Alex Karpovsky Joins Amazon Thriller as Series Regular
Girls alum Alex Karpovsky is set as a series regular opposite Julia Roberts, Bobby Cannavale and Stephan James in Homecoming, the half-hour drama from Universal Cable Productions, Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail and Anonymous Content, which has a two-season straight-to-series order at Amazon.
Based on Gimlet Media’s breakout fictional podcast, Homecoming is written by the podcast’s creators Eli Horowitz and Micah Bloomberg and directed by Esmail. It is a psychological thriller that centers on Heidi (Roberts), a caseworker at a secret government facility, and a soldier (James) eager to rejoin civilian life.
Karpovsky will play Craig, who works at the Homecoming facility and helps coach the clients through various real-life scenarios using improvisation as part of their rehabilitation into civilian life. He’s often frustrated when the clients don’t take the process seriously, but he’s excited to finally put his three years of improv training to use.
