Whoever in marketing made this connection between the 'Big Little Lies' cast deserves a promotion.
A new ad for 'Big Little Lies' is earning high praise for its design - and rightly so.
The show returns for its second season to HBO soon.
Returning cast members include Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Zoe Kravitz and Laura Dern.
They're joined by Meryl Streep (*squeals with excitement*) who'll plays Kidman's character's mother-in-law.
It's an insane line-up and as this new ad shows, their names couldn't be better matched to one another.

People were absolutely loving how simple yet beautiful the ad is. Here were some of the reactions from Twitter:
Also, each of these women so clearly had a billing order built into their contract, its jaw-dropping this worked out so perfectly. Its a stunning feat of design AND contracts.

You KNOW that Dern was supposed to have third billing and they went to her and were like "ok, if you're second to last we can do this fun thing" and she said "do it"

The ad guy must have felt like a god unveiling this billboard idea to the boardroom.

Other new additions to the cast of season 2 include Martin Donovan ('Weeds'), Crystal Fox and Douglas Smith. Adam Smith rejoins the regular cast.
Andrea Arnold, who previously directed episodes of 'Transparent' and 'I Love Dick', is directing this season instead of Jean-Marc Vallée.
Little is known about the plot so far other than that Streep's character is hell-bent on discovering who murdered her son. The other leading ladies will likely be working hard to keep the truth from her.
'Big Little Lies' returns to HBO for its second and final season on June 9th.
