Nicole Kidman is going back into the TV business with Big Little Lies author Liane Moriarty starring in the upcoming adaptation of Nine Perfect Strangers for the streaming service Hulu.
The series is set in a health resort and follows the complex relationships between nine strangers attending a retreat. Nicole will assume the character of "Masha" the facilities enigmatic (and slightly deranged) director, described as a woman, "on a mission to reinvigorate their tired minds and bodies."
“I’m so very happy and thrilled to once again be working with Nicole, Per and Bruna," said Moriarty told The Hollywood Reporter."They are such talented, passionate people and I have no doubt that whatever they do with my Nine Perfect Strangers, it will be brilliant."
"I think we all feel broken and we would all love to go to a place where there is a magic cure that makes us feel and provides a short cut to wellness - which is actually a made-up word," Samantha Strauss, an Australian screenwriter signed on to the project, said of the novel at the inaugural State of Escape Creative Creatures Lunch, in partnership with InStyle Australia. "I think what Lianne does so well is she writes people with an enormous open heart. She’s seen the worst of people and the best of people at the same moment in all of her books. She has a lot of hope and she looks at our flaws but she does it with an open heart and a big spirit. To me, that’s what it is."
