Nicole Kidman to executive produce and star in The Undoing limited series

The premium cable network has handed out a straight-to-series order for The Undoing, a limited series starring Kidman that reunites the actress with Big Little Lies writer David E. Kelley and exec producer Bruna Papandrea. The Undoing is also based on a book called You Should Have Known, written by Jean Hanff Korelitz. The new miniseries will star Kidman as Grace Sachs, described as living the only life she ever wanted for herself. Kelley will exec produce and write the scripts that focus on Grace Sachs (Kidman), a successful therapist who's about to publish her first book when disaster strikes - someone dies, her husband goes missing, and her ideal life with her son is turned upside down.

When disaster strikes ― a violent death, the disappearance of her husband, and a series of disturbing revelations ― and her world falls apart, Grace has to build a new life while still piecing together what happened to her old one. "I'm excited and honored to continue collaborating with HBO and David E Kelly".

Latest news reveals that HBO is re-teaming three of the driving forces behind Big Little Lies for the its next big project.

A search for a director is under way. Blossom is now developing an adaptation of the books The Silent Wife, Reconstructing Amelia, Janice Lee's best-seller The Expatriates, and the off-Broadway vampire play Cuddles.

"I loved this book", added Kelley in a statement. She will reprise her role of Celeste Wright in Big Little Lies next year.

Both stars and executive producers of Big Little Lies, Kidman and Reese Witherspoon, have high-profile limited series based on bestselling books lined up as a followup to BLL.
