Get excited because 2020 is going to be a great year for television.

On the red carpet at the 2020 Golden GlobesE! News caught up exclusively with Kerry Washington on her upcoming Hulu show, Little Fires Everywhere.

The show, which is based on the book by the same name, casts Reese Witherspoon across from Washington and Washington gushed about the experience.

"I'm doing it with Reese Witherspoon. We're starring in it together, we produced it together," she started. "I loved the book and I loved the show and I love her."

Ryan Seacrest asked for details around the plot and Washington continued that, "It's really about mothers. It's about how hard it is to be a mom and [when] sometimes your kids find comfort with people other than you."

She added that, "It's really about class and race and love and we play very different kinds of moms."

"Reese is extraordinary," she concluded, and we agree!
