From Little Lies to Little Fires, Reese Witherspoon continues to tackle acclaimed books for the small screen.
As with hit HBO series Big Little Lies, the Oscar winner is back as executive producer and star of upcoming Hulu show Little Fires Everywhere, an 8-episode limited series adaptation of the 2017 bestseller by Celeste Ng. Witherspoon plays a wife and mother of a wealthy family whose lives take a turn when she befriends a homeless woman (Kerry Washington) and her daughter.
Plenty of drama on display in the promising trailer below. It looks like an engrossing show, with a great cast and a narrative that should make for a binge-worth watch. Fingers crossed for it.
Ng has adapted her book, writing the series with Liz Tigelaar (Bates Motel, Nashville, Revenge). Also starring Joshua Jackson, Lexi Underwood, Rosemarie DeWitt and Jordan Elsass, among others, Little Fires Everywhere will be premiering on Hulu on March 18.
Official synopsis for Little Fires Everywhere:
Based on Celeste Ng’s 2017 bestseller, Little Fires Everywhere follows the intertwined fates of the picture-perfect Richardson family and an enigmatic mother and daughter who upend their lives. The story explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, the ferocious pull of motherhood – and the danger in believing that following the rules can avert disaster.
