Hulu orders 'Little Fires Everywhere' series starring Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington

Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington will star in Hulu's "Little Fires Everywhere".

The limited series based on the novel of the same name by Celeste Ng will star Witherspoon and Washington as two women in a small OH town who are brought together when their children become friends. Liz Tigelaar ("Life Unexpected", "Casual") will write and serve as showrunner and executive producer. She will executive produce alongside Witherspoon and Neustadter for Hello Sunshine, and Washington for Simpson Street, with Pilar Savone overseeing the project for their shingle.

The series follows a model family and their interactions with a mysterious mother and daughter who disrupt their lives. Witherspoon then brought the book to Washington, and together they approached Tigelaar to adapt it as a series.

The book also deals with the relation of art in a person's journey to finding the identity and the danger of conforming to rules. Ng will receive a producing credit. Author Ng will serve as a producer. "This is exactly the type of compelling and culturally relevant content that embodies our Hulu Originals brand", he said.

Witherspoon has made the transition from movie star to TV star look effortless. Witherspoon and Washington will both star and executive produce the series. The drama will wrap its seven-season run on April 19.

The company really broke out into original content a year ago with Elisabeth Moss' The Handmaid's Tale, which claimed the streaming industry's first-ever Best Drama Emmy. She was nominated for an Emmy as Olivia Pope. "As an actress, I am floored to have the opportunity to work alongside Reese Witherspoon..." she said. Bellamy Young and Scott Foley will both stay at ABC with leads in the pilots False Profits and Whiskey Cavalier, respectively; and Emmy victor Joe Morton will co-star in CBS' God Friended Me. She is repped by UTA and Ziffren Brittenham.

No word yet on when Little Fires Everywhere will officially begin production. This is another example of an exciting partnership for ABC Signature as we continue to build our production slate in the streaming space. The project was reportedly shopped to numerous different networks before cozying up with the streaming service, which houses series like the Emmy Award-winning The Handmaid's Tale, Marvel's Runaways, and Difficult People, among others.
