Nicole Kidman to lead another HBO series The Undoing


The Undoing, starring Kidman and written by David E. Kelley, is a murder mystery set among the world of New York's private school parents. Check, and congratulations, you've completed the Roles I'd Like To See Nicole Kidman Play scorecard. "I'm excited and honored to continue collaborating with HBO and David E Kelley".

The actresses will star in and executive produce the series. Big Little Lies was one of those shows, which was originally intended as a limited series but was such a hit on HBO that the network not only paid up for a second season, but enlisted Andrea Arnold to direct and Meryl Streep to co-star.

Kidman and Kelley both won Emmys for "Big Little Lies" past year - she for acting and producing, he for producing - as part of the series' eight-trophy haul.

"We're thrilled to continue our creative relationships with both Nicole and David", said Casey Bloys, president of HBO programming, "and can't wait to bring this show to life". A search for a director is underway. The project has yet to announce an episode count, although Deadline reported the series will likely be in the same range as Big Little Lies Season 1, which consisted of seven episodes. 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". Papandrea will exec produce through her company Made Up Stories.

Kidman won an Emmy, Golden Globe and SAG Award for her role as Celeste Wright on Big Little Lies. Witherspoon teamed with Kerry Washington to topline and executive produce Little Fires Everywhere, which just landed at Hulu with an eight-episode straight-to-series order.

Kelley is repped by CAA and Michael Gendler; Blossom Films is with CAA and Alan Werthheimer; Papandrea is with WME.
