Hugh Grant Joins Nicole Kidman in HBO’s “The Undoing”

Hugh Grant recently starred in mini-series A Very English Scandal, and he’s already gearing up for his TV comeback. The English actor just landed the role alongside Nicole Kidman in the upcoming HBO series The Undoing.

This promising project centers on a successful New York therapist Grace Sachs, whose life falls apart in the wake of the publication of her first book. Grant will play the husband of the main character, whose disappearance kicks off a series of terrible revelations that threaten to ruin the life of their seemingly-perfect family.

The Undoing is based on the novel You Should Have Known by Jean Hanff Korelitz. David E. Kelley, who served as showrunner on Kidman’s previous HBO project Big Little Lies will return to the same role this time around.

Susanne Bier, who received an Emmy for her work on mini-series The Night Manager, will be in charge of directing this intriguing series. She’ll also serve as executive producer alongside Kidman.
