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.
