HBO dropped a trailer for the upcoming limited series “The Undoing,” which stars Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant. The series is currently scheduled to premiere on HBO in May, and the limited series is based on the novel “You Should Have Known,” by Jean Hanff Korelitz. If you prefer to read the original work before seeing the adaptation, you can find the novel right here on Amazon.
The network’s official description reads, “Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant as Grace and Jonathan Fraser, who are living the only lives they ever wanted for themselves. Overnight a chasm opens in their lives: a violent death and a chain of terrible revelations. Left behind in the wake of a spreading and very public disaster and horrified by the ways in which she has failed to heed her own advice, Grace must dismantle one life and create another for her child (Noah Jupe) and her family.”
Susanne Bier directed the series for HBO, which was created and written for television by David E. Kelley, who also serves as showrunner. Susanne Bier, David E. Kelley, Nicole Kidman, Per Saari, Bruna Papandrea, Stephen Garrett, and Celia Costas served as executive producers on the project.
