The first footage of the series adaptation of Little Fires Everywhere is finally here.
Hulu has finally unveiled the first full trailer for its adaption of Celeste Ng’s 2017 bestseller Friday.
The series was created by Liz Tigelaar and stars Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington. The duo is also executive producers on the show.
“We had been looking for a project to do with Kerry for a long time,” Witherspoon said at the Television Critics Association presentation on Friday. “When I read the book, it just had so many themes that were very complex and I knew whoever was going to be my partner… who was going to show up to do the work because it’s a lot of work. The first person who I thought was perfect was Kerry. She deepens the conversation and I knew I wanted to go on this journey with her. It just made sense that we were representing completely different kinds of women and different kinds of mothering but both with dignity and respect.”
“Adding the layer of race to that really enriches the storytelling,” Washington added. “The book also deals with race and does a great job of stepping away from the binary idea of race.”
Little Fires Everywhere debuts March 18 on Hulu.
