Honestly, if someone would have said 10 years ago that Nicole Kidman would go from being an A-list film actress to become one of the most prolific TV actresses working today, you’d probably laugh. But this is the age of Peak TV and Kidman has clearly found her niche as the leading lady in prestige drama limited series. And that isn’t stopping anytime soon, as she has already lined up yet another series, titled “Hope.”
According to THR, Kidman is continuing her newfound dominance of TV with a new series coming to Amazon Prime Video titled “Hope.” The show, which Kidman will also produce in addition to star in, is a TV adaptation of a recent Norwegian feature of the same name. The series will follow a similar story to the acclaimed feature and follow 12 days in the lives of a married couple and their six children around Christmas time as their marriage implodes. The series is yet another project for Amazon and Kidman, who signed a first-look deal with the streaming service recently.
As mentioned, Kidman has found a comfortable spot atop the hierarchy of prestige drama acting in recent years. Ever since she starred in “Big Little Lies,” which earned her rave reviews and a massive fanbase, she’s lined up more and more TV projects, including the recent HBO series, “The Undoing.” In addition to those projects, she’s currently in production on a series titled “The Expatriate” for Amazon, and will also appear in “Nine Perfect Strangers” on Hulu.
Oh and don’t think she’s given up on film, though. She’s also set to be one of the stars of Robert Eggers’ upcoming film, “The Northman.” And it was just announced that she’ll star opposite Javier Bardem in a new Lucille Ball biopic that is written and directed by Aaron Sorkin. Basically, Kidman has one of the most impressive schedules in the entire industry.
There’s no word on when we might see “Hope” arrive on Amazon. Hope…fully (get it?), it’s soon, as we’re excited to see what Kidman has up her sleeve next.
