Around the remote: New HBO whodunit ‘Big Little Lies’ features star-studded cast

By Chuck Barney Tribune News Service

DON’T MISS: “Big Little Lies” – A stellar cast featuring Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley and Laura Dern bolsters this juicy, seven-episode whodunit. Adapted by David E. Kelley from a best-selling novel, it’s set in the tranquil coastal town of Monterey, where alpha females and trophy wives lead seemingly carefree lives in majestic homes. But the glossy picture-perfectionism is shattered when someone ends up dead during a swanky fundraiser gala. 9 p.m. Sunday, HBO.

SUNDAY: Pete Holmes stars in the new semi-autobiographical comedy “Crashing.” He’s a suburban nice guy who is married to his childhood sweetheart and dreams of making it as a stand-up comedian.
