The actress will reunite with Kelley and fellow 'Big Little Lies' exec producer Bruna Papandrea on the drama which is based on Jean Hanff Korelitz's book 'You Should Have Known.'

"Big Little Lies" will air next year and surely HBO won't have two Nicole Kidman-David E. Kelley projects going head-to-head at the Emmys, right?

Nicole Kidman will star in the HBO limited series called The Undoing. 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 awful revelations.

When disaster strikes ― a violent death, the disappearance of her husband, and a series of disturbing revelations ― and her world falls apart, Grace has to build a new life while still piecing together what happened to her old one. In 2017, she was also seen in mystery TV drama Top of the Lake, and films How to Talk to Girls at Parties, The Killing of a Sacred Deer, and The Beguiled. "I'm excited and honored to continue collaborating with HBO and David E. Kelly".

Kelley will write the script and serve as showrunner.

A director has not yet been announced. Bruna Papandrea will executive produce for Made Up Stories.


The producers are now searching for a director. Papandrea will exec produce through her company Made Up Stories.

'We're thrilled to continue our creative relationships with both Nicole and David [BLL executive producer] and can't wait to bring this show to life, ' he said. 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.

Added Kelley: "I loved this book".

In the mean time, fans can look forward to seeing Kidman reprise the role of Celeste on Little Lies when it returns for Season 2.

Kelley is represented by CAA and attorney Michael Gendler. Abrams' Demimonde, Jordan Peele's Lovecraft Country, True Detective, Sharp Objects, The Deuce and Here and Now, among others.
