Undoing, The: Nicole Kidman’s HBO Limited Series, Directed by Susanne Bier

Nicole Kidman’s upcoming HBO limited series The Undoing will be directed by Danish Oscar winner, Susanne Bier.

Bier, a 2016 Emmy winner for directing AMC’s miniseries The Night Manager, will helm all episodes of The Undoing. She’ll also be an executive producer of the project, which is scheduled to begin production in 2019.

The Undoing reteams Kidman with Big Little Lies writer-executive producer David E. Kelley and exec producer Bruna Papandrea.

Kidman plays Grace Sachs, a successful New York therapist living the life she has always wanted — until it’s shattered by a brutal death. Now, with her husband missing and a chain of terrible revelations left behind, she has to dismantle one life and build a new one for herself and her son.

Kelley is adapting Jean Hanff Korelitz’s novel You Should Have Known for the series. Kidman, her Blossom Films partner Per Saari, Kelley, Papandrea (via her company, Made Up Stories) and Bier are all executive producers.

Kidman wrapped production on season two of Big Little Lies in August; HBO has said the show will return in 2019.
