Albert will appear in the upcoming HBO Max series Julia, about famed chef Julia Child.
Julia will debut on Thursday, March 31, 2022, with the first three episodes. The rest of the season will be released weekly, through May 5. Albert will appear in the fifth episode, airing Thursday, April 14, 2022.
The series is inspired by Julia Child’s extraordinary life and her long-running television series, The French Chef, which pioneered the modern cooking show. Through Julia’s life and her singular joie de vivre, the series explores a pivotal time in American history — the emergence of public television as a new social institution, feminism and the women’s movement, the nature of celebrity and America’s cultural evolution. At its heart, the series is a portrait of a loving marriage with a shifting power dynamic.
The eight-episode series stars British actress Sarah Lancaster as Julia Child. The series also stars David Hyde Pierce, Bebe Neuwirth, Brittany Bradford, Fran Kranz, and Fiona Glascott.
