Reese Witherspoon, Kerry Washington, and their production companies are working together in order to bring critically-acclaimed novel Little Fires Everywhere to life in the form of a limited series that they will both star in and help to produce.
Little Fires Everywhere was published last year and is set in Shaker Heights, Ohio where the book’s author Celeste Ng grew up. The best-seller centers around two families during the 1990s who end up irrevocably tied together through the actions of their children.
The show will be produced by Hello Sunshine (Witherspoon), Simpson Street (Washington) and by ABC Signature Studios and is currently in talks with various streaming as well as premium networks who are all reportedly very interested in the project. Ng is also currently set to act as a producer while Liz Tigelaar (Casual) is set to write it in addition to being an executive producer and the series’ showrunner.
