Hugh Grant's New Crime Thriller Series Looks Seriously Chilling
Let's be honest, we can never get enough of seeing Hugh Grant on screen. And we are here to announce that he is starring in a brand new TV series alongside Nicole Kidman which looks seriously chilling.
The Undoing, set to land on Sky Atlantic in May, is based on the book You Should Have Known by Jean Hanff Korelitz, and centres around the wealthy Sachs family who appear to have the perfect life.
Grace (Nicole Kidman) is a successful therapist about to publish her first book, has a devoted husband Jonathan (Hugh Grant) and her son attends an elite private school in New York City.
But overnight, everything changes; a violent death takes place in the local community, Grace's husband is missing and she starts to unravel terrible information about the person she thought she knew.
The disastrous events leave Grace wondering if she should have known better, and left with the task of creating a new life for herself and her child.
We hear Grace speaking in the trailer: "I had this idea of the perfect life ... that's all I really wanted".
It is clear from the trailer that this is far from the life Grace had imagined, and that whilst Hugh's character - a paediatric oncologist - may seem charming at first glance, he may not be as lovely as he first appears.
At the Television Critics Association winter press tour, Hugh said of his role: "First of all, hang on, you don't know from what you've seen whether I'm nasty.
"If you've seen two [episodes of the show], you know I'm not entirely as lovely a I seem in [Episode] one, but you don't know if I'm evil or not." Intriguing.

But is Nicole innocent herself? We hear others in the trailer question her, wondering what she's hiding.
And if you were thinking that the whole elite family being surrounded by a murder investigation sounds familiar, you'd be right.
It sounds very Big Little Lies -esque and that might have something to do with the fact that writer David E. Kelley is behind both series, with Nicole starring.
And whilst we still have no news on whether Big Little Lies is returning for a third season, at least we can replace it with this new intrigue-shrouded series.
Susanne Bier is also at the helm directing, so it is in safe hands given that she is an Emmy, Academy Award and Golden Globe winner known for Bird Box and The Night Manager.
Also joining the cast is Donald Sutherland, who you may remember best as President Snow from The Hunger Games, or Mr Bennet in Pride & Prejudice. We can't wait to see him in action.
Mark your diaries people, this six-part series has all the right names attached to guarantee it'll be a good'un.
The Undoing will land on Sky Atlantic in May.
