America’s sweetheart has finally decided to take a swing at the world’s sweetheart – TV.
Julia Roberts will star in a limited series based on Maria Semple’s New York Times best-selling Today Will Be Different, Variety reports.
“I’m giddy that Eleanor Flood will be brought to life by Julia Roberts and am elated to collaborate with Megan Ellison, Sue Naegle, and the team at Annapurna on this endeavour,” Semple said in a statement. “This will be a fun ride!”
No network has signed the new project as of yet, but producers are shopping it around. There will likely be no shortage of buyers with star power like A-lister Roberts playing the lead role in her first-ever TV series.
Roberts has played in smaller TV roles before she hit it big with major film roles including Pretty Woman and Erin Brokovich to name but a few.
We can’t wait to watch it!
