HBO has ordered a new limited series from “Big Little Liars” star and scribe Nicole Kidman and David E. Kelley. Based on Jean Hanff Korelitz’s novel “You Should Have Known,” Kidman will star as Grace Sachs, a successful therapist on the brink of publishing her first book who 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.
“David has created another propulsive series with a fascinating, complicated female role at its center,” said Nicole Kidman in a statement. “I’m excited and honored to continue collaborating with HBO and David E. Kelley.”
Both Kelley and Kidman will serve as executive producers of “The Undoing.”
