HBO, David E. Kelley, and Nicole Kidman are re-teaming for a new limited series titled The Undoing.
The series will be adapted for the small screen from Jean Hanff Korelitz’s 2014 best-selling book You Should Have Known. The novel tells the story of a successful therapist, Grace Sachs (Kidman) who’s about to publish her first book when disaster strikes and her perfect life is turned upside down.
“We’re thrilled to continue our creative relationships with both Nicole and David,” said Casey Bloys, president, HBO programming “and can’t wait to bring this show to life.”
“David has created another propulsive series with a fascinating, complicated female role at its center,” said Kidman. “I’m excited and honored to continue collaborating with HBO and David E Kelley.”
“I loved this book,” added Kelley in a statement. “A character-driven psychological thriller, I’m excited about the adaptation and thrilled to be able to do it with Nicole and HBO.”
Kidman will return to the second season of HBO’s Big Little Lies executive produced by Kelley. Her co-star, Reese Witherspoon has also landed an eight-episode straight-to-series order at Hulu with Kerry Washington.
