Calling all Big Little Lies fans: your new favorite show is here and it comes in both book and TV form. There’s a whole trio of wonderful people you can thank for this offering and its connections to the BLL universe: First, author Liane Moriarty, whose book Big Little Lies was first picked up by HBO and whose other novel, Nine Perfect Strangers, forms the basis for this new series. Second, there’s Big Little Lies creator David E. Kelley (also known — by us — as Michelle Pfeiffer’s husband), who has a writing credit on Nine Perfect Strangers alongside Moriarty herself, guaranteeing the same twists and turns (and snappy comebacks) that made the Monterey drama click. And finally, there’s Nicole Kidman, the star of both BLL and new show Nine Perfect Strangers, and this time, she’s diving even deeper into the world of what rich, troubled people might do to wash away their woes.
Nine Perfect Strangers follows — you guessed it — nine strangers who find themselves at a 10-day wellness retreat together, each there to heal a unique set of woes. The resort director Masha (Nicole Kidman) has promised a transformative experience — but even the most seasoned wellness pros among them couldn’t predict Masha’s unconventional methods. Kidman is joined by Melissa McCarthy as Frances, an inquisitive romance writer, Luke Evans as Lars, a handsome divorce attorney, Manny Jacinto as Yao, Masha’s devoted attendant, Michael Shannon, Regina Hall, Bobby Cannavale, and more.
