Some actresses are legendary and when you place them together you have a truly iconic and dynamic moment! Enter Hulu’s latest original series, “Little Fires Everywhere,” starring Kerry Washington and Reese Witherspoon! Based on the book of the same by Celeste Ng, the series centers on two mothers from very different walks of life. Set in the late nineties, Elena Richards (Witherspoon) is an upper class and well to do newspaper editor with OCD who prioritizes her home, family, and traditional values to an anal degree. Meanwhile, Mia Warren (Washington) is a single mother and artist who travels the country working with her teen daughter, Pearl (Lexi Underwood).

Mia rents one of Elena’s homes and the two soon begin an uneasy and unconventional tenant-landlady relationship as their children become friends and the former begins working for the latter in her home. Unbeknownst to both women, both families are hiding secrets–“little fires everywhere– that with the right conditions could set their lives ablaze–literally!

Grade: A+

“Little Fires Everywhere” is easily the best original series Hulu has ever created. The show is brilliantly cast and challenges so many social norms and stereotypes. The epithets of race, class, sexuality, and parental bonds are moving, relatable, and uncomfortably necessary as they force you to rethink your own stereotypes and perceptions of others. We all know a Mia Warren and an Elena Richards.

These women are your neighbors, community leaders, local employees, etc. The drama playing between and personally intertwined in both families is deliciously intricate like thick spider webs surrounding a house fly–prepare to gorge! Honestly, we love seeing Kerry Washington as a single mom, stripped from her former “Scandal” days as Olivia Pope. She is Mia now and we see it and believe it. Reese makes us flashback to her Manchester Academy days from “Cruel Intentions,” but is now all grown up in a “Stepford Wives” kind of way.

The series premieres exclusively on Hulu Tuesday, March 17! Happy Viewing!

The nine-episode series is composed of three compelling parts – The Evidence, The Witness and The Prosecution. These stories expose difficult truths about the state of America’s deeply flawed criminal justice system, while showing when the innocent are convicted, it is not just one life that is irreparably damaged forever: families, victims of crime and trust in the system are also broken in the process. The Innocence Files is executive produced and directed by Academy Award® nominee Liz Garbus, Academy Award® winner Alex Gibney, Academy Award® winner Roger Ross Williams; with episodes also directed by Academy Award® nominee Jed Rothstein, Emmy Award® winner Andy Grieve and Sarah Dowland.

Documentaries like The Innocence Files are so needed and riveting. How many times nowadays have we heard of cases  and convictions being overturned due to new evidence. In this country you are suppose to be guilty until proven innocent, but there are so many stories where this is rarely the case. Just check out Netflix’s “When They See Us”  with The Exonerated 5 or Just Mercy starring Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx.

(P) Saturday, March 21 (9 p.m. – 10 p.m. ET/PT) Episode: All Buttoned Up

We have to say we are really rooting for all of these couples. We recently had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Dwayne and Theresa Bowe, and we are convinced Spirit is working some magic over there. This series is definitely off to a fiery start. From the looks of it Sundy and Breyon have a lot to sort through. Sundy’s stance is a bit tough, but we have to admit the infidelity on Breyon’s part seems intolerable. Multiple girlfriends?  Theresa and Spinderella seem to be bonding and relate well to each other. They definitely seem to have it more “together” than some of the other ladies involved in the show.

You all just be sure to check out “Love Goals” this Saturday night only on OWN, at 9/8 PM EST, check your local listing for showtimes.
