HBO has commissioned multiple scripts for “Today Will Be Different,” a limited series which will serve as Julia Roberts’ first series foray into television.
Annapurna Television is developing the high-profile adaptation of Maria Semple’s bestselling novel with Semple penning the scripts and Roberts producing and starring.
The actress plays Eleanor Flood who wakes up determined to be her best self, but then life happens. Taking place over a single day, it’s described as a rollicking portrait of one woman’s fumbling but valiant attempt to navigate modern life.
Semple, Megan Ellison and Sue Naegle will produce.
