Hulu Orders Drama ‘Little Fires Everywhere’

Project Stars Stars Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington

Hulu has given a straight-to-series order to “Little Fires Everywhere,” a limited series from and starring Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington, based on Celeste Ng’s 2017 bestseller of the same name. “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.

Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine, Washington’s Simpson Street and ABC Signature Studios will produce the project. Liz Tigelaar (“Life Unexpected,” “Casual”) will write and serve as showrunner and executive producer.

“Little Fires Everywhere” will join a string of original series on Hulu, including “Catch-22,” a six-part limited series from director, executive producer and star, George Clooney based on the novel of the same name; “Castle Rock,” Hulu’s second project from J.J. Abrams and Stephen King that will premiere later this summer; returning “The Handmaid’s Tale;” and “The First” with Sean Penn in his first starring TV role.
