Nicole Kidman is undoubtedly the hardest-working woman in Hollywood. Not only has her most recent TV Series The Undoing just been released on BINGE, but she has also just announced yet another major project which she will star and executive produce with Amazon Prime.
Based on the award-winning play by Andrew Bovell (Lantana, The Secret River, When the Rain Stops Falling), her next series, Things I Know To Be True, is about the resilience of an enduring marriage and the evolving nature of a family’s love.
The show will centre on Bob and Fran Price (played by Kidman), who watch their adult children make unexpected decisions which change the course of their lives. At the end of it all, they are left asking: Was it worth it? Who are we, now that the children have gone? Over the course of one year, the four adult Price children struggle to establish their identities and deal with personal crises.
The original play is a funny and honest account of family life in the Australian suburbs and we’re expecting the same of the series.
“I’ll never forget the experience I had watching Andrew’s play in Sydney, having one of those transcendent theatre experiences,” Kidman said in a statement.
“Andrew’s play is exquisite and his scripts for the series are just as good. With Amazon’s belief, Jen Salke’s guidance, and an extraordinary producing team, we have big hopes for what this can be.”
Playwright Andrew Bovell is thrilled for his play to be getting the on-screen treatment.
“This is a story about family, that thing you spend your life trying to escape from only to yearn for what you’ve lost if you ever do,” he said.
“I’m thrilled that an actor of Nicole Kidman’s calibre leads the series in the role of Fran Price. As a mother and a woman, she is complicated, difficult and utterly compelling. I’m also thrilled that a company of Amazon Studios’ significance has shown such confidence in the story and will take it to a global audience.”
The series will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide and more casting announcements are set to follow.
