If you loved Big Little Lies, then we highly recommend you watch this first look at Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington’s new series, Little Fires Everywhere.
Hulu just dropped the first official trailer for the upcoming TV show, which is based on Celeste Ng’s 2017 best-selling book of the same name.
The trailer opens on Elena Richardson (Witherspoon), who barely escaped a dangerous fire in her family’s home. Although the Richardson children believe the arsonist was their sister, Izzy, there’s far more to the story than meets the eye.
“Elena, someone burned down your house with you inside,” the police detective says in the clip. “Do you know anyone that would do this?”
In a flashback, we’re introduced to the chain of events that led to the blaze. It all starts when Elena rents the upstairs portion of her home to a seemingly nice woman, Mia (Washington), and her teenage daughter.
“One day you wake up, and your life is settled, and you know who you are,” Elena says in a voiceover. “Or at least you think you do.”
Elena soon learns that Mia is running from a dark past that is bound to catch up with her…and anyone’s she’s associated with. “Have you ever looked at yourself?” Mia asks. “Parts you’re afraid to look at?”
Big Little Lies meets Sharp Objects? Guess we’ll be tuning into the season premiere of Little Fires Everywhere on March 18 on Hulu.
