While the Academy Award winner regularly shows up in films on the big screen, this is Streep's first foray into TV in quite some time. Back in 2012 and 2010, the actor appeared in Web Therapy, starring Lisa Kudrow. In 2003, Streep played the role of Ethel Rosenberg in the HBO miniseries, Angels in America.

HBO made the announcement in a tweet on Wednesday.
