"BIG LITTLE LIES" ACHIEVES SERIES HIGH AS IT APPROACHES FINALE THIS SUNDAY, APRIL 2; MOMENTUM FOR LIMITED DRAMA SERIES CONTINUES TO BUILD WITH CRITICAL PRAISE

Episodes Are Averaging Over Seven Million Viewers To Date

As the finale of BIG LITTLE LIES arrives this SUNDAY, APRIL 2 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT), HBO's seven-episode limited drama series continues to inspire critical praise and strong viewership. This past Sunday, BIG LITTLE LIES hit a record high, with a Sunday night audience of two million viewers and, based on available data, is already averaging over seven million viewers in gross audience (tracking ahead of "The Night Of" at the same time of its run; "The Night Of" went on to average 8.2 million viewers).

Among the critical raves, Variety has called the show "deeply satisfying," adding that "the limited series has the continuous, clear vision of cinema." The New Yorker hailed BIG LITTLE LIES for its "strong performances," while TV Guide called it "an irresistible social satire with a fabulous cast and a killer hook." Vanity Fair described the show as "sharp and thoughtful," adding that the series "delivers us to TV heaven," and the New York Post termed the series "absorbing" and "first-rate."

Major talent tweeting praise to their millions of followers include Oprah Winfrey ("SO well done"), Kerry Washington ("HBO has done it again" and "I'm obsessed") and Lorde ("please inject more Big Little Lies DIRECTLY into my veins"), among many others.

Based on Liane Moriarty's bestselling book of the same name, this subversive, darkly comedic drama tells the tale of three mothers of first-graders whose seemingly perfect lives unravel to the point of murder. Starring Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Alexander Skarsg�rd, Laura Dern, Adam Scott, Zo� Kravitz, James Tupper and Jeffrey Nordling, BIG LITTLE LIES is directed by Jean-Marc Vallée from scripts by David E. Kelley.
