Continuing a period of grabbing work at a rate that would make Phoenix Buchanan seethe with undisguised envy, Hugh Grant has landed a role opposite Nicole Kidman in new HBO miniseries The Undoing.

Kidman and her Big Little Lies collaborator David E. Kelley are here adapting Jean Hanff Korelitz' book into a six-episode series. The story follows Grace Sachs (Kidman) in the wake of a spreading and very public disaster. 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.

Grant is on to play Jonathan Sachs, Grace's seemingly devoted husband and doting father whose past undergoes scrutiny when he suddenly disappears, leading to a chain of terrible revelations for his wife.

Susanne Bier, who had such success in TV with The Night Manager is aboard to direct all six episodes of the series. And the news comes on the heels of Grant securing a role in Guy Ritchie's Toff Guys.
