Amongst the new shows recently announced in the US is a new HBO drama starring Nicole Kidman and Reece Witherspoon, previously touted last November.
Big Little Lies is written by the prolific David E.Kelley, based on the book of the same name by Australian author Liane Moriarty. The project has a straight-to-series commitment from HBO.
It is described as a subversive comedy which tells the tale of three mothers of kindergartners whose apparently perfect lives unravel to the point of murder.
Witherspoon and Kidman will both star and produce with Bruna Papandrea, Per Saari and David E. Kelley Productions.
Moriarty, who previously penned best-sellers What Alice Forgot, Three Wishes, The Hypnotist’s Love Story and The Husband’s Secret, will also serve as a producer.
