This October Binge and Foxtel will bring Australian viewers the highly-awaited series, The Undoing, featuring Emmy, Academy Award and Golden Globe-winner Nicole Kidman (Big Little Lies) alongside Emmy nominee Hugh Grant (A Very English Scandal).
HBO today announced the six-part limited series from Emmy, Academy Award and Golden Globe-winning director Susanne Bier (The Night Manager) and the Emmy-winning creator of Big Little Lies, David E. Kelley is set to debut this October.
The psychological thriller, based on Jean Hanff Korelitz’s novel You Should Have Known, follows upper-class New York City couple, Grace (Kidman), a successful therapist, and her devoted husband, Jonathan Fraser (Grant), who are living the only lives they ever wanted for themselves. However, 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.
Joining Kidman and Grant is Edgar Ramirez (Emmy nominee for American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace and Carlos) as Detective Joe Mendoza; Ismael Cruz Cordova (Berlin Station) as Fernando Alves; Matilda De Angelis as Elena Alves; Lily Rabe (American Horror Story) as Sylvia Steinetz; Noma Dumezweni (Black Earth Rising) as Haley Fitzgerald; Noah Jupe (Honey Boy and A Quiet Place 2) as Henry Fraser, Jonathan and Grace’s precocious and artistic 12-year-old son; Sofie Gråbøl (HBO’s Gentleman Jack and Fortitude) as Catherine Stamper; and Donald Sutherland (Emmy winner for Citizen X) as Franklin Reinhardt, Grace’s father, a retired financier and loving grandfather who is tasked with protecting his family when turbulent revelations come to light.
The Undoing is executive produced by Bier, Kelley, Kidman, Per Saari, Bruna Papandrea, Stephen Garrett and Celia Costas.
