Following the success of HBO’s Big Little Lies last year, Nicole Kidman and David E. Kelley will be teaming up for another HBO series, psychological thriller The Undoing, set to be aired on Foxtel.
Based on Jean Hanff Korelitz’s bestselling book You Should Have Known, The Undoing has been adapted by Kelley and centres 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.
The Undoing will air on Foxtel’s Showcase channel. Dates TBC.
