HBO is hoping that delayed viewing of “The Undoing” grows in a way just as dizzying as “Lovecraft,” which has garnered over 10 million viewers to date for its debut. Linear numbers for “Cancel” should be available on Tuesday.
“The Undoing” is a six-part limited series starring Kidman and Grant as Grace and Jonathan Fraser, living the only life they ever wanted for themselves. Overnight, a chasm opens in their existence: a violent death and a chain of terrible revelations. Left behind in the wake of a growing disaster and very public and horrified at how she ignored her own advice, Grace must dismantle a life and create another for her child and family. Noah Jupe plays the duo’s son, while Donald Sutherland plays Grace’s wealthy father.
He sees Kidman and David E. Kelley retool after “Big Little Lies,” and acclaimed director Susanne Bier.
Kidman and Grant spoke to Variety working together for the first time, and explained how Bier was instrumental in integrating Grant.
