You won’t have to go to the movies to experience Catherine Keener and Oscar Isaac’s next project. The two are headlining the psychological thriller podcast “Homecoming” along with David Schwimmer, Gimlet Media announced today. Also on the way are the true-crime series “Crimetown” and “Undone,” a narrative nonfiction podcast.
“Homecoming” tells of an experimental facility where a caseworker (Keener) and her supervisor (Schwimmer) oversee a soldier hoping to return to civilian life (Isaac). Gimlet describes it as being told through “an enigmatic collage of telephone calls, therapy sessions, and overheard conversations.”
Eli Horowitz (“The Silent History,” “The Pickle Index”) and Micah Bloomberg (“Creative Control”) wrote the script for the new series, and Mark Phillips of “Serial” handled the sound design. “Homecoming” premieres Wednesday, November 16 and will consist of six weekly installments.
