Nicole Kidman confirmed to star in Hulu's Nine Perfect Strangers as leading character

Aussie star Nicole Kidman is signed on for a brand new exciting show that sounds like a must-see and we could not be more keen.

Nicole Kidman has seen her collaboration with David E. Kelley and best-selling Australian novelist Liane Moriarty on Big Little Lies prove to be a big success, spurring a series beyond the book's story.
And she's looking to keep the success train chugging, setting up a deal with Lies producer Bruna Papandrea and Kelley to work on another of Moriarty's novels Nine Perfect Strangers.

The only element changing this time is the channel, as the team is swapping HBO for US streaming service Hulu.
Kelley and John Henry Butterworth are adapting and looking to run the show, which adapts the Moriarty book that hit shelves in September last year.
Set at a boutique health-and-wellness resort that promises healing and transformation to nine stressed city dwellers, the series will star Kidman as the resort's director Masha, a woman on a mission to reinvigorate their tired minds and bodies.

For now it looks like Kidman is choosing to stick with TV shows and the choice is a good one based on the projects she has been attaching herself to. Kidman, Papandrea, Kelley and Moriarty together are providing the good content for Hulu.

And HBO need not feel all that left out; the cable channel, after all, has Kidman and Kelley sticking around not just for the second series of Lies but also making fellow miniseries The Undoing.
