The series star and executive producer of HBO’s latest high-profile limited series, The Undoing, Nicole Kidman, sings the sweet lyrics of “Dream a Little Dream of Me” over images of what appears to be a nostalgic view of her character as a girl.
But as the show’s title suggests, all is not as gossamer as it seems in this opening sequence.
The Undoing is written for television and executive produced by David E. Kelley, who previously teamed up with Kidman on HBO’s Big Little Lies. The Undoing has a similar moneyed feel, showcasing Kidman’s gorgeous, jewel-toned clothes and the decorated-to-the-nines Manhattan brownstone her therapist character, Grace, shares with her oncologist husband played by Hugh Grant.
While everything looks perfect from the outside, things are starting to unravel for Grace after someone she knows is murdered.
The Undoing airs Sunday nights on HBO.
