HBO Sets “Lies” Date, Teases “Thrones”

HBO is doing a bit of house cleaning as we head toward’s years end with the announcement today that its upcoming limited series “Big Little Lies” will premiere on February 19th.

Based on Liane Moriarty’s bestselling book of the same name, this subversive, darkly comedic drama follows three mothers of first-graders whose seemingly perfect lives unravel to the point of murder.

Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Alexander Skarsgard, Laura Dern, Adam Scott, Zoe Kravitz, James Tupper and Jeffrey Nordling star in the seven-episode run which is directed by Jean-Marc Vallee from scripts by David E. Kelley.

HBO also teased the first shots from the seventh season of “Game of Thrones” during a trailer that premiered last night. Oddly said trailer has not gone online yet, but caps of it have and can be seen below.
