    There’s a new trailer for Little Fires Everywhere, the upcoming Hulu miniseries based on Celeste Ng’s 2017 novel, to get us through the next three weeks until its premiere on March 18. The story of interconnected family dramas in a Cleveland suburb, it features a particularly love-to-hate-her version of Reese Witherspoon in the role of Elena Richardson and Kerry Washington as Mia Warren, the elusive-seeming artist who rents an apartment from the Richardson family with her daughterand whose mysterious backstory drives Elena to a dangerous obsession with unveiling her past.

    Judging from the trailer, the 8-episode series—directed by Lynn Shelton and written by Celeste Ng and Liz Tigelaar—looks sure to deliver some great acting, a hefty dose of intrigue, and a fairly straightforward lesson on how to be the worst kind of white woman. What more could we want?
