HBO’s Big Little Lies Trailer: It’s the Prestige Mom Drama You’ve Been Oh-So-Desperately Waiting For

Take a long gulp of your white-wine spritzer while reclining in your beachside sequoia seating arrangement, because we're in for a bumpy, white-collar ride. The full trailer for HBO's upcoming drama Big Little Lies has debuted, which features an astoundingly A-list cast that includes Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern, Alexander Skarsgård, and Shailene Woodley. Based on Liane Moriarty's best-selling 2014 novel about "three mothers of kindergartners whose apparently perfect lives unravel to the point of murder," it's clear from the trailer that the limited series promises a whole lot of familial intrigue and passive-aggressive Monterey Bay mamas. (Yay!) Created by David E. Kelley and directed by Jean-Marc Vallée, Big Little Lies is scheduled to premiere in February.
