HBO Lands 'Today Will Be Different' Limited Series Starring Julia Roberts

In a very competitive bidding situation, HBO has landed a limited series adaptation of Maria Semple's novel Today Will Be Different starring Oscar winner Julia Roberts (Erin Brockovich).

Today Will Be Different tells the story of Eleanor Flood (Roberts), who wakes up determined to be her best self - but then life happens. Taking place over a single day, it's a portrait of one woman's fumbling but valiant attempt to navigate the perils and grace of modern life.

Semple is writing the adaptation. She executive produces with Roberts, Megan Ellison and Sue Naegle. Annapurna Television and Red Om Films produce.

The limited series marks Julia Roberts' return to HBO after her Emmy-nominated role in the 2014 original film The Normal Heart.
