While the original murder mystery novel by famed author Liane Moriarty takes place in Australia, the TV series will be set in Monterey.

Executive producers and location scouts for the miniseries noted that Monterey is a “beautiful part of the world” and “an idyllic backdrop” which is key for the TV show.

Filming will take place at various locations along the Monterey Peninsula including Lovers Point, Ocean View Avenue, Old Fisherman’s Wharf and Carmel Highlands.

 “Big Little Lies” is currently set to premier on HBO sometime in 2017.
