June 8, 2019

Monterey, California (CNN) — Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern, Zoë Kravitz and Shailene Woodley are the human stars of "Big Little Lies," the television adaptation of Liane Moriarty's story of the same name.

Originally set in a fictional Sydney, Australia, suburb, the story's setting was moved to California's Monterey Peninsula for the television series, and the location also plays a starring role on the show.

When Meryl Streep signed on to star in the second season, which premiered Sunday, June 9, on HBO, the peninsula got another chance to shine. (CNN and HBO share parent company WarnerMedia.)
