‘The Undoing’ to premiere on October 26 exclusively on HBO

PHILIPPINES, 13 OCTOBER 2020 – From Emmy®, Academy Award and Golden Globe-winning director Susanne Bier (“The Night Manager”) and the Emmy®-winning creator of “Big Little Lies,” David E. Kelley and starring Emmy® and Academy Award and Golden Globe-winner Nicole Kidman (HBO’s “Big Little Lies”) and Emmy® nominee Hugh Grant (“A Very English Scandal”), comes the six-part limited series The Undoing, debuting same time as the U.S. on Monday, 26 October at 9am exclusively on HBO GO and HBO, with a same day encore at 10pm on HBO.

Based on Jean Hanff Korelitz’s novel “You Should Have Known”, the limited series follows Grace (Kidman) and Jonathan Fraser (Grant), who are living the only lives they ever wanted for themselves. Overnight, a chasm opens in their lives: a violent death and a chain of terrible revelations.

The Undoing also stars Edgar Ramirez (Emmy® nominee for “American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace” and “Carlos”) as Detective Joe Mendoza; Noah Jupe (“Honey Boy” and “A Quiet Place 2”) as Henry Fraser, Jonathan and Grace’s precocious and artistic 12-year-old son; Lily Rabe (“American Horror Story”) as Sylvia Steinetz; Noma Dumezweni (“Black Earth Rising”) as Haley Fitzgerald; Sofie Gråbøl (HBO’s “Gentleman Jack,” “Fortitude”) as Catherine Stamper; Matilda De Angelis as Elena Alves; Ismael Cruz Córdova (“Berlin Station”) as Fernando Alves; and Donald Sutherland (Emmy® winner for “Citizen X”) as Franklin Reinhardt, Grace’s father, a retired financier and loving grandfather who is tasked with protecting his family when turbulent revelations come to light.
