The series featuring Reese Witherspoon will at last premiere on Amazon Prime for Irish viewers on May 22nd


TV featuring powerful, authentic and flawed women is, at last, something we’re seeing plenty of. Actress and producer extraordinaire Reese Witherspoon actively seeks out challenging source material she can adapt for the big and small screen – Big Little Lies being one recent example – and her latest is an adaptation of Celeste Ng’s brilliant Little Fires Everywhere.

It’s a story made for a series: beneath the surface of a quiet Ohio town lies a tragedy that will, in one way or another, befall the characters — the mystery lies in figuring out how they got there. Our story starts with a house fire, and key questions: Who set it, and why?

We know the house belongs to Elena and Bill Richardson, a wealthy white couple who seem to have picture-perfect success with their four teenage children, including girl-next-door Lexie and the troubled prankster Izzy, who is suspected of arson. Other residents have disappeared since the fire, including single mother Mia Warren who befriended the family, and secrets are everywhere.

The story ultimately explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, the ferocious pull of motherhood – and the danger in believing that following the rules can avert disaster.

This gripping whodunnit has since been aired in the US, and now following its release in Europe, an official trailer has been released. Witherspoon and actress Kerry Washington will star in the show, along with The Affair‘s Joshua Jackson.

Ahead of its premiere next week, the book is also highly recommended.

More gripping TV as we make our way through this pandemic – we’ll take it.
