Los Angeles: Oscar-winners Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon are set to star in 'Big Little Lies', a limited series, being written by Emmy-winner David E Kelley.
The project is based on the book of the same name by Australian author Liane Moriarty, reported Deadline.
It is described as a subversive comedy which tells the tale of three mothers of kindergartners whose apparently perfect lives unravel to the point of murder.
Witherspoon, 38, and her Pacific Standard, along with Kidman, 47, and her Blossom Films production banner optioned the film and TV rights to 'Big Little Lies' earlier this year for both of them to star and produce with Pacific Standard partner Bruna Papandrea and Blossom partner Per Saari.
The original idea was to turn the book into a feature, which subsequently evolved into a limited series adaptation.
Kidman was last seen on TV in telefilm 'Hemingway & Gellhorn' (2012) and Witherspoon last acted on small screen in television special 'Monsters vs Aliens: Mutant Pumpkins from Outer Space'.
