Everyone went nuts over the Serial podcast phenomenon a while back, and now the time has finally come for the audible serialized storytelling game to ascend to the next level.
Indiewire reports that Oscar Isaac, Catherine Keener and David Schwimmer have all joined the cast of Homecoming, a psychological thriller told over the course of six weekly podcast episodes. Flavorwire, a whole different kind of wire, claims David Cross and Amy Sedaris have joined the cast as well.
The story involves an experimental facility hoping to help a returning soldier get back into the swing of civilian life. It will tell its story through a collection of “telephone calls, therapy sessions, and overheard conversations” with a script by Eli Horowitz and Micah Bloomberg.
Hopefully this leads to even more high profile radio dramas like this. With any luck, we’ll someday get one with a bunch of incomprehensible action movie icons. Or at least another go at The Shadow.
