She will exec produce alongside Witherspoon, her Hello Sunshine topper Lauren Neustadter and Wiig.

Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon, who play Celeste Wright and Madeline Martha Mackenzie on the show, will reportedly take home about $US1million ($1.26 million) per episode, plus executive producer fees and back-end points.

Saturday Night Live alum Kristen Wiig is returning to TV in a starring role. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Apple has given a 10-episode series order to a half-hour comedy starring Wiig and produced by Reese Witherspoon based on Chris Sittenfeld's short story collection You Think It, I'll Say It, which is slated to hit bookstores in April. The still-untitled show - which has yet to be attached to a studio - is the tech company's first big scripted comedy series, though it's not Apple's first project with Witherspoon. Her other recent film credits include "The Martian", "Downsizing", and "Ghostbusters". The first is an untitled morning show drama, starring herself and Jennifer Aniston.


With so much original content in the works, many are wondering if Apple is about to announce their own streaming platform.

Big Little Lies, the HBO mini-series that was originally planned as a seven-episode arch, is officially coming back for a second season - with a number of changes. McGuinness is repped by WME and Hansen Jacobson.

In a piece published by The Hollywood Reporter, it's been revealed that season two of the Golden Globe and Emmy-winning miniseries is going to be more expensive than anyone was anticipating.
