Newswire: Oscar Isaac, Catherine Keener, and David Schwimmer are making a podcast
Podcasts aren’t exactly be a brand-new medium, but it does seem like a lot of people are paying attention to the weird world of internet-based, radio-like programming these days. In fact, even famous people are getting into the podcast game, with Gimlet Media announcing that Oscar Isaac, Catherine Keener, David Schwimmer, David Cross, and Amy Sedaris are all set to appear in a new audio drama podcast called Homecoming.
Billed as a psychological thriller, Homecoming is set in an experimental facility of some kind, with the iTunes description explaining that Keener will play “a caseworker,” Schwimmer will be her “ambitious supervisor,” and Isaac will be “a soldier eager to rejoin civilian life.” The story of Homecoming will be told through “telephone calls, therapy sessions, and overheard conversations.”
A preview episode is available now on iTunes, and its six-part debut season will launch on November 16.
