Hulu has announced that they’re ordered straight-to-series Nicole Kidman and Bruna Papandrea’s upcoming TV adaptation of “Big Little Lies” author Liane Moriarty’s best-selling book “Nine Perfect Strangers”.
David E. Kelley and “Edge of Tomorrow” writer John Henry Butterworth will serve as showrunners as well as co-write the series which Blossom Films and Made Up Stories will produce.
Set at a boutique health-and-wellness resort, nine stressed city dwellers try to get on a path to a better way of living. Kidman plays the resort’s director who is on a mission to reinvigorate their tired minds and bodies, but these nine strangers have no idea what is about to hit them.
The streamer has also announced it has renewed its comedies “PEN15” and “Ramy” which will get fourteen and ten new episodes respectively.
Adult comedians Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle lead the Lonely Island Group produced “PEN15” in which they play 13-year-old middle school outcasts in the year 2000, surrounded by actual 13-year-olds, where the best day of your life can turn into your worst with the stroke of a gel pen.
Ramy Youssef leads “Ramy” about a first generation Egyptian-American who is on a spiritual journey in his politically-divided New Jersey neighborhood.
