Charlotte Walsh Likes to Win - Limited Series Starring Julia Roberts in Development at Amazon

Julia Roberts (Homecoming) is in talks to star in Charlotte Walsh Likes to Win, a new limited series in development at Amazon, per Deadline.

The project is based on the bestselling novel by Jo Piazza and will be adapted for the small screen by Jon Robin Baitz (Brothers and Sisters creator, The Slap), a two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist playwright.

The limited drama is executive produced by Julia Roberts' Red Om Films alongside Lisa Gillan and Marisa Gill, ScratchPad's Baitz, Rebelle Media's Laura Lewis, wiip's Paul Lee and Mark Roybal and Amazon Studios.

The novel has a most timely premise in this mudslinging moment, focusing on a woman who wants it all — political power, a happy marriage, and happiness—then has to decide how much she is willing to sacrifice for all that. An idealistic Charlotte Walsh leaves her job as a high-powered Silicon Valley executive to move back with her husband and three daughters to her downtrodden Pennsylvania hometown so that she can run for Senate in a midterm election that will decide the balance of power in Congress. She is initially shocked at how nasty her opponent is willing to play in the campaign, and how harshly she is judged by the media. She also sees that the strain wears heavily on her family. When a secret is uncovered by the opposition that could jeopardize her candidacy and everything she holds dear, Charlotte is forced to measure that cost against her ambition to make a difference.
