Streep to lend her voice to new Audible comedy program

Multiple sources are reporting this morning that Audible has reached a deal with Broadway Video to produce audio-only original comedy programming. Meryl has apparently signed on as guest (voice) actor for the first show, entitled Heads Will Roll. It's described in Variety as a “workplace comedy that takes place in a medieval castle.”  Meryl will portray an actress assisting a peasant rebellion against an evil queen, portrayed by Saturday Night Live's comedy queen Kate McKinnon.

Others attached to the same project include Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), Queer Eye's "Fab Five" and Bob the Drag Queen (Ru Paul's Drag Race). 

I'm a big fan of Audible and many of the other names mentioned above, and it's always exciting to see Meryl in a new project. Granted, I'd prefer one that's on screen, but I'll likely tune in to to listen to Heads Will Roll. The show is expected to run for ten episodes. No word on when it will be available for listening, but it's evidently already done filming and in the editing process. 


  1. Any info available on the Streep/Scorsese
    Project that may be in post production

    1. Unfortunately not. But as I think I said in my last post about it, I can't picture this as anything other than a non-narrative appearance in something like a career retrospective on Robert de Niro. I'd be thrilled if I were wrong, but I don't think I am.
