HBO's new show Big Little Lies, featuring A-list actresses Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and Shailene Woodley, has wrapped filming. Witherspoon took to social media to share a picture from their last day of filming.
The Water For Elephants actress shared an image on Instagram with co-actors and wrote: "Wrapped#BigLittleLies with all these amazing people over the weekend! Can't wait for you all to see it! #LoveTheseGuys#Squad #WorkFamily"
Based on Liane Moriarty's 2014 novel of the same name, Big Little Lies is a darkly comic drama revolving around three mothers of first graders whose apparently perfect lives unravel to the point of murder. Witherspoon, Kidman and Dern play the three mothers.
The limited series is written by David E Kelley and directed by Jean-Marc Vallée. The show recently added Alexander Skarsgård and James Tupper to its star cast, featuring, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern, Adam Scott, Zoë Kravitz and Kathryn Newton. Witherspoon and Kidman will also serve as executive producers.
According to Variety, Kidman will play Celeste, who is envied by her peers as "she seems to have it all". Witherspoon will play Madeline, who is married to Ed (played by Scott) and is described as a "whirlwind of energy with good intentions and compulsion to set things right, which has unintended consequences".
Dern will portray Renata, whose character is described as a "powerful career woman and anti-bullying crusader who is at the center of schoolyard politics." Woodley will play Jane, a single mother of modest means with a mysterious past.
Skarsgård will play Kidman's husband, Perry, a successful businessman, loving father and devoted husband. Tupper is Witherspoon's ex-husband, who is now married to a young yoga instructor (Kravitz) and faces the challenges of co-parenting a teenage daughter (Newton) with his ex-wife.
The seven-episode show will premiere in early 2017.
