The said project is also a sort of homecoming for Roberts to the network after she starred from the previous movie "The Normal Heart." Moreover, she was also known for her iconic roles in other films like "Pretty Woman" and "Erin Brokovich."

To recall, Roberts had some small guest roles on TV before she became one of the most profitable movie stars of all time. Meanwhile, the series will center on the life of Eleanor Flood, who is very determined to be her best self. Different struggles in life will test her character. It will also feature how she will commit to being the best amidst all her trials. This heartfelt comedy series will take its turns when his son will be faking sick, and a memoir from a colleague will disrupt all her plans. Roberts will play Flood in the series.

Limited series

"Today will be Different," a novel based tv show by Maria Semple, is another phenomenal hit which lands on HBO.

Variety has learned that it will be a limited series. Apparently, this will be the first time for Robert to debut her acting skills on the small screen.

The Oscar-winner actress is said to follow the footsteps of other stars that also had created big names in the industry. To recall, Meryl Streep who starred in "The Nix," and Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore for "Amazon Mafia" were among the big stars who have taken significant TV roles recently.

Further, earlier this year, some stars also had their limited TV series on HBO. Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, and Shailene Woodley were among those who earned good reviews from their limited series in the network like "The Big Little Lies."

Landing her first role on TV has made Roberts excited. Most of the time, the phenomenal actress has just enjoyed her acting career in various movies like "Nothing Hill."
