Hulu has revealed a first look at the original series Tiny Beautiful Things, based on Cheryl Strayed’s best-selling book (buy now).
Starring Kathryn Hahn, Sarah Pidgeon, Quentin Plair, and Tanzyn Crawford, Tiny Beautiful Things will premiere on Hulu in Spring 2023.
Based on the best-selling collection by Cheryl Strayed, Tiny Beautiful Things follows Clare (Kathryn Hahn), a floundering writer who becomes a revered advice columnist while her own life is falling apart.
When we first meet Clare, her marriage to her husband Danny is barely limping along; her teenage daughter, Rae, is pushing her away; and her once-promising writing career is non-existent.
So when an old writing pal asks her to take over as the advice columnist Dear Sugar, she thinks she has no business giving anyone advice.
After reluctantly taking on the mantle of Sugar however, Clare’s life unfurls in a complex fabric of memory, exploring her most pivotal moments from childhood through present day, and excavating the beauty, struggle, and humor in her unhealed wounds.
Through Sugar, Clare forms a salve for her readers — and for herself — to show us that we are not beyond rescue, that our stories can ultimately save us. And, perhaps, bring us back home.
The series guest stars Owen Painter, Merritt Wever, Elizabeth Hinkler, and Michaela Watkins.
Liz Tigelaar serves as creator and executive producer of the series from ABC Signature and Hello Sunshine.
Lauren Neustadter, Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Jayme Lemons, Cheryl Strayed, Stacey Silverman, and Kathryn Hahn are also executive producers on the series.
