Television is about to land two majr stars for an upcoming show.

Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman have signed on to star in a limited series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on Liane Moriarty's best-selling novel "Big Little Lies," the David E. Kelley show has yet to secure a spot yet, but reports say it will likely be shopped around soon to the likes of HBO, Showtime, Netflix and Amazon.

"Big Little Lies" follows three mothers of kindergartners whose seemingly perfect lives unravel amid a murder investigation.

Witherspoon can be seen in the new movie "Wild" with Laura Dern. She's also attached to the upcoming crime film "Inherent Vice," co-starring Owen Wilson, Joaquin Phoenix and Josh Brolin.

Kidman recently hit the big screen in "Before I Go to Sleep" and has a slate of movies lined up for 2015, including "Strangerland" alongside Joseph Fiennes and "Genius" with Jude Law and Colin Firth.
