Kidman, Witherspoon Team On “Big Little Lies”

Film stars Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon are coming to the small screen with the pair set to star in the darkly comedic limited series “Big Little Lies”.

“Boston Legal” creator David E. Kelley is writing this adaptation of Australian author Liane Moriarty’s darkly comedic novel about three mothers of kindergarten children who become embroiled in a murder-mystery during a fundraiser.

Kidman and Witherspoon will produce the project which their respective production companies Blossom Films and Pacific Standard optioned earlier this year. Bruna Papandrea and Per Saari will also produce.

The project will soon go out to networks and streaming services with a major bidding war expected to take place.
