The Undoing, considering the creative team behind it and the inclusion of Nicole Kidman, already looks like a victor.

Nicole Kidman and David E. Kelley are on a roll.

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

'I'm excited and honoured to continue collaborating with HBO and David E Kelley'.

The memorial, named "Monument For Our Kids", included a pair of shoes for each child killed by gun violence in the United States. One of the parents in attendance Tuesday was Tom Mauser, whose son was killed in the Columbine school massacre.

Kelley, as he did with Big Little Lies, will pen the script, serve as showrunner and exec produce through his David E. Kelley Productions.

A search for a director is underway, HBO said. "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 in a statement.

Actress Reese Witherspoon said at the time: "It gives us the opportunity to delve deeper into the lives of these intriguing and intricate Monterey families and bring more of their stories back to the audience who embraced and championed them". Kidman again executive produces with Per Saari through their Blossom Films alongside another BLL executive producer, Bruna Papandrea, vie Made Up Stories. 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. In 2003, Kidman won an Academy Award®, Golden Globe Award and BAFTA Award for her portrayal of Virginia Woolf in Stephen Daldry's The Hours. She will reprise her role of Celeste Wright in Big Little Lies next year.

Kelley is repped by CAA and attorney Michael Gendler.
