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! We have HQ photos in our Gallery for you, and several videos from the panel and red carpet within this post:
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.”
As posted about at the time, Reese attended the D23 Expo (a Disney fan event) to promote the first trailer for A Wrinkle In Time yesterday. She was joined by her co-stars Mindy Kaling, Chris Pine, Oprah Winfrey, Storm Reid, and director Ava DuVernay for press interviews and an on-stage presentation of the trailer. Reese looked bright and fresh in a floral dress by Isabel Marant, with Christian Louboutin shoes and Jamie Wolf, EF Collection, and Graziela Gems jewellery. She said that she was very excited to be there!
Further down this post you can watch the video of the presentation plus some interviews on the red carpet, and in our Gallery are 80+ HQ photos from the event.
Reese attended the D23Expo in Anaheim, California earlier today, where the A Wrinkle In Time teaser trailer was premiered. Reese and her co-stars Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling and Chris Pine spoke to the press about the film; there aren’t many – if any – photos or coverage online yet that I can find, but Variety tweeted this video featuring Reese:
As expected, the very first teaser trailer for A Wrinkle In Time premiered at D23Expo (a Disney fan event) today! Reese plays Mrs Whatsit in this fantasy adventure film directed by Ava Duvernay, and co-stars Oprah Winfrey, Chris Pine and Mindy Kaling. A Wrinkle In Time is released next March 9th.
