TVLine Items: The Undoing Premiere, Buttigieg to Host Kimmel and More

Big Little Lies star Nicole Kidman will be back on HBO with her new limited series The Undoing on Sunday, May 10, as revealed in the above trailer.

The dramatic thriller — adapted by BLL writer/EP David E. Kelley from Jean Hanff Korelitz’s novel You Should Have Known — stars Kidman and Hugh Grant as Grace and Jonathan Fraser, a Manhattan power couple whose idyllic life is rocked by “a violent death and a chain of terrible revelations,” per the official logline. “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 and her family.”

The cast also includes Edgar Ramirez (The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story), Lily Rabe (American Horror Story) and Donald Sutherland (Trust, Dirty Sexy Money). Susanne Bier (The Night Manager) directed all six episodes.
