Kerry Washington To Produce and Star In ‘Little Fires Everywhere’
Scandal is coming to an end but Kerry Washington’s work in Hollywood is far from over. She’s teamed up with Reese Witherspoon for a limited series based on a bestselling book, Celeste Ng’s Little Fires Everywhere.
The project will be produced by Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine, Washington’s Simpson Street and ABC Signature Studios. Both will star. The book takes place in Shaker Heights, Ohio where Ng grew up. The novel is about two families living in 1990s Shaker Heights who are brought together through their children.
Witherspoon was interested in producing and starring in a limited series adaptation of Little Fires Everywhere, and so was Washington. Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter will executive produce for Hello Sunshine, while Washington will executive produce for Simpson Street.
