Melissa McCarthy to co-star and co-produce Hulu's Nine Perfect Strangers with Nicole Kidman
Based on Liane Moriarty's 2018 novel of the same name, the show recently scored a straight to series order from the streaming platform
Melissa McCarthy has joined the cast of Hulu's upcoming series, Nine Perfect Strangers, headlined by Nicole Kidman.
Based on Liane Moriarty's 2018 novel of the same name, the show recently scored a straight to series order from the streaming platform. The story follows a group of city dwellers who attend a 10-day retreat at a health-and-wellness resort and don't know what is about to hit them.
Kidman, who is set to serve as the executive producer of Nine Perfect Strangers, will reportedly portray Masha, the woman who runs the remote resort. The show will reunite the actor with her Big Little Lies showrunner David E Kelley and executive producer Bruna Papandrea.
Just like Kidman, McCarthy too will serve as the executive producer of the series, which features her as Francis, one of the titular strangers.
John Henry Butterworth is penning the series with Kelley, and will also serve as co-showrunner.
