Big Little Lies
Speaking at a recent event, actress/producer Nicole Kidman spoke about her love of HBO’s “Big Little Lies” series when she dropped the surprising suggestion that a third season of the popular and well-received David E. Kelley series is in the works.

She says: “I loved ‘Big Little Lies’ because it sort of came along at a time in my life when I had my children and I was thinking I was going to retire. Then this situation came along, where Reese Witherspoon and I were able to produce that show and create that show. And then all of you watched it and made it a massive success… and we will be bringing you a third one, just FYI.” [Source: E! Online]
