Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington will star in and executive produce the TV series Little Fires Everywhere, based on Celeste Ng's book. ABC Signature Studios is exec producing the potential series, the Hollywood Reporter wrote, adding that "multiple outlets are vying to land the limited series." A "parade of network execs took meetings at Witherspoon's Hello Sunshine offices" recently in a bid to land the series, and "sources note that several outlets attempted to take the package off the table, but Witherspoon and those involved insisted on letting everyone hear the pitch as they mull the right home for the project."
Liz Tigelaar (Casual, Life Unexpected) will write the script, exec produce and serve as showrunner. Washington and her Simpson Street head Pilar Savone will exec produce. Witherspoon will also exec produce via her Hello Sunshine production company head Lauren Neustadter. Ng will also serve as a producer. Little Fires Everywhere was a September pick of Witherspoon's book club.
