HBO has acquired the limited series The Undoing starring Nicole Kidman and written by David E. Kelley
Nicole Kidman (Big Little Lies) is set to star in the upcoming limited HBO series The Undoing, according to Deadline. The series is an adaptation of the Jean Hanff Korelitz book You Should Have Known. The adaptation was written by David E. Kelley.
The Undoing is the story of Grace Sachs (Kidman), who is a successful therapist with a book on the way, a good marriage and a son in a private school in New York City. “Weeks before her book is published, a chasm opens in her life: a violent death, a missing husband, and, in the place of a man Grace thought she knew, only a chain of terrible revelations. Left behind in the wake of a spreading and very public disaster, and horrified by the ways in which she has failed to heed her own advice, Grace must dismantle one life and create another for her child and herself.”
Kelley will executive produce The Undoing through David E. Kelley Productions and will serve as the showrunner. Kidman will also executive produce with Per Saari for Blossom Films with Bruna Papandrea for Made Up Stories. The site reports that, though there isn’t a set episode count, it will likely be close to Big Little Lies, which had seven episodes in season 1.
