I’m currently in a series limbo. I’ve been struggling to find that next great story line, the kind that hooks you in for hours at a time and has you convincing yourself that “one more” won’t hurt even if you only get a few hours sleep before work the next day. I think I’ve found my next obsession though.
HBO has released the teaser trailer for their upcoming series, Big Little Lies, which stars Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley and Alexander Skarsgård, to name a few big wig names. The series is based on a book by Liane Moriarty and follows a group of moms in a seaside community whose perfect lives start to unravel. The trailer looks pretty dark but according to early reviews on the web it is classified as a comedy, so I expect some biting satire on its way.
Another point that excites me is the fact that the series was directed by Jean-Marc Vallée, the eye behind Dallas Buyers Club and Wild. From this alone I predict great things.
The series will consist of seven episodes and is set to release in 2017. Take a look at the teaser trailer below
