The Undoing - Nicole Kidman to Star in HBO Limited Series from David E. Kelley



HBO is re-teaming with key auspices behind its breakout Big Little Lies for a new limited series based on a bestselling book, including star Nicole Kidman and writer David E. Kelley. The network has ordered The Undoing, an adaptation of Jean Hanff Korelitz’s book You Should Have Known, with Kidman attached to star.

Adapted by Kelley, The Undoing based on You Should Have Known, published in 2014 by Grand Central Publishing, centers on Grace Sachs (Kidman), who is living the only life she ever wanted for herself. She’s a successful therapist on the brink of publishing her first book, has a devoted husband and young son who attends an elite 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.

“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.”

Like with BLL, Kelley executive produces through David E. Kelley Productions and will serve as showrunner. Kidman executive produces with Per Saari through their Blossom Films alongside another BLL executive producer, Bruna Papandrea, vie Made Up Stories. A search for a director is underway. The number of episodes is TBD, it will likely be be in the same range as BLL, whose first season consisted of 7 episodes.

“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,” said Kelley, “A character driven psychological thriller, I’m excited about the adaptation and thrilled to be able to do it with Nicole and HBO.”
