Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern are teaming up again to develop an HBO drama based on a book by “Wild” author Cheryl Strayed.

The adaptation of Strayed’s 2012 book, “Tiny Little Things,” will explore love, loss, lust and life through the eyes of a Portland family who live by the mantra that the truth will never kill you. The book is a compilation of essays from Strayed’s time as an advice columnist.

The author will write the adaptation with her husband, Brian Lindstrom.

The couple will also serve as executive producers, alongside Witherspoon and Dern. Witherspoon’s producing partner Bruna Papandrea will also executive produce, as will Jayme Lemons.

Witherspoon and Dern previously co-starred in the 2014 film adaptation of Strayed’s memoir “Wild,” for which both actresses received Academy Award nominations.
