The two latest A-listers to make the small screen jump are Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon!
The two leading ladies have signed on to star in Big Little Lies, a limited series based on the book by Liane Moriarty.
Set to be written by Boston Legal creator David E. Kelley, the show will revolve around three kindergarten mothers who become embroiled in a murder mystery.
Lies doesn't have a network yet, but with names like Nicole and Reese attached, we're pretty sure they'll have a home in no time!
