Rachel Bloom is heading to HBO Max.
The Emmy Award-winning creator/star of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend will join the cast of Julia for its second season. According to Variety, Bloom is set to appear as Elaine Levitch, "a dynamo who comes to WGBH by way of CBS to work with Julia on The French Chef."
Starring Sarah Lancashire, Bebe Neuwirth, and David Hyde Pierce and created by Daniel Goldfarb (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Julia is inspired by the life of culinary icon Julia Child. The series debuted in March 2022 and was renewed for a second season in May.
Bloom is next set to appear in Reboot, a Hulu comedy created by Steve Levitan.
