“Big Little Lies,” “The Hypnotist’s Love Story,” “Truly Madly Guilty”
Moriarty released “Big Little Lies” in 2014. Three years later, its HBO adaptation scored eight Emmys and spawned a second, off-book season. Moriarty’s story
was integral to the success of the adaptation the first time, so they brought her back in to create another story for the second season, due in 2019. Power players including David E. Kelley, Jean-Marc Vallee, Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon have returned for the second season, joined by Meryl Streep. Moriarty’s “Truly Madly Guilty” is also being adapted for HBO, with Kidman, Bruna Papandrea, and Per Saari attached to produce, and “The Hypnotist’s Love Story” is in the works at ABC.
