Kathryn Hahn is following in the footsteps of Reese Witherspoon in “Tiny Beautiful Things,” another project based on a Cheryl Strayed book. Witherspoon played the author in 2014’s “Wild” and Hahn will portray a character based on her in “Tiny Beautiful Things,” an upcoming Hulu series that counts Witherspoon among its exec producers. “How did I get so far from the person I wanted to be?” Clare (Hahn) asks in a new trailer for the drama.
By her own admission, Clare’s life is “a mess.” She explains, “My husband kicked me out a few days ago. My daughter hates me.” When an old pal suggests that the floundering writer take a job as an advice columnist, she’s skeptical about her suitability. “I’m not giving anybody advice,” Clare insists. She eventually agrees to take on the role, a decision that inspires her to reflect on her past, present, and future.
“Tiny Beautiful Things” launches on Hulu April 7. Rachel Goldenberg (“Minx”), Desiree Akhavan (“Hacks”), and Stacie Passon (“Dickinson”) direct. Liz Tigelaar (“Little Fires Everywhere”) created the series and serves as showrunner.
