Get ready to see Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington streaming soon on a screen near you: the stars’ adaptation of Little Fires Everywhere is headed to Hulu, which ordered the show straight to series. Producers met with a number of possible networks before finding a home with the streaming giant, which is most notably home to The Handmaid’s Tale.

Last September, Witherspoon chose the novel by Celeste Ng—about arson and the aftermath of a controversial adoption of a Chinese-American baby in an Ohio suburb—as her book club’s pick. Witherspoon’s production company, Hello Sunshine, quickly secured the adaptation rights. The show will be co-produced by Hello Sunshine, ABC Signature Studios, and Washington’s production company Simpson Street. Liz Tigelaar (Life UnexpectedCasual) is on board as showrunner.
