HBO has scored really big before with female fronted shows like “Sex and the City” and “Girls” and now the cable giant is betting big again on girl power with star-studded new series, “Big Little Lies.”

The trailer just dropped for the darkly comic drama in which Oscar winners Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon star alongside Shailene Woodley as mothers whose perfect lives fall apart when they get mixed up with a murder.

Adding to the big names, the hotly anticipated seven-episode-series also stars Laura Dern and Zoë  Kravitz, is written by “Ally McBeal” creator David E Kelley and directed by Jean-Marc Vallee of “Dallas Buyers Club.”

It is adapted from a 2014 novel by Australian author Liane Moriarty about mothers whose seemingly perfect lives unravel. “Big Little Lies” was originally developed as a movie project until HBO showed interest in it becoming a series.

The show, which will debut in February, sees Woodley return to a motherhood role after first having made her name as a young mom in “Secret Life of an American Teenager.”

Kidman and Witherspoon, who both have their own production companies,  are co-producers as well as co-stars in the prestige new project.

  • Growth is very much about stretching out into new and risky opportunities…I agree that if you’re in a happy place, it will likely not last forever (most ‘good’ things don’t). If you’re a rock star you have options others don’t and if your skill is your creativity, then technology is your media and you’ll have no problems staying a rock star if you’re will to take some risks. In that sense, Morons is right on the mark.

  • There are people who require rationing. Some people refuse to work, or rather work very hard at being disabled and dependent. They will quickly exhaust all the available produce as they have little appreciation for production. What do you propose to do with such folks in a production society? Right now, I estimate half of the American population fits into this category.
