Nicole Kidman’s wellness director offers her clients some strange methods to unwind in the full-length trailer for Hulu’s Nine Perfect Strangers (premiering Wednesday, Aug. 18).
The limited series — which is based on Big Little Lies author Liane Moriarty’s book of the same name — takes place at a swanky health and wellness resort where nine frazzled city dwellers “try to get on a path to a better way of living,” according to the official synopsis. Watching over them is Kidman’s Masha, “a woman on a mission to reinvigorate their tired minds and bodies.”
Good Morning America was first to air the two-and-a-half minute spot Thursday, which shows Masha’s clients — played by the likes of Melissa McCarthy (Mike & Molly), Michael Shannon (Boardwalk Empire), Luke Evans (The Alienist), Bobby Cannavale (Homecoming), Regina Hall (Black Monday) and Samara Weaving (SMILF) — as they lie in grave-sized holes they’ve dug for themselves… presumably to decompress, not to be buried alive. (It’s no wonder McCarthy’s character asks, “Is Masha bats–t, or is she the real deal?”)
Rounding out the ensemble of familiar faces are Tiffany Boone (Hunters), Melvin Gregg (American Vandal), Manny Jacinto (The Good Place) and Grace Van Patten (Maniac).
In addition to Nine Perfect Strangers, the streamer’s summer slate includes FX on Hulu’s Reservation Dogs (premiering Monday, Aug. 9); Only Murders In the Building (premiering Tuesday, Aug. 31); Season 2 of Wu-Tang: An America Saga (premiering Wednesday, Sept. 8); and FX on Hulu’s Y: The Last Man (premiering Monday, Sept. 13).
