Susanne Bier to direct HBO’s Nicole Kidman-starring limited series The Undoing


Susanne Bier has agreed to direct HBO’s 6-episode limited series The Undoing, starring Nicole Kidman.

The Undoing is an adaptation of the book You Should Have Known by Hanff Korelitz. It follows Nicole Kidman’s character Grace Sachs, who is seemingly living an ideal life. She’s a successful therapist in New York City who is about to publish her first book and has a devoted husband and young son. Her perfect life starts to unravel, though, following a violent death and her husband going missing. With her husband gone, Grace learns terrible things about the man she thought she knew. In the wake of the devastating and public disaster, Grace is astonished to realize she hasn’t managed to take her own advice, leading her to reconstruct a new life for her and her son.

Ever since her Emmy Award-winning work on the British limited series The Night Manager, Bier has been an in-demand television director. Recently, she’d been devoting her time to her upcoming movie, Bird Box, but she became available for The Undoing. The show marks her first time helming an American TV series.

Bier will also executive produce The Undoing, alongside Kidman and David E. Kelley (Big Little Lies) who also serves as writer and showrunner.

Bier is an accomplished director with numerous movie credits to her name including Love is All You Need, Things We Lost in the Fire, and Serena. Her work on The Night Manager was especially lauded and made many networks take notice. As a result, her involvement in The Undoing will add extra interest for critics and audiences.
