We whole-heartedly approve of the recent trend of film stars making incredible TV dramas, particularly in the case of Nicole Kidman.

Firstly she gave us two series of the brilliant Big Little Lies, alongside Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern and Meryl Streep.

Then came her Golden Globe-nominated performance in unmissable lockdown thriller The Undoing, opposite Hugh Grant.

Now Kidman has announced another TV project, which will undoubtedly be equally addictive.

Kidman is set to star in new Apple TV anthology series, Roar, written by the creators of axed Netflix show, GLOW. The eight-part anthology series is based on a book of short stories by popular author Cecilia Ahern, and each half hour episode will be told from a new female character’s point of view. The impressive cast list also includes Alison Brie, Cynthia Erivo and Merritt Weaver.

It seems that anthology series are all the rage right now, with Amazon Prime Video announcing a glittering cast list for the second series of Modern Love, as well as promoting its current dystopian series Soulmates.

Roar isn’t the only new TV series Kidman has signed up to – she has filmed another TV adaptation of a Liane Moriarty book (we’re not complaining), the author behind Big Little Lies and The Undoing.

Nine Perfect Strangers tells the story of a group of characters attending a spa retreat run by a mysterious woman. Needless to say, it all goes horribly wrong. The series, which is expected to air later this year, also stars Melissa McCarthy and Luke Evans and we can’t wait to binge watch it in one sitting.
