Nicole Kidman has another television series in her sights and this time, for Amazon.
After huge success as Celeste Wright in Big Little Lies, the Australian actor has signed on to star as one of two leads in an adaptation of Janelle Brown’s forthcoming novel Pretty Things.
According to Variety, the streaming service won the rights to the series, after a “highly competitive bidding war”.
Kidman will produce the show under Blossom Films, her production company.
Pretty Things is being released in bookstores in April, and “centres around two brilliant, damaged women who try to survive the greatest game of deceit and destruction they will ever play.”
“When a reluctant grifter befriends a wealthy “influencer” on the shores of Lake Tahoe, her ultimate con devolves into a raw, treacherous game of long-awaited payback.”
While there is no word on who she will play, it certainly sounds like the recipe for a perfect and gritty TV series.
Handmaid’s Tale director Reed Morano has been approached to direct and also serve as executive producer alongside executive producer, Per Saari from Blossom Films.
Kidman was set to appear opposite Hugh Grant (The Gentleman) in a TV series called The Undoing, however, due to the global pandemic, it has been pushed back until the end of the year.
