And we hear from some of the celebrities they met along the way.

    Being in charge of a big-budget TV production means having to make decisions. It's a new kind of power for Micah and Eli, and one that's sometimes uncomfortable to exercise. The words they write have real-world, three-dimensional-- and sometimes winged-- consequences.
    This is the third part of a four-part mini-series on the making of the Homecoming TV show.

Great

Love it. Just hate the transition music. Totally kills the mood!

I want to love it

Poor choices were made when this was produced. You don’t need to have characters constantly talking over each other to create drama.

Just WOW

I am an avid audiobook listener but this is totally different. The dialogue and the actors were absolutely amazing! It just felt so real — haven’t experienced anything like it before. Bravo guys! You nailed it!
