HBO will hatch its Big Little Lies this February.

The network announced Monday that the limited drama starring Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, and more will debut Sunday, Feb. 19, 2017, at 9 p.m. ET. Jean-Marc Vallée (Wild) directed all seven episodes created and written by David E. Kelley (Ally McBeal, Goliath).

Based on Liane Moriarty’s bestselling book of the same name, this darkly comedic drama tells the tale of three mothers of first-graders whose seemingly perfect lives unravel to the point of murder. The show’s teaser last month showed glimpses of sex, police sirens flashing, the ocean, and a gunshot.

Big Little Lies also stars Alexander Skarsgard, Laura Dern, Adam Scott, Zoe Kravitz, James Tupper, and Jeffrey Nordling.
