Oscar winners Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon could be coming to TV.

The actresses have signed on to star in a limited series based on the New York Times best-selling book Big Little Lies, with David E. Kelley (The Crazy Ones) attached to write and executive-produce, EW has confirmed.

From author Liane Moriarty, the subversive comedy tells the story of three mothers of kindergartners whose perfect lives begin to unravel to the point of murder.

Kidman and her production banner Blossom Films, as well as Witherspoon and her banner Pacific Standard, optioned the rights to the book in August for a potential feature film, but the project will now be shopped as a limited series to various cable networks and streaming services. Kelley, Witherspoon, Kidman and Moriarty will all executive-produce.
