Joshua Jackson joins Kerry Washington and Reese Witherspoon in the forthcoming limited series Little Fires Everywhere.
The limited series is based on Celeste Ng’s bestselling book of the same name. Developed and written by Liz Tigelaar, the series hails from Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine and Washington’s Simpson Street and ABC Signature Studios.
The eight-episode series follows the intertwined fates of the picture-perfect Richardson family and an enigmatic mother (Washington) and daughter (Lexi Underwood) who upend their lives. The story explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, the ferocious pull of motherhood — and the danger in believing that following the rules can avert disaster.
Jackson will play Bill Richardson, a Shaker Heights attorney who hails from modest means, Bill is the perfectly suited counterweight to his energetic and strong-willed wife, Elena (Witherspoon). But when Bill agrees to represent their friends in a fiery custody battle, the couple begins to fight about more than just their challenging youngest daughter, Izzy (Megan Stott).
