Roberts & Amazon Re-Team For “Charlotte”

Roberts Amazon Re Team For Charlotte

Following their success together with the limited series “Homecoming,” actress Julia Roberts and Amazon are re-teaming for another limited series – this one based on Jo Piazza’s novel “Charlotte Walsh Likes to Win”.

Roberts is currently in talks to star in and executive produce the series about Walsh, a former Silicon Valley executive turned U.S. senatorial candidate in the most hotly-contested midterm race in America.

Walsh and her family returned to her downtrodden Pennsylvania hometown to run for office, but was unprepared for just how dirty her opponent, her peers, and the media were willing to get.

Jon Robin Baitz will pen the series adaptation and will executive produce alongside Roberts, Laura Lewis, Lisa Gillan, Marisa Gill, Paul Lee and Mark Roybal.
