Big Little Lies (HBO) #6: “Reading a novel was like returning to a once-beloved holiday destination.”



;6


In the tranquil seaside town of Monterey, California, nothing is quite as it seems. Doting moms, successful husbands, adorable children, beautiful homes: What lies will be told to keep their perfect worlds from unraveling?

Told through the eyes of three mothers – Madeline, Celeste and Jane – Big Little Lies paints a picture of a town fueled by rumors and divided into the haves and have-nots, exposing the conflicts, secrets and betrayals that compromise relationships between husbands and wives, parents and children, and friends and neighbors.

Based on the New York Times number-one bestseller of the same name by Liane Moriarty, this seven-part limited series is a subversive, darkly comedic drama that weaves a tale of murder and mischief as it explores society’s myth of perfection and the contradictions that exist beneath our idealized façade of marriage, sex, parenting and friendship.

Directed by Jean-Marc Vallée (Dallas Buyers Club, for which he received an editing Oscar nomination; Wild; Demolition), Big Little Lies is written for television and created by David E. Kelley (seven-time Emmy winner for Picket Fences, LA Law, The Practice and Ally McBeal; Goliath).

The stellar cast includes Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern, Zoë Kravitz, Alexander Skarsgård, Adam Scott, James Tupper, Jeffrey Nordling, Santiago Cabrera, P.J. Byrne and Virginia Kull.

Executive produced by Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, David E. Kelley, Bruna Papandrea (Gone Girl; Wild; the Oscar nominee Milk), Per Saari (Rabbit Hole, The Family Fang, Monte Carlo), Jean-Marc Vallée, Nathan Ross (Dallas Buyers Club, Wild, Demolition) and Gregg Fienberg (four-time Emmy-nominee; HBO’s True Blood and Deadwood), and produced by Barbara A. Hall (Ray, Milk) and Liane Moriarty, Big Little Lies is a Pacific Standard/Blossom Films/David E. Kelley Productions production for HBO Films.

I like this news:

Quote:
The author of Big Little Lies also wrote season 2's story. Big Little Lies is based on a book of the same name by Liane Moriarty, and while Moriarty never published a sequel to the book, she wrote a new story that season 2 will be based on.

Thanks for the thread.

Thanks for that Millie. That is good news. I wonder if she would ever consider publishing the new story. I'm sure lots of people would read it even if it came out after season 2.

^ Did she ever consider doing a follow-up/sequel to the book prior to this show?

There is no sequel to the book at all.. I think that she didn't expect that happen since it was suppose to be limited season..

^^ I wonder if it will be released after the show airs, with extra story? So that season 2 won't have expectations or spoilers.

^ Possible (I mean look at GoT, we're way past the books and GRRM is still writing). But yeah I agree that they probably didn't anticipate the show to be that successful, thus the renewal.
