According to Deadline, Reese Witherspoon (Big Little Lies) and Kerry Washington (Scandal) are set to executive produce and star in a TV adaptation of Celese Ng’s bestselling book Little Fires Everywhere.
Published in 2017, Little Fires Everywhere follows two families living in 1990s Shaker Heights, Ohio who are brought together through their children. Liz Tigelaar (Casual) has penned the script, and the project is being produced through Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine and Washington’s Simpson Street banners, along with ABC Signature Studios.
