Kristen Wiig to Star in Reese Witherspoon-Produced Comedy Series for Apple

Kristen Wiig is set to star in a comedy ordered to series at Apple that boasts Reese Witherspoon among its executive producers, Variety has confirmed.

The 10-episode, half-hour comedy is inspired by Curtis Sittenfeld’s upcoming short story collection “You Think It, I’ll Say It.” It marks Wiig’s first regular television role since she left “Saturday Night Live” in 2012. She will also serve as an executive producer on the show.

Colleen McGuinness created the series and will serve as showrunner and executive producer. Witherspoon will executive produce via her Hello Sunshine banner along with Lauren Neustadter and Wiig. Sittenfeld will serve as a consulting producer. This also marks Apple’s first half-hour scripted comedy order.

Wiig has embarked on a successful film career since leaving “SNL,” including starring in, co-producing, and co-writing the box office hit comedy “Bridesmaids,” for which she earned an Oscar nomination for best original screenplay. Her other recent film credits include “The Martian,” “Downsizing,” and “Ghostbusters.”

This marks the third project Witherspoon and Hello Sunshine have set up at Apple. She and Jennifer Aniston will also star in a currently untitled morning show drama for the streamer, and she will executive produce “Are You Sleeping,” co-produced by Chernin Entertainment with Octavia Spencer attached to star. She will also appear in a second season of the critically-acclaimed HBO series “Big Little Lies,” which she also executive produces.

In addition to the three Witherspoon projects, Apple is also prepping a reboot of “Amazing Stories” from executive producer Steven Spielberg, Ron Moore’s untitled space race drama, the drama “See” from Steven Knight and Francis Lawrence, and the docuseries “Home” from Matt Tyrnauer and Matthew Weaver.

Wiig is repped by UTA and Jackoway Tyerman. Witherspoon is repped by CAA, LBI Entertainment, and Hansen Jacobson. McGuinness is repped by WME and Hansen Jacobson.

Apple Developing ‘Are You Sleeping’ Starring Octavia Spencer

Apple is developing a new original drama series entitled “Are You Sleeping,” starring Octavia Spencer.

Created and written by Nichelle Tramble Spellman, the series will be produced by Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine and Chernin Ent/Endeavor Content.

The series is based on Kathleen Barber’s novel of the same name, which gives a glimpse into the obsession with true crime podcasts and “challenges its viewers to consider the consequences when the pursuit of justice is placed on a public stage.” Sarah Koenig, the creator and producer behind true crime podcast “Serial,” will consult on the series.

“Are You Sleeping” is the second project Apple has teamed with Witherspoon and Hello Sunshine on so far. In November 2017 the streamer ordered a drama set behind-the-scenes of a network morning talk show from Hello Sunshine. (Witherspoon is also set to star alongside Jennifer Aniston in it.)

“Are You Sleeping” is executive produced by Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter for Hello Sunshine, and Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping and Kristen Campo for Chernin Ent., alongside Spencer and Tramble.

November 9, 2017   •  Category: "Big Little Lies", Pacific Standard, Role RumorsComments Off on Big Little Lies Eyes Spring 2018 Production Start for Season 2; Jean-Marc Vallee not returning

Looks like a season 2 of Big Little Lies is happening! Reports are stating that filming on the second season will start next year, but that original director Jean-Marc Vallee will not return (he has previously been clear that he would not return):

Big Little Lies Eyes Spring 2018 Production Start for Season 2

It’s amazing how a crate full of Emmys can hasten the development process. Case in point: A second season of Big Little Lies is poised to become a reality (much) sooner than later.

Sources confirm to TVLine exclusively that HBO is eyeing a Spring 2018 production start for the female-driven phenom, which snagged eight Emmy statues in September, including for Outstanding Limited Series and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series for Nicole Kidman. As recently as two weeks ago, Big Little Lies EP/writer David E. Kelley strongly intimated to TVLine that a second season was nearing the scheduling stage.

“We’re kicking around ideas and trying to lasso the talent [and] get the band back together,” he shared. “It’s just a lot of logistical things. But I’m optimistic because everyone wants to do it. We feel we still have storytelling to do. No decision has been made yet, but we’re hopeful. Where we left it, I felt like it did open the opportunity for a lot more storytelling.”

An HBO rep declined to confirm anything about a potential second season.

Even before Big Little Lies triumphed at the Emmys, HBO asked Liane Moriarty — whose novel the miniseries was based on — to “take a crack at” coming with with a story for a potential second season. Kidman and fellow leading lady/EP Reese Witherspoon both expressed interest in keeping the franchise going, and director Jean-Marc Vallée — who initially balked at doing a sequel — now wants in. “It’d be great to reunite the team and to do it,” Vallée said backstage at the Emmys. “Are we going to be able to do it, altogether? I wish. We’ll see.”

‘Big Little Lies’: Reese Witherspoon Clears Way for Season 2, Exits ‘Pale Blue Dot’

Reese Witherspoon has dropped out of Noah Hawley’s Fox Searchlight film “Pale Blue Dot,” clearing the way for a second installment of HBO’s “Big Little Lies.”

A spokesperson for HBO did not confirm any information regarding “Big Little Lies” season 2.

Witherspoon had been attached to star in and produce “Pale Blue Dot” since 2015. Hawley, creator of FX’s “Fargo” and “Legion” came aboard last year to direct the film. based on the original spec script by Brian C. Brown and Elliott DiGuiseppi. The story follows a successful female astronaut who, after coming back home from a mission in space, starts to unravel when confronted by her seemingly-perfect American dream life. The story explores the theory that astronauts who spend long periods of time staring at the Earth from space begin to lose their sense of reality when they return home.

But Hawley’s busy schedule meant that production had to begin early next year. As “Big Little Lies” season two comes into focus, the task of managing multiple in-demand stars’ schedules made the same period the most likely window for work to begin on a second season.

TVLine reported Thursday that HBO is eyeing spring 2018 for production on a second “Big Little Lies” season.

“Big Little Lies” won eight Primetime Emmy Awards in September, tying Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” for the second most awards behind “Saturday Night Live.” Based on the novel by Liane Moriarty, “Big Little Lies starred Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, and Shailene Woodley. It tells the intersecting stories of multiple women living in the coastal California community of Monterey.

HBO has repeatedly declined to confirm whether a second season of “Big Little Lies” is in the works. Speaking backstage at the Emmys in September, Moriarty was asked about a possible season 2. ““I’m thinking about it,” she said. “It’s a beautiful possibility.”

It is yet unknown whether a second season of the series will be produced. Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston are also teaming up to star in and executive produce a series that will focus on a New York morning show.

Newman is a writer and producer known for her work on “That 70’s Show,” “How I Met Your Mother,” and “Galavant.” She also executive produced ABC’s “The Muppets” and wrote for “The Real O’Neals.” Wright wrote for and co-executive produced Fox’s “Lethal Weapon” series, and previously worked on shows like “Ash vs Evil Dead,” “Grimm,” “Charmed,” and “Walker, Texas Ranger.” He also created the Fox series “The Mob Doctor.”

Reese and her Home Again co-stars Candice Bergen, Jon Rudnitsky and Pico Alexander continued their promotional tour with an appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen last night. As well as their movie, Reese chatted about her upcoming TV show with Jennifer Aniston and Big Little Lies. The show had various games involving Reese and Candice’s movies, including Four Christmases, This Means War, Fear, Sweet Home Alabama, Legally Blonde, The Man In The Moon and Just Like Heaven – it was pretty funny seeing Reese’s reactions to these movies! She also re-created the Bend & Snap and explained how and when to use it. It was a really fun and lively interview, and nice to see Reese alongside Candice. She wore a dress by Bottega Veneta with Alaia shoes. Below are a few clips including their ‘after-show’ Q&A, and in our Gallery you can find photos of Reese arriving at the show studios, backstage, stills from the show, and HD screencaptures from the full interview:
