Big Little Lies, HBO’s 2017 high profile limited series, unveiled a teaser trailer over the weekend. Based on the Liane Moriarty novel, the series stars Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, and Shailene Woodley as three friends and mothers entangled in mystery. The series relocated the novel’s Australian setting to a sunny SoCal locale. The Temptation’s “Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone” is smartly used as background music.
It’s very likely that Emmy will stand at attention for the material given its envious pedigree. Jean-Marc Vallee (Wild, Dallas Buyer’s Club) directs with Laura Dern, Alexander Skarsgard, Adam Scott, and Zoe Kravitz all potentially in the running along with the three main stars.
No official release date has been scheduled aside from a 2017 birth.
