Kidman will also executive produce with Per Saari for Blossom Films with Bruna Papandrea for Made Up Stories.

"Y'all, we're starting next Friday on Big Little Lies 2, I can't believe it", Witherspoon confirmed while appearing on Late Night With Seth Meyers last Thursday.

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

The show is based on Jean Hanff Korelitz's novel "You Should Have Known" and follows the story of therapist Grace Sachs, whose world is rocked by a shock death and her husband going missing.

Hollywood star Nicole Kidman and "Big Little Lies" executive producer David E Kelley are reuniting for new HBO project "The Undoing". A search for a director is underway.

The Undoing comes shortly after Hulu edged HBO - among other high-profile outlets - for rights to Reese Witherspoon starrer Little Fires Everywhere. "A character-driven psychological thriller, I'm excited about the adaptation and thrilled to be able to do it with Nicole and HBO", Kelley said.

David E. Kelley, creator of Boston Legal, Chicago Hope, The Practice, and Ally McBeal, wrote and executive-produced Big Little Lies, along with Kidman and Papandrea. The Undoing represents a reunion for most of the creative team behind HBO awards darling Big Little Lies. Kidman and Kelley's previous collaboration for the premium channel earned her numerous awards past year, but it also proved a big enough hit that the powers that be at HBO deigned it necessary to order a second season, one that will not only reunite the main cast that also includes Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Zoe Kravitz, Shailene Woodley, and Adam Scott, but it will also bring perennial Academy Award nominee Meryl Streep on board as the mother of Alexander SkarsgÄrd's Perry Wright.

The series won Kidman the Golden Globe award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television in January.

Kelley is repped by CAA and attorney Michael Gendler.
