Sex! Murder! People that often appear on People! HBO knows a thing or two about scoring some intrigue for a new premium cable offering and the minute-long teaser for David E. Kelley‘s latest offering continues that tradition. Bring on the bonin’ and death parade!
Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Adam Scott, Zoe Kravitz, Nicole Kidman and Shailene Woodley are among the stars lending their talent to the upcoming 2017 small screen adaptation of Liane Moriarty’s book Big Little Lies. The limited series revolves around three moms of kindergartners who have their lives unravel with murder in the cards. It sounds like the sort of weighty ensemble thing that gets trotted out on the festival circuit, but thankfully this Jean-Marc Vallée directed affair is being billed as a dark comedy. Who doesn’t want Witherspoon and Woodley in a dark comedy offering? Monsters, that’s who.
There’s a healthy assortment of things to unpack with this early look-in, so there’s a strong possibility it might require a rewatch or two. Nothing wrong with that. We have the Big Little Lies teaser nestled above. Also, we hope you took the over on how many times Pretty Little Liars was accidentally typed because that owns a lot of “little lies” muscle memory real estate in our brain.
