Big Little Lies is stacked with talents like Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern and Shailene Woodley, and we get to see all of them in the first trailer for the HBO miniseries. Directed by Jean-Marc Vallée (Dallas Buyers Club), Big Little Lies follows three mothers who live normal lives that are abruptly interrupted by tragedy.

The miniseries was adapted from Liane Moriarty’s best-selling 2014 novel of the same name. The trailer doesn’t illuminate much of the plot, but it does reveal plenty of emotion, the sound of a gunshot and maybe a little bit of sex as well, all set to the tune of “Papa Was a Rolling Stone.”

Although no specific premiere date has been announced, Big Little Lies is expected to hit HBO in 2017. With a cast like that, you can expect it to be a featured player the Emmys, probably in more than one category. Check out the first teaser for the show above.
