Hulu released a slew of new trailers on Friday, including for its hotly anticipated upcoming literary adaptations “Normal People” and “Little Fires Everywhere.”
“Normal People,” an adaptation of the bestselling novel by Sally Rooney, tracks the tender but complicated relationship of Marianne and Connell from the end of their school days in small-town west of Ireland to their undergraduate years at Trinity College.
The series stars Daisy Edgar-Jones as Marianne, and Paul Mescal as Connell. Rooney adapted her own novel with writers Alice Birch and Mark O’Rowe. Lenny Abrahamson and Hettie McDonald split directing duties on the 12-episode series.
“Little Fires Everywhere,” an eight-episode limited series based on the novel by Celeste Ng, is set to premiere on Hulu on March 18.
Starring Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington, the series follows the intertwined fates of the picture-perfect Richardson family and an enigmatic mother and daughter who upend their lives. Per Hulu, “The story explores 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.”
Joshua Jackson, Rosemarie DeWitt, Jade Pettyjohn, Jordan Elsass, Gavin Lewis, Megan Stott, Lexi Underwood and Huang Lu also star, with “Casual’s” Liz Tigelaar serving as writer and showrunner on the drama.
Hulu also released a new full-length trailer for the series adaptation of “High Fidelity” led by Zoe Kravitz.
A retelling of the 1995 novel by Nick Hornby and the 2000 feature film starring John Cusack, “High Fidelity” centers on Kravitz’s character, a record store owner in the rapidly gentrified neighborhood of Crown Heights, Brooklyn who revisits past relationships through music and pop culture, while trying to get over her one true love.
Da’Vine Joy Randolph, David H. Holmes, Jake Lacy and Kingsley Ben-Adir also star in the series from writers Veronica West and Sarah Kucserka. It is set to premiere on Feb. 14.
