Reese Witherspoon, Kerry Washington's 'Little Fires Everywhere' Lands Series Order at Hulu

Reese Witherspoon, Kerry Washington's 'Little Fires Everywhere' Lands Series Order at Hulu

Hulu nabs Celeste Ng's Little Fires Everywhere series adaptation, starring powerhouse Kerry Washington and Reese Witherspoon.

The series will center on the intertwined lives of the Richardson family, as well as a mother and daughter duo who upend their lives.

Witherspoon and Washington will exec produce and star while Liz Tigelaar (Life Unexpected) will serve as showrunner and exec producer.

Joel Stillerman, Chief Content Officer at Hulu, said that bringingLittle Fires Everywhere to its platform is appropriate because of its persuasive and culturally sensitive nature that is typical of Hulu's original contents. The project is from the latter's Hello Sunshine with ABC Signature Studios.

"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".

Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington's upcoming drama series, "Little Fires Everywhere", just found its home. Her first big TV project, HBO's Big Little Lies, was such a massive hit that HBO opted to order a second season of the show despite it being intended as a close-ended miniseries. Washington added that she was "floored to have the opportunity to work alongside Reese Witherspoon exploring the rich themes of this story playing these dynamic characters". Hello Sunshine, Witherspoon's production company, won the bidding rights for the book.

Adding that she embraced him like a son, Dutch beauty Yolanada said: 'He's a attractive human being from Bradford, England. Sources close to the couple assure that the break up was mutual and there is no hard feelings or resentment between them.

Witherspoon then brought the book to Washington and, together, they approached Tigelaar to adapt and showrun the limited series. Her studio Simpson Street is also involved with producing, giving her some real skin in the game. Witherspoon and Washington will both star and executive produce the series.

Little Fires Everywhere is about to set Hulu ablaze.

The company really broke out into original content a year ago with Elisabeth Moss' The Handmaid's Tale, which claimed the streaming industry's first-ever Best Drama Emmy. Bellamy Young and Scott Foley will both stay at ABC with leads in the pilots False Profits and Whiskey Cavalier, respectively; and Emmy victor Joe Morton will co-star in CBS' God Friended Me.

No word yet on when Little Fires Everywhere will officially begin production.

Little Fires Everywhere joins a roster of originals at Hulu that also includes the upcoming George Clooney-starring limited series Catch-22; Emmy victor The Handmaid's Tale; Castle Rock, The Looming Tower, The First and more.
