In what would mark her first major TV gig since Secret Life of the American Teenager, Shailene Woodley is nearing a deal to join HBO’s star-studded limited series Big Little Lies opposite Oscar winners Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon.
Kidman leaked Woodley’s casting Saturday at India’s Hindustan Times Leadership Summit, according to our sister site Deadline.
David E. Kelley is penning the adaptation of Liane Moriarty’s 2014 darkly comic novel about three three mothers (Kidman, Witherspoon and Woodley) of kindergartners whose seemingly perfect lives unravel to the point of murder.
Production on the eight-episode series begins in January.
HBO declined to comment.
