Kelley and exec producer Bruna Papandrea.nicole_kidman_and_keith_urban_grievingBased on Jean Hanff Korelitz’s book You Should Have Known, the psychological thriller revolves around Grace Sachs (Kidman), who is living the only life she ever wanted for herself. She’s a successful therapist on the brink of publishing her first book, has a devoted husband and young son who attends an elite private school in New York City. Weeks before her book is published, 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.Kelley, as he did with Big Little Lies, will pen the script, serve as showrunner and exec produce through his David E. Kelley Productions. Kidman will exec produce via her Blossom Films banner, with the company’s Per Saari also attached. Papandrea will exec produce via her Made Up Stories banner. A search for a director is under way.“We’re thrilled to continue our creative relationships with both Nicole and David and can’t wait to bring this show to life,” HBO programming president Casey Bloys said.
