Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, and David E. Kelley and based on Liane Moriarty's book of the same name, BIG LITTLE LIES is a one-hour dramedy series set in the tranquil seaside town of Monterey, California, where nothing is quite as it seems. Doting moms, successful husbands, adorable children, beautiful homes: What lies will be told to keep their perfect worlds from unraveling? Told through the eyes of three mothers -- Madeline, Celeste and Jane -- this seven-episode limited series paints a picture of a town fueled by rumors and divided into the haves and have-nots, exposing the conflicts, secrets and betrayals that compromise relationships between husbands and wives, parents and children, and friends and neighbors. The mothers of Monterey include: Madeline Martha Mackenzie, a whirlwind of energy and good intentions, whose compulsion to set things right has unintended consequences; Celeste Wright, the envy of her peers and a statuesque beauty, who appears to have it all -- twins, wealth and the perfect husband; Jane, a single mom of modest means with a mysterious past, who is new not only to Monterey but to the complicated social hierarchy of Otter Bay Elementary School, where her son is a student; Renata Klein, a powerful career woman, who is an anti-bullying crusader at the center of schoolyard politics -- on and off the playground; and Bonnie Carlson, married to Madeline's ex-husband, who is a spiritual yoga instructor and a sensitive soul with a strong moral compass.
On Sunday, April 2, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT, HBO premiered the season finale of BIG LITTLE LIES. In the season ender, "You Get What You Need," After yet another fight, Celeste makes a bold move. Before the school's long-awaited fall fundraiser, Madeline deals with fallout from her past, while Jane learns who's really been hurting Amabella at school.
