One good turn certainly deserves another, as Nicole Kidman is set to reunite with Big Little Lies screenwriter David E. Kelley for another HBO limited series, this one titled The Undoing. Kidman will executive produce with her Blossom Films partner Per Saari and star in the adaptation of Jean Hanff Korelitz's novel You Should Have Known. Bruna Papandrea is tied as executive producer as well.

Kidman will star as Grace Sachs, a therapist who is weeks away from publishing her first book when she's rocked by tragedies including her husband's disappearance and a gruesome death. 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 bad revelations.

"David has created another propulsive series with a fascinating, complicated female role at its center", said Kidman.

Kidman and Kelley, as well as Reese Witherspoon, are also returning to HBO for a second season of "Big Little Lies".

"We're thrilled to continue our creative relationships with both Nicole and David", said Casey Bloys, president, HBO programming "and can't wait to bring this show to life".
