A search for a director is under way.

It comes after it was revealed that "Big Little Lies" is set to get a second series. The Emmy victor will reteam with "Big Little Lies" scribe David E. Kelley for the new HBO limited series "The Undoing", the network announced.

'David has created another propulsive series with a fascinating, complicated female role as its centre, ' she said.

"I loved this book", added Kelley in a statement. "I'm excited and honored to continue collaborating with HBO and David E Kelly".

Actress Reese Witherspoon said at the time: "It gives us the opportunity to delve deeper into the lives of these intriguing and intricate Monterey families and bring more of their stories back to the audience who embraced and championed them".

Kidman, Kelley, Papanadrea, and HBO found great success this past year with their breakout hit Big Little Lies which won eight Emmy Awards and four Golden Globes.

The Undoing follows Grace Sachs (Kidman), a successful therapist on the brink of publishing her first book. Kidman will again star and executive produce with Per Saari for Blossom Films while Kelley will write and executive produce. Blossom's titles now in development include an adaptation of the literary sleeper hit The Silent Wife, an adaptation of best-seller Reconstructing Amelia, an adaptation of Janice Lee's best-seller The Expatriates, and an adaptation of off-Broadway vampire hit Cuddles.

The pay cabler has ordered "The Undoing" from Nicole Kidman, David E. Kelley, and Bruna Papandrea. Check! Much like her Big Little Lies costar Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman is now developing one of your favorite recent books.

For Kidman's part, her Blossom Films banner is also teaming with Witherspoon and Papandrea to adapt Big Little Lies author Laine Moriarty's new novel, Truly Madly Guilty into a limited series.

Kelley is represented by CAA and attorney Michael Gendler.
