Starring Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington, Little Fires Everywhere follows the intertwined fates of the picture-perfect Richardson family and an enigmatic mother and daughter who upend their lives. Based on Celeste Ng's 2017 bestseller, 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.
Several main cast members of Life Unexpected (2010), also created by Liz Tigelaar, appeared on this show: Austin Basis, Britt Robertson and Kristoffer Polaha. Shiri Appleby was impossible to book due to her directing duties, and Kerr Smith wanted to do it but Tigelaar didn't want a Dawson's Creek reunion because she thought it could be distracting.

I read the book and am now watching the show and noooo... I can't do it. I told my daughter all about this and she really wanted to watch it so we're doing it but if it weren't for her I wouldn't be watching. They changed all the good parts of the book. It's disappointing.
