'Big Little Lies' Premieres Tonight on HBO - Full Cast List!

Tonight marks the premiere of HBO’s new limited drama series Big Little Lies.

Based on the New York Times bestseller of the same name by Liane Moriarty, the show takes place in the tranquil seaside town of Monterey, California, where 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 (Reese Witherspoon), Celeste (Nicole Kidman) and Jane (Shailene Woodley) – the show 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.

Big Little Lies premieres premieres TONIGHT, February 19 @ 9PM on HBO.

Reese Witherspoon Defends Hiring Male Director for 'Big Little Lies'

Reese Witherspoon and Big Little Lies director Jean-Marc Vallée cover the newest issue of Variety.

Here’s what the 40-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On why she chose Jean-Marc as the director: “I feel safe with Jean-Marc — more safe than I’ve ever felt with anybody, because he’s my brother,
he’s my partner; I know he’s always going to demand the best, but I’m always going
to bring my best,” she says. “We hold each other to those standards. We don’t have
any artifice between us.”

On the female-heavy script: “I thought that was a really unique opportunity to have so many incredible parts for women in one piece of material….“Any woman who’s trying to lift other women up and create more work for women is literally just looking for parity. We’re not looking to completely take over projects. It’s just nice to have 50-50. You need male energy and female energy on every project. You need different races on every project. The deep mission to understand each other is what creates great art.”

On film vs TV: “What is film? What is TV? What is digital? I think probably within four years we’re not going to be talking about that anymore. It’s just content. Content is content. Because as an artist, the most important thing is you want to have work that reaches people.
I don’t care how it gets to them. I don’t
care if it’s in their living room, their laptop, their mobile phone — I just want them to see it.”
