“American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace” star Edgar Ramirez and “American Horror Story” alum Lily Rabe have joined Nicole Kidman’s upcoming HBO limited series, “The Undoing,” TheWrap has learned.
The cast of the David E. Kelley-created show includes Kidman (whom Kelley has collaborated with on “Big Little Lies”), Hugh Grant, Donald Sutherland and Noah Jupe.
Here’s the official logline for “The Undoing”: Grace Sachs (Nicole Kidman) is living the only life she ever wanted for herself. She’s a successful therapist, has a devoted husband (Hugh Grant) and young son who attends an elite private school in New York City. Overnight a chasm opens in her life: a violent death, a missing husband, and, in the place of a man Grace thought she knew, only a chain of terrible revelations. Left behind in the wake of a spreading and very public disaster, and horrified by the ways in which she has failed to heed her own advice, Grace must dismantle one life and create another for her child and herself.
Ramirez will play Detective Joe Mendoza and Rabe has been cast as Sylvia Steinetz.
“The Night Manager’s” Susanne Bier is attached to executive produce and direct all six episodes of the series. Kelley is writer, showrunner and executive producing via his David E. Kelley Productions banner.
Kidman, who is re-teaming with Kelley after two seasons of “Big Little Lies,” and Per Saari will executive produce under Blossom Films, alongside Bruna Papandrea for Made Up Stories. Celia Costas is also executive producing.
Ramirez is represented by CAA, Impression Entertainment and Hirsch Wallerstein Hayum Matlof and Fishman LLP. Rabe is represented by WME, Anonymous Content and Gang, Tyre, Ramer, Brown & Passman.
