Joshua Jackson Set as Male Lead in Hulu's "Little Fires Everywhere"

Joshua Jackson, fresh off 'The Affair' and appearing in this month's 'When They See Us' on Netflix has signed on to the Hulu adaptation of Celeste Ng's bestseller 'Little Fires Everywhere.' He will play the husband to Reese Witherspoon's Elena. Kerry Washington also will star.

The Witherspoon/Washington executive-produced drama will be an eight-episode limited series about two families amid a custody battle. The series will explore "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."
