Nicole Kidman, David E. Kelley Team Up for

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".

Mark Hughes 'favourite for Southampton job'
Hovering just one spot above the relegation zone Southampton are in danger of losing the top-flight status they acquired six seasons ago.

Kelley added, "I loved this book, a character-driven psychological thriller".

The Undoing comes shortly after Hulu edged HBO - among other high-profile outlets - for rights to Reese Witherspoon starrer Little Fires Everywhere. They've now set up a new miniseries called The Undoing at Lies' home channel HBO. This time, though, Kidman will serve as the primary lead, while Kelley will take on the role of showrunner, in addition to his writing duties.

She's the Oscar-winning Hollywood actresses who's been universally praised for her role of Celeste Wright in Big Little Lies.

The series won Kidman the Golden Globe award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television in January.
