Nicole Kidman Reuniting With 'Big Little Lies' Producers For New HBO Series

- Reuters picLOS ANGELES, March 13 ― Big Little Lies writer David E. Kelley, producer Bruna Papandrea and actress Nicole Kidman will reunite for the channel's new miniseries, reported Deadline.

Kelley will executive produce The Undoing through David E. Kelley Productions and will serve as the showrunner.

'David has created another propulsive series with a fascinating, complicated female role as its centre, ' she said. The story will find Grace Sachs (Kidman), a successful therapist who is on the brink of publishing her first book.

However, the weeks before her book release, her world turns upside down with a violent death, missing husband and awful chain of revelations. Left to pick up the pieces after the "very public disaster", Grace "must dismantle one life and create another for her child and herself" - and face the horror she feels in knowing she failed to heed her own warnings. Kidman will again star and executive produce with Per Saari for Blossom Films while Kelley will write and executive produce.

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. A search for a director is underway.

Nicole Kidman is set to star in "The Undoing". The Undoing represents a reunion for most of the creative team behind HBO awards darling Big Little Lies. For his part, Kelley certainly seems eager to adapt Korelitz's novel, which he describes as "a character-driven psychological thriller".

Before Kidman appears in The Undoing, she'll reprise her role as Celeste Wright in season two of Big Little Lights.

First, Reese Witherspoon announced a new Hulu series with Kerry Washington.

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