Noma Dumezweni Has Been Tapped for a New HBO Series, 'The Undoing'

The Swazi-British actor will star alongside Nicole Kidman in a six-episode series based on Jean Hanff Korelitz's book, "You Should Have Known."

We'll be able to catch Noma Dumezweni starring in a limited HBO series very soon.

The Swazi-British actor is due to work alongside Nicole Kidman, Hugh Grant and Donald Sutherland in The Undoing, a six-episode series based on Jean Hanff Korelitz's book, You Should Have Known, Deadline reports.


The series was penned by David E. Kelley and directed by Susanne Bier.

Here's the synopsis:

'The Undoing' centers on Grace Sachs (Kidman), who is living the only life she ever wanted for herself. She's a successful therapist, has a devoted husband (Grant) and young son (Noah Jupe) who attends an elite private school in New York City. Overnight a chasm opens in her life: a violent death, a missing husband, and, in the place of a man Grace thought she knew, only a chain of terrible revelations. Left behind in the wake of a spreading and very public disaster, and horrified by the ways in which she has failed to heed her own advice, Grace must dismantle one life and create another for her child and herself.

Dumezweni will play the character Haley Gibson, as she comes off the heels of significant roles in Chiwetel Ejiofor's The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, Netflix's Black Earth Rising and Mary Poppins Returns. The two-time Olivier Award winner recently wrapped playing Hermione Granger in Broadway's Harry Potter and the Cursed Child—a Tony Award-winning production.
