The first look at Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington in Little Fires Everywhere was dropped Tuesday.
The image of Hulu’s forthcoming series was shared via Witherspoon’s Instagram. The snap of the two was captioned with, “Bringing it back to the ‘90s! Meet Mia Warren and Elena Richardson. So excited to be shooting @LittleFiresHulu with the incredibly talented @kerrywashington! 🔥🔥🔥.”
The series is based on Celeste Ng’s 2017 bestselling novel of the same name. The story follows the intertwined fates of the picture-perfect Richardson family and an enigmatic mother and daughter who upend their lives,” according to the logline. “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.”
Back when the series was ordered, Witherspoon said of the project, “At Hello Sunshine, we strive to shine a light on female-driven stories that are rooted in inspiration, emotion, and truth – all of which form the bedrock of Celeste Ng’s ingenious work.”
The cast also includes Rosemarie DeWitt and Joshua Jackson.
