Foxtel has confirmed it will be the home for HBO’s new limited series, The Undoing, with the psychological thriller to air exclusively on showcase. The series will again team Nicole Kidman and writer David E. Kelley.
Mediaweek mentioned the new series yesterday.
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.
Kelley will write and executive produce along with Kidman and Per Saari through Blossom Films and Bruna Papandrea through Made Up Stories.
Blossom Films, created by Nicole Kidman and Per Saari, executive-produced the Emmy-winning limited series Big Little Lies for HBO.
Foxtel Executive director of television, Brian Walsh, said: “We’re delighted to be the exclusive Australian broadcaster of Nicole Kidman’s next television project, which is set to be another smash hit series for both HBO and Foxtel. Nicole and David E. Kelley are an unbeatable combination, and we’re looking forward to bringing both The Undoing and the second series of Big Little Lies to showcase.”
