Comments Off on LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE: Hulu Orders the Reese Witherspoon-Kerry Washington Drama Straight to Series

LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE, an adaptation of Celeste Ng’s 2017 book by the same title, has been ordered straight to series at Hulu. The limited series will star Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington; LIFE UNEXPECTED’s Liz Tigelaar will showrun and executive producer. (Witherspoon and Washington will also produce LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE via their production companies Hello Sunshine and Simpson Street, respectively.)

“Celeste wove a beautiful, riveting story that spoke to all of us, and when we heard the vision Reese, Kerry and Liz have for the series, we knew immediately that we had to bring it to Hulu,” said Hulu Chief Content Officer Joel Stillerman in a statement. “We’re honored to bring this powerful story to the screen with Hello Sunshine, in their first studio project. This is exactly the type of compelling and culturally relevant content that embodies our Hulu Originals brand.”

“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,” says Witherspoon. “Hulu has a rich history of transforming groundbreaking literature into groundbreaking television, and we are confident that their talented team will use this story to spur a long-overdue dialogue around race, class, and what it means to be a mother. With Kerry Washington, Liz Tigelaar and now Hulu, Hello Sunshine has brought together a dream lineup of creative collaborators, and we are privileged and humbled to have the opportunity to work with them to bring this important project to life.”

“As producers, we at Simpson Street 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,” stated Washington. “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.”
