The official 'Little Fires Everywhere' handle on Instagram also shared some fun images from the reading of the show and we can see Witherspoon and Washington holding name cards as they posed for pictures. The limited series is based on Reese Witherspoon's book club pick from September 2017. Authored by Celeste Ng, it is a tale of buried secrets in the neighborhood coming to light after a single mother Mia Warren (Washington) and her daughter arrive in town.
Speaking about the project, Witherspoon said in an earlier statement, "At Hello Sunshine, we strive to shine a light on female-driven stories that are rooted in inspiration, emotion and truth – all of which form the bedrock of Celeste Ng's ingenious work."
About working with Hulu on this project, the actor-executive producer of the show also added, "Hulu has a rich history of transforming groundbreaking literature into groundbreaking television, and we are confident that their talented team will use this story to spur a long-overdue dialogue around race, class, and what it means to be a mother. With Kerry Washington, Liz Tigelaar (writer-executive producer) and now Hulu, Hello Sunshine has brought together a dream lineup of creative collaborators, and we are privileged and humbled to have the opportunity to work with them to bring this important project to life."
