Hugh Grant & Nicole Kidman Lead HBO’s New Murder Thriller ‘The Undoing’

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right? The top dogs at HBO clearly know the formula for success, and that’s to just keep on doing what they do best – gritty crime thrillers. Enter the network’s latest murder-mystery saga, The Undoing, based on the novel You Should Have Known┬áby┬áJean Hanff Korelitz.

The one-off limited series will see Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant take centre stage with Susanne Bier in the director’s chair (The Night Manager).

The Undoing follows the successful life of a therapist (Kidman) which begins to slowly unravel as a violent death rocks the family and a missing husband (Grant) throws her life into a deadly spiral.



The series also features acting royalty Donald Sutherland and will debut on HBO in the US on October 25th, with a yet-to-be-confirmed Australian release on Foxtel soon after.
