It’s no secret that the “limited series” (ie. a fancy new word for miniseries) is now one of the most popular trends in television. Telling a close-ended story over a short amount of episodes not only allows the material to remain creatively fresh and satisfying, but the relatively short time commitment allows for bigger actors to make the move to TV. True Detective did it, Fargo did it, and now a pair of high-profile actresses are taking the limited series dive. Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon are poised to lead a limited series adaptation of Liane Moriarty’s book Big Little Lies with veteran TV producer David E. Kelley set to pen the script. More after the jump.
