This is not a (fire) drill. Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington are teaming up to bring a book-club favorite to the small screen.

The Big Little Lies and Scandal actresses are set to star in the highly anticipated TV adaptation of Celeste Ng’s best-selling novel Little Fires Everywhere, and we’re burning with excitement. Witherspoon announced the exciting news on Twitter and shared a photo of herself, Washington and their copies.

The critically acclaimed story centers on the controversy that erupts in an affluent Ohio city when a single mother and her daughter move into town as a custody battle over a Chinese-American baby ensues.

Similar to Big Little Lies, the adaptation of Little Fires Everywhere is being touted as a limited series. Witherspoon bought the rights to her book-club pick and will executive produce the series along with Washington. Liz Tigelaar (Casual) is penning the script and will serve as showrunner.

We know what we’re reading this weekend.
