaving the job, a Department of Defense auditor comes to her with questions about why she left the facility. The visit forces Heidi to realize that there’s a whole other story behind the story she’s been telling herself, according to Amazon.
Bobby Cannavale, Stephan James and Sissy Spacek also star in the series, which is set to premiere on the Prime Video streaming service Nov. 2, said Amazon.
Based on the podcast of the same name, Homecoming was created by Eli Horowitz and Micah Bloomberg, and directed by Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail.
