Set your recording devices ladies, because on February 19th HBO is releasing a 7 part series event called Big Little Lies that is going to knock your socks off. A group of us got a sneak peak at the upcoming series yesterday and all we have to say is this…
Big Little Lies, starring Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Alexander Skarsgård, Laura Dern, Adam Scott, Zoë Kravitz, James Tupper and Jeffrey Nordling exclusively on HBO. Jean-Marc Vallée directs all seven episodes written for television and created by David E. Kelley, based on the bestselling novel by Liane Moriarity.
If that mind-blowing list of talent didn’t just seal it for you here’s a description of the series.
“In the tranquil seaside town of Monterey, California, nothing is quite as it seems. Doting moms, successful husbands, adorable children, beautiful homes: What lies will be told to keep their perfect worlds from unraveling?
Told through the eyes of three mothers — Madeline, Celeste and Jane — BIG LITTLE LIES paints a picture of a town fueled by rumors and divided into the haves and have-nots, exposing the conflicts, secrets and betrayals that compromise relationships between husbands and wives, parents and children, and friends and neighbors.”
Still not convinced? Watch the trailer. And for Pete’s sake, take our word for it. You are going to want to watch every minute, alone, with no distractions and a glass of wine on a cozy couch. Settle in a get ready to be enrapt.
