The official teaser of HBO’s upcoming mini-series The Undoing has been released. The Nicole Kidman-led series is directed by Emmy, Academy Award and Golden Globe-winning director Susanne Bier. The miniseries is written and produced by Big Little Lies creator David E Kelley.
HBO’s miniseries The Undoing teaser shows a sneak peek at the psychological thriller, which follows the story of a therapist, played by Nicole Kidman and her husband Jonathan, played by Hugh grant. The therapist, who is about to publish her first book, faces a misfortune as the husband goes missing. A violent death follows and a series of secrets are exposed.
The series looks pretty bleak, much similar to Netflix’s German show Dark. Foreboding music, frustrated looking characters, Dark colour palette, all the yelling and so on gives the vide that watching it won’t exactly be a cheery experience.
The mini-series is adapted from the 2014 novel ‘You Should Have Known’ by Jean Hanff Korelitz. It also stars Donald Sutherland, Noah Jupe, Edgar Ramirez, Lily Rabe, Ismael Cruz Cordova, Matilda DeAngeli and Noma Dumezweni.
The official synopsis of The Undoing reads, “The limited series The Undoing, coming this Fall, stars Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant as Grace and Jonathan Fraser, who are living the only lives they ever wanted for themselves. 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.
