Well, I know what I’ll be listening to on November 16. Oscar Isaac (the dashing Poe Dameron from A Force Awakens) will be starring in the scripted podcast, Homecoming. This podcast comes from Gimlet Media and will be six episodes. According to Variety, the series will be a “psychological thriller that takes place at an experimental facility.” Isaac will play a soldier who cannot seem to adjust to life outside of the military and is presumably a subject of an experiment.
The story will be told through phone calls and recorded therapy sessions as well as overheard conversations. Isaac will be joined by David Schwimmer, Amy Sedaris, Catherine Keener, and David Cross. Keener will be Isaac’s caseworker and Schwimmer will be the director of the facility. Sedaris and Cross’ roles are still unknown.
Homecoming launches on November 16 but if you can’t wait to hear the dulcet tones of Isaac you can sign up on the Gimlet Media page for a chance to hear the podcast prior to its debut. Can’t decide if you want to sign up or not? Here’s a preview scene that features an individual involved with the experiments as she is confronted by a stranger.
