Little Fires Everywhere - casting announcement

Hulu's highly anticipated upcoming (8-episode) limited series, Little Fires Everywhere, announces additional series regulars: Jade Pettyjohn, Jordan Elsass, Gavin Lewis, Megan Stott and Lexi Underwood. This teen cast joins previously announced series regulars and executive producers, Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington, as well as Rosemarie DeWitt.

Logline: Based on Celeste Ng's 2017 bestseller, Little Fires Everywhere follows the intertwined fates of the picture-perfect Richardson family and an enigmatic mother and daughter who upend their lives. 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.

The series is produced by Reese Witherspoon's Hello Sunshine, Kerry Washington's Simpson Street and ABC Signature Studios. Liz Tigelaar ("Life Unexpected," "Casual") will serve as creator, showrunner and executive producer.

Character Descriptions

· Jade Pettyjohn as LEXIE RICHARDSON

· She's popular, smart, bossy, and driven. She's also determined to follow in her mother's footsteps (Reese Witherspoon). She sees things in black and white and her biggest personal hardships have been not being allowed to get her bellybutton pierced and getting a Ford Explorer that was last years' model. She has her entire future with her boyfriend, Brian, planned out. First Yale, then marriage, then settling down in Shaker just like her mother did... until her plans and sense of self are upended by a new family who moves to town.

· Jordan Elsass as TRIP RICHARDSON

· A Shaker Heights high school junior, Trip is 'small town jock' handsome. A three-sport athlete, he's known as a player.

But when he becomes involved with the daughter of Shaker Heights' new and mysterious resident, he reveals himself to be more than he first appeared.

· Gavin Lewis as MOODY RICHARDSON

· A high school sophomore who is a Vonnegut reader, Kurt Cobain conspiracy theorist, and once attended a Toad the Wet Sprocket concert alone, Moody struggles to find his place in his family and with his peers.

When a new girl moves to town, Moody hurries to claim her.

· Megan Stott as IZZY RICHARDSON

· The black sheep of her family, Izzy has trouble living up to the expectations of her mother Elena (Reese Witherspoon), who just wants Izzy to fit in.

When free-spirited artist, Mia (Kerry Washington) moves to town, she becomes everything to Izzy - mother figure, best friend, idol. They develop an unlikely friendship that helps Izzy channel her rebellion and begin to understand and accept herself.

· Lexi Underwood as PEARL WARREN

· Tired of relocating from town to town with her artist mother, Mia (Kerry Washington), Pearl dreams of settling down for a normal life in Shaker Heights, Ohio and feeling like a normal kid.
