“HBO has landed a deal for the limited series ‘Big Little Lies,’ featuring the powerhouse trio of Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, and David E. Kelley,” reports Cynthia Littleton, Variety’s managing editor for television.
The story continues, “Witherspoon and Kidman will star and produce the darkly comic drama centering on three mothers of kindergartners whose apparently perfect lives unravel to the point of murder. Kelley is adapting the series from the 2014 novel by Liane Moriarty.
“Witherspoon and Kidman optioned the rights to “Big Little Lies” through their respective production banners — Pacific Standard Films and Blossom Films. CAA packaged the project with Kelley and shopped it to multiple premium TV buyers including Netflix. The number of episodes has yet to be determined.”
