SECRETS BEHIND BIG LITTLE LIES

WHAT IT’S LIKE WORKING WITH STREEP

The award-winning HBO series features neurotic busybody Madeline Martha Mackenzie (Reese Witherspoon), abused housewife Celeste Wright (Nicole Kidman), and young mum Jane Chapman (Shailene Woodley), all dealing with their own secrets … and lies.

Add to that laid-back yoga guru Bonnie (Zoe Kravitz) and resident drama queen Renata (Laura Dern), and Big Little Lies’ first season — which screens on Foxtel in Australia — was one of the breakout hits of 2017.

Known for its darkly comedic script (“I love my grudges, I tend to them like little pets”) and dreamy styling, including a seriously enviable set wardrobe, Big Little Lies was a ratings and on-demand streaming hit both in the US and Australia.

The TV series was based on the book of the same name by Australian author Liane Moriarty, who penned a “novella” on which the second series is based.

Sydney-based Moriarty said she wrote the role of Kidman’s mother-in-law Mary Louise with Streep in mind, and Kidman played a huge part in securing the Hollywood icon.

“I was about half way through (writing) and I was talking to the producers and I said, I’ve got this role of Perry’s mother and … not quite believing my own audacity, I’d like Meryl to play this character,” Moriarty previously told News Corp Australia.

Though the manuscript will not be released publicly, it was used as the framework for Hollywood mega-screenwriter David E. Kelley when he wrote the plot and scripts for the second series.

The first of seven new episodes will pick up where the first series ended — in the aftermath of Perry’s death.

The circumstances surrounding his murder on the steps at Otter Bay Elementary School, during an Elvis and Audrey Hepburn-themed fancy dress fundraiser, lead detectives to investigate the women, dubbed “the Monterey five”.

“It’s going to get us, it’s going to get us all,” Bonnie (Zoe Kravitz) says to Madeline (Reese Witherspoon) in the trailer.

Madeline looks puzzled: “What are we talking about?”

“The lie,” Bonnie responds.

Big Little Lies’ second series screens on Foxtel’s Showcase on June 10 at 11am. It is repeated at 8.30pm.
