The first look at Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington in Little Fires Everywhere is here courtesy of Hulu.
The streaming service shared the image, which features Witherspoon and Washington as Elena Richardson and Mia Warren respectively.
The forthcoming screen adaptation of Celeste Ng’s best-selling novel of the same name 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.”
The cast also includes Rosemarie DeWitt (Linda McCullough), Joshua Jackson (Bill Richardson), Jade Pettyjohn (Lexie Richardson), Jordan Elsass (Trip Richardson), Gavin Lewis (Moody Richardson), Megan Stott (Izzy Richardson), and Lexi Underwood (Pearl Warren).
“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,” Witherspoon said when series was announced.
Washington added, “We are so proud to be part of this team to tell this extraordinary story inspired by Celeste Ng’s phenomenal novel, and we are thrilled to be embarking on this journey with Hulu. As an actress, I am floored to have the opportunity to work alongside Reese Witherspoon exploring the rich themes of this story playing these dynamic characters.”
The series is expected to debut in 2020.
