Little Fires Everywhere follows middle-class, suburban mother Elena Richardson (played by Witherspoon) whose life is torn apart.

Journalist and mother-of-four Elena finds her picture-perfect, white picket idyll shattered after her mansion-like house is burnt down.

Within all of this comes the arrival of Mia Warren (Washington), an artist and tenant who is living in one of Elena’s properties.

As the series unfolds, it’s clear both of these women have potentially life-changing secrets and lies.

Little Fires Everywhere will explore the tensions in class, wealth and race through family drama and intrigue.

Reviews for Little Fires Everywhere have been positive with a 77 percent fresh rating on aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes.

Speaking about the all-important setpiece involving the blaze, cinematographer Trevor Forrest told Gold Derby: “You get that sense of the fire flickering on their skin and them thinking about what they’ve just done for a few beats before they go back and get their mother and drag her through the flames in the corridor.”

He said he wanted to “ratchet up the pressure points” over the episodes towards the finale.

 

Forrest said he achieved this increasing tension through the series using tighter shots and getting in closer to the characters through the lens.

The cinematographer was brought on board after speaking to the producers.

The show was a joint production between Witherspoon and Washington’s respective film companies Hello Sunshine and Simpson Street.

Along with starring in the series, they also serve as producers on the project.
