"We're thrilled to continue our creative relationships with both Nicole and David", said Casey Bloys, president, HBO programming "and can't wait to bring this show to life". The Undoing, starring Kidman and written by David E. Kelley, is a murder mystery set among the world of New York's private school parents.

The story follows Grace Sachs who is living the only life she ever wanted for herself. Further, Kelly will serve as the executive producer, writer, and showrunner for the project. Papandrea will exec produce via her Made Up Stories banner.
