"What a journey this has been. I'm so grateful to have this opportunity to keep exploring these female characters and make this series with my friends," she added. "Big Little Lies", HBO's limited series, also stars Shailene Woodley and Zoë Kravitz. Based on the best-selling book of the same name by Liane Moriarty, it tells the story of three mothers whose lives unravel to the point of murder.

Kidman and Witherspoon are set to star and executive produce with most of the rest of the cast of the show. "I'm thrilled to be bringing back this talented team of artists," said Witherspoon. "It gives us the opportunity to delve deeper into the lives of these intriguing and intricate Monterey families and bring more of their stories back to the audience who embraced and championed them. I'm beyond excited to be working with talented and acclaimed director Andrea Arnold who will be at the helm. Andrea's unique storytelling style will be a welcome addition to the filmmaking team," she added.
