Nicole Kidman for The Undoing

A search for a director is under way. The Emmy-winning series' star and executive producer Nicole Kidman is re-teaming with writer David E. Kelley for "The Undoing".

"David has created another propulsive series with a fascinating, complicated female role at its center", Kidman said in a statement.

Added Kelley: "I loved this book".

The series will be executive produced by Papandrea, under her Made Up Stories banner, and Kidman under the Blossom Films banner, with the company's Per Saari. In it, Kidman will play New York City-based therapist and author Grace Sachs whose life implodes after the mysterious disappearance of her husband.

The project, which is based on the Jean Hanff Korelitz book You Should Have Known, will reunite the 50-year-old Australian actress with Big Little Lies executive producer David E. Kelley, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Just before her first book is about to be published, someone close to her dies and her husband goes AWOL. Blossom is now developing an adaptation of the books The Silent Wife, Reconstructing Amelia, Janice Lee's best-seller The Expatriates, and the off-Broadway vampire play Cuddles.

Papandrea's Made Up Stories produced in its first-year Jennifer Kent's The Nightingale, Abe Forsythe's Little Monsters (starring Lupita Nyong'o and Josh Gad) and the TNT pilot Deadlier Than The Male written by Harriet Warner and directed by Caméra d'Or victor Houda Benyamina.

The Undoing comes shortly after Hulu announced it is going straight-to-series with Little Fires Everywhere, which will star Reese Witherspoon.

HBO is re-teaming three of the driving forces behind "Big Little Lies" for the its next big miniseries. Kidman has now been working on Big Little Lies for which she won both an Emmy and a Golden Globes.

Kelley is repped by CAA and Michael Gendler; Blossom Films is with CAA and Alan Werthheimer; Papandrea is with WME.
