During the second day of ABC’s Virtu-Fall Presentations, Big Sky executive producer and showrunner David E. Kelley said there’s no secret to creating a successful TV show. For the notable Big Little Lies creator helming a hit title can be quite simple.

The showrunner, joined by cast members including Katheryn Winnick, Kylie Bunbury and Ryan Phillippe, teased what thriller enthusiasts can expect in the new ABC series, which will debut Nov 17.

From ‘The Great’ to ‘Euphoria,’ TV Textualizes the Teen Girl Experience

From ‘The Great’ to ‘Euphoria,’ TV Textualizes the Teen Girl Experience
Looking back at some of my favorite new characters from the past year of television, I realized with a burst of pleasant surprise that many of them are, in fact, teenage girls.

For as much as TV has been fascinated by them, it has been rarely good at portraying them with anything approaching nuance. On-screen, they’re overwhelmingly either very silly as the butt of everyone else’s derisive jokes, or alarmingly mature as temptress sirens for wayward men. The truth of teenagers hanging somewhere between childhood and adulthood constantly gets lost as writers push them toward one extreme or the other. In the past year, though, more shows centering teen girls leaned into that exact “not a girl, not yet a woman” dichotomy — and came out richer for it.

Hulu’s “The Great,” starring executive producer Elle Fanning as Catherine the Great, examines the near impossible spot she was

‘Little Fires Everywhere’ Showrunner on How Making Mia Black Changed Everything for Hulu Adaptation

‘Little Fires Everywhere’ Showrunner on How Making Mia Black Changed Everything for Hulu Adaptation
This story about Liz Tigelaar and “Little Fires Everywhere” first appeared in the Limited Series & Movies issue of TheWrap’s Emmy magazine.

The Hulu adaptation of Celeste Ng’s “Little Fires Everywhere” came to a conclusion just over a month before George Floyd was killed at the hands of a white police officer. Viewers discovering the Kerry Washington- and Reese Witherspoon-led limited series’ treatment of race and class might label the show even more relevant now amid hundreds of #BlackLivesMatter protests, but showrunner Liz Tigelaar said “Little Fires Everywhere” may only seem timelier based on the color of your skin.

“To anyone Black, this has always been relevant,” she said. “I think who it has become more relevant to is the white people who were blind to it or not thinking about it or had the privilege of not thinking about it.”

Tigelaar said she and her writers

Jade Pettyjohn took great inspiration from her onscreen mom, Reese Witherspoon, on the set of Hulu’s “Little Fires Everywhere.” Pettyjohn plays Lexie Richardson, the privileged eldest daughter of Witherspoon’s character, Elena, who has always been the perfect daughter in her mother’s eyes. “[Lexie] has always actively watched and observed and taken the colors of her mother so it was important for me as an actor to be able to see how Reese would play Elena Richardson,” Pettyjohn says in an exclusive new interview with Gold Derby. “I had lots of conversations with her about it and just watching her in her element was a masterclass in herself.” Watch the full video interview with Pettyjohn above.
