HBO President Shares ‘Big Little Lies’ Season 2 Update: ‘Reese and Nicole Can Be Very Persuasive’

HBO offered an update on the future of Big Little Lies.

Though there was no official announcement on a season two pick-up, HBO Programming President Casey Bloys revealed to a small group of reporters following the executive session Wednesday at the summer Television Critics Association press tour that discussions are still ongoing for the Emmy-nominated limited series to continue on.

“[Author] Liane [Moriarty] is taking her crack at it and I think that it’s interesting. I don’t think [there’s been] a time when we’ve gone to the writer of the novel, the source material, to come up with like, ‘Do you see ongoing stories?’” Bloys said. “I’ll be very curious to see what she comes up with that. Normally you go to a TV writer, and say, ‘What do you see?’”

When asked if HBO would consider continuing the Big Little Lies tale without the involvement of director Jean-Marc Vallee, Bloys addressed Vallee’s remarks that he was done with the series.

“I know he said that. But you know Reese [Witherspoon] and Nicole [Kidman],” Bloys said, alluding to their ability to persuade. “First, we have to see the material and if it’s worth everybody’s time. If it is, then the conversation of directors [will happen]. I understand why Jean-Marc feels [that way]. He did that. He’s doing another show for us, all eight episodes. But Nicole and Reese can be very persuasive.”

Bloys also addressed whether they would consider formulating a suitable story without Moriarty’s input.

Deadline hosted a ‘For Your Consideration’ panel and Q&A For Big Little Lies on Tuesday, in honour of its impressive 16 Emmy nominations. Reese, Nicole Kidman, Jean-Marc Vallee and Alexander Skarsgaard were in attendance and spoke about how they got the show into production and some of the issues raised within the show. Reese wore a monochrome dress by Oscar de la Renta with Stella Luna shoes. I love seeing the cast together again!

Reese Witherspoon, Olivia Culpo Go Barefoot at Sunset Hamptons Yacht Party
The intimate affair toasted the latest collection of L.A.-based label Haney on fashion site Forward.

Thick humidity enveloped the normally temperate Long Island coast Friday evening as friends of designer and entrepreneur Mary Alice Haney boarded a small shuttle boat in Amagansett, N.Y., for a sunset cocktail party toasting her eponymous brand.

The venue for the affair, which was held in collaboration with fashion retail site Forward by Elyse Walker, was the Emelina — a 167-foot custom-built yacht owned by the Tennessee native’s parents.

“We’re going on a yacht,” cooed actress Olivia Culpo. She was poured into a lipstick red jumpsuit from the L.A.-based brand, which launched in 2013 and is partly inspired by Haney’s career as a celebrity stylist working with Taylor Swift and others. Looking more appropriately dressed for Studio 54 than the high seas, Culpo and her group of picture-perfect girlfriends paraded down the lengthy dock of the Devon Yacht Club like it was a catwalk.

As the tender reached the Italian-built vessel, a crew member announced the boat’s no-shoes policy, much to the chagrin of the well-heeled passengers. “This is my first trip out to the Hamptons this year,” remarked Culpo, who next month begins filming an action film with Bruce Willis and will open a family-run restaurant in her native Rhode Island. “It’s called The Back Forty — I’m part owner, but I’ve dubbed myself social media manager for now.”

Haney, who lavished her welcoming southern hospitality to all on the deck, explained this event marked the end of a weeklong girls’ trip that cruised to Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard and finally The Hamptons. The accomplished group included Reese Witherspoon, La Ligne founder Meredith Melling and Sprinkles Cupcakes founder Candace Nelson. “I feel so lucky to have these women in my life who are friends, but also incredibly bad-ass boss ladies.”

Witherspoon, wearing a gem tone green Haney frock, lit up at the mention of her “Big Little Lies” Emmy nomination — the actress’ first. “I’ve never made a TV show before so it’s exciting. The rules [for TV] have changed because the audiences have changed — they watch more television than they do movies, but it’s all about finding your female audience.”

July 14, 2017   •  Category: "Big Little Lies", News & GossipComments Off on Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon & Alexander Skarsgard Talk ‘Big Little Lies’ Season 2 & Who Is Behind Those Binoculars

Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon & Alexander Skarsgard Talk ‘Big Little Lies’ Season 2 & Who Is Behind Those Binoculars

Much like we learned over the spring, season 2 of HBO’s Big Little Lies is still in the very early stages of development.

Reese Witherspoon told Deadline today, “We had initial conversations with (author) Liane Moriarty and she’s thinking about it, it’s up to her.”

“She is writing ideas and we’re hopeful,” said Nicole Kidman, “The characters are all so strong and to just leave them would be sad.”

Today, Big Little Lies, racked up 16 Emmy nominations including best limited series, Witherspoon and Kidman as lead limited series actress, Laura Dern and Shailene Woodley as best supporting actress limited series and Alexander Skarsgard as best supporting actor in the category.

Back in April, Moriarty told the Sydney Morning Herald that she was approached by the producers of the HBO series, and that she’d like write the next iteration of the show as a story, not as a novel.

Told in present and flashbacks, Big Little Lies, based off the 2014 New York Times bestseller, is about an elementary school-related murder that rocks a highly affluent enclave of Monterey, CA where the moms rule the community with a catty fist. At the center are three women: Madeline (Reese Witherspoon), a posh housewife who is cheating on her husband; Celeste, a lawyer who is being sexually abused by her husband (Nicole Kidman); and Jane (Shailene Woodley), a mysterious single mom who has just moved into town. The series’ focus on the underbelly of upper-middle-class suburbia has hit a number of viewers, especially women, on a gut level. Kidman, who was bestowed with her second Emmy nom today, said “Everywhere I go from London to Australia, everyone talks about its topics, and I’ve never had that type of response in my career.”

July 12, 2017   •  Category: "Big Little Lies"Comments Off on Adam Scott on working with Reese in “Big Little Lies”

Adam Scott spoke to Rogue magazine about working with Reese on Big Little Lies, and the project of hers that made him seek her out to work with:

Scott has very much been a prominent part of Hollywood’s comedy community, appearing in fan favorite shows like Children’s Hospital, Eastbound and Down, Burning Love and most recently The Good Place, also created by Mike Schur. Which makes his latest notable endeavor Big Little Lies an interesting pick. Scott gives a powerful performance in the critically-acclaimed show, but it’s a clear, dramatic distinction from the comedic work that has defined much of his career.

“I was looking to try something different, specifically finding something pushing a little away from the comedy realm and then this show popped up,” Scott explained. “I actually reached out to [Reese Witherspoon] after I saw Wild, because I found that movie so moving and so beautifully shot and edited and her performance was astounding. So it was kind of a wish list group of people and luckily I got the gig, so if that’s all that came from this, that’s more than enough, just the experience of doing it. I’m really happy that people liked it.”

One of the main subplots of Big Little Lies is Scott’s character Ed, trying to prove his masculinity and hold his own against his wife’s ex-husband. Which is a bit of an interesting position for Scott, since he has played the bullying, douche bro character very convincingly in movies like Step Brothers and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. He can play the abuser just as well as the abused, and watching him onscreen might conjure some unpleasant memories of your own high school bully from years passed.

June 24, 2017   •  Category: "Big Little Lies", Articles & Interviews, Awards & Nominations, Career, Hello Sunshine, News & Gossip, Pacific StandardComments Off on The THR 100: Hollywood Reporter’s Most Powerful People in Entertainment

The THR 100: Hollywood Reporter’s Most Powerful People in Entertainment

The second annual ranking brings new blood (Sony’s Tony Vinciquerra), stars who also produce (welcome, Reese!) and two Jenkinses (Barry and Patty), along with the movers and multihyphenates who make the town run and the stock prices soar.

Who in this town has actual power, anyway? In short, the people on this list do.

In compiling the THR 100, our second annual ranking of Hollywood’s most powerful people, we used one overarching criterion: the power of “yes.” THR 100 essentially is a greenlight list: who has the authority to take projects from a no to a yes or the talent and track record to make what he or she wants. There are objective factors, like the size of an executive’s empire (owning it helps, a la Shari Redstone), access to vast sums of money (both Megan Ellison and David Ellison) or the number of series a showrunner has on the air and their ratings (congrats, Ryan Murphy).

Then there’s the subjective element of heat around town: “juice,” for lack of a better word. The Murdoch family’s 21st Century Fox is far more profitable than Netflix, but Reed Hastings and Ted Sarandos rank higher because there’s no company more the subject of Hollywood fascination and envy these days than theirs. Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman probably will end up grossing less worldwide than F. Gary Gray’s The Fate of the Furious, but the fact that Jenkins broke ground for female directors lands her (and not him) on the list. And so on.

In dozens of off-the-record conversations with top players, our team got an honest assessment of the pecking order at TV networks and film studios, the influence of talent agencies and the true value of stars (hint: It helps a lot when you also produce). Then the internal debate began: We started with 2016’s list but weren’t beholden to it. Some have risen significantly (producer Jason Blum rockets from 98 to 40 thanks to the surprise hits Get Out and Split), some have dropped (STX’s Bob Simonds and Adam Fogelson had a rough year at the box office) and some have fallen off entirely (sorry, Ben Affleck). And while Hollywood’s upper echelon remains overwhelmingly white and male, it’s a small sign of increasing inclusiveness that the number of women on the list (24, up from 19) and people of color (17, up from 10) are on the rise.

So congrats to everyone on the THR 100. You have actual power in this town.

98/100 Reese Witherspoon
Actor/producer

The 41-year-old Oscar winner has emerged as one of the most formidable producers in film and television, snapping up new projects with a keen eye on adaptations and vehicles for other actresses. Her acting day job has yet to slow down, with upcoming roles in Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time and late-summer romantic comedy Home Again. She’ll also take the occasional gig from her own Hello Sunshine shingle — most notably HBO’s hit Big Little Lies.

BIG WIN Assembling an A-list cast, Nicole Kidman for one — in HBO’s Big Little Lies.

BIG BET Teasing the possibility of a second BLL season.

Best advice I’ve received about power I had the privilege of working with Oprah Winfrey on a movie for three months this year, and she taught me so much about business. She does not waste a minute of her time, and she does it all with grace and style and humor. She is hustle personified.

What I’ve learned about my job from my kids My kids help me understand emerging platforms and the opportunity there to reach a broader audience. It inspired me to expand my production company into digital and mobile content for women and create a dialogue on social media with my fans.

June 22, 2017   •  Category: "Big Little Lies", Articles & Interviews, Gallery Updates, Pacific StandardComments Off on Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern talk sex, ‘Lies’ and a second chapter for their HBO series

Q&A: Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern talk sex, ‘Lies’ and a second chapter for their HBO series

Many people thought they had “Big Little Lies” pegged after HBO aired the first episode of the limited series in February. Soapy whodunit. Bitchy behavior. Mommy wars. Privileged women. Impossibly gorgeous homes.

The series invited those judgments and then proceeded to methodically upend them, delivering a nuanced look at motherhood, domestic abuse and, yes, the ways that knee-jerk assumptions can be wrong, damaging and self-sabotaging. Ultimately, it’s about a group of women finding solace and strength in each other.

That dynamic played out among the cast, as we learn from a long conversation with “Big Little Lies” stars Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern. In the series, Witherspoon plays Madeline, the community’s queen bee, who clashes with Dern’s steely career mom, Renata. Kidman plays Celeste, envied, elegant, but hiding a secret life of violent abuse.

These actresses adore one another and, in between Dern and Witherspoon planning a vacation together and stories of Dern’s dad, Bruce, visiting the set (“It was a scene with a lot of profanity,” Dern remembers, laughing, “and I think he brought out the best in us”), they spoke about what made the series so special and why they’re eager to bring it back for a second season.

People take this show to heart. They want to talk about it. Has that led to some interesting public encounters?

Kidman: I was on a plane coming out here last night and I had a guy stand up and go, “ ‘Big Little Lies’! Yes!” And I’m kind of embarrassed because of my character. I’m not quite sure how to communicate with people. Am I communicating on behalf of Celeste and saying, “I know”? It’s weird. And then the people sitting behind me told me, “We just really want a Season 2. That’s all we want to say.”

Dern: I think we all want a Season 2!

Nicole and Reese, you’re producers. You can make it happen.
