"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".

Kelley will executive produce and write the scripts that focus on Grace Sachs (Kidman), a successful therapist who is about to publish her first book when disaster strikes? someone dies, her husband goes missing, and her ideal life with her son is turned upside down. She lives in New York City with her devoted husband and young son. 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's Blossom Films partner Per Saari will also exec produce. A search for a director is under way.

The Undoing reunites Kidman, Kelley, and Papandrea, who worked together on HBO's Emmy-winning Big Little Lies. The adaptation was written by David E. Kelley. All three will also be executive producers on The Undoing.
