Amazon has signed on Nicole Kidman for their series adaptation of the stage play Things I Know to be True
Oscar and Emmy winner Nicole Kidman is set to not only star in, but also executive produce Things I Know to be True under her Blossom Films company. The project is coming from Amazon Studios, in partnership with NBCUniversal International Studios’, Matchbox Pictures, Blossom Films, and Jan Chapman Films.
Things I Know to be True is an award winning stage play by playwright, Andrew Bovell. It is is about the resilience of an enduring marriage and the evolving nature of a family’s love, as Bob and Fran Price watch their adult children make unexpected decisions that change the course of their lives.
In her announcement of the project Kidman said “I’ll never forget the experience I had watching Andrew’s play in Sydney, having one of those transcendent theater experiences. Andrew’s play is exquisite and his scripts for the series are just as good. With Amazon’s belief, Jen Salke’s guidance, and an extraordinary producing team, we have big hopes for what this can be.”
Along with writing, Bovell will serve as an executive producer of the adaptation alongside Kidman and Per Saari for Blossom Films.
“This is a story about family, that thing you spend your life trying to escape from only to yearn for what you’ve lost if you ever do,” said Bovell. “I’m thrilled that an actor of Nicole Kidman’s caliber leads the series in the role of Fran Price. As a mother and a woman she is complicated, difficult and utterly compelling. I’m also thrilled that a company of Amazon Studios’ significance has shown such confidence in the story and will take it to a global audience.”
Currently there is no premiere date for Things I Know to be True but it will be on Amazon Prime Video.
