HBO snaps up Today Will Be Different starring Julia Roberts
Oscar-winner Julia Roberts is heading to HBO, with the cable network snapping up the rights to a limited series adaptation of Maria Semple’s book Today Will Be Different. Roberts will star, as well as executive producing alongside Megan Ellison and Sue Naegle of Annapurna Pictures.
Today Will Be Different sees Roberts as Eleanor Flood, a woman who wakes up determined to be her best self — but then life happens. Taking place over a single day, it is described as a portrait of one woman’s fumbling but valiant attempt to navigate the perils and grace of modern life.
