Nicole Kidman has a new project in the works, set to debut on Hulu in 2020. The video streaming platform greenlit a straight-to-series order for “Nine Perfect Strangers,” with David E. Kelley and John Henry Butterworth set as showrunners and writers.
The series is an adaptation of the latest book by New York Times best-selling author Liane Moriarty. “Nine Perfect Strangers” was an instant hit that spent 13 weeks on The New York Times Best Seller list. If you are someone that likes to read the original work before watching the adaptation, you can find Nine Perfect Strangers right here on Amazon.
The series takes place at a boutique health-and-wellness resort that promises healing and transformation as nine stressed city dwellers try to get on a path to a better way of living. Watching over them during this ten-day retreat is the resort’s director Masha (played by Kidman), a woman on a mission to reinvigorate their tired minds and bodies. However, these nine “perfect” strangers have no idea what is about to hit them.
“Nine Perfect Strangers” will reunite Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning actress Nicole Kidman, Emmy Award-winning producer and writer David E. Kelley, author Liane Moriarty, and Emmy Award-winning producers Bruna Papandrea and Per Saari. Hulu stated that “Nine Perfect Strangers” is expected to debut in late 2020 and joins the company’s growing slate of upcoming scripted Hulu Originals, including “Little Fires Everywhere,” “Wu-Tang: An American Saga,” “Looking For Alaska,” “Dollface,” “Reprisal” and “The Great.”
The series is the latest project from Blossom Films, Made Up Stories and Endeavor Content. Blossom Films, created by Nicole Kidman and Per Saari, brought you season one of “Big Little Lies” on HBO. That series earned eight Emmy nominations and received five wins, including Best Actress for Kidman and Best Miniseries or Television Film. Made Up Stories was founded by Papandrea, the award-winning producer of “Big Little Lies” and feature films “Wild,” Gone Girl,” “Warm Bodies,” and “Milk.” The company’s upcoming TV slate includes Damien Chazelle’s musical drama “The Eddy,” hit series “Killing Eve,” and “See” starring Jason Momoa.
Executive producers for Nine Perfect Strangers include Bruna Papandrea, Steve Hutensky and Casey Haver for Made Up Stories, Nicole Kidman and Per Saari for Blossom Films, Liane Moriarty, David E. Kelley, and John Henry Butterworth.
