Hulu is putting together quite the cast for their upcoming series Nine Perfect Strangers. Now it is being reported that Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids) has joined the series alongside Nicole Kidman (Aquaman).
According to Deadline, McCarthy will also serve as an executive producer. David E. Kelley and John-Henry Butterworth will serve as co-showrunners and Samantha Strauss joins as a co-writer. Nicole Kidman and Emmy Award-winning producer Bruna Papandrea will adapt the latest book by New York Times best-selling author Liane Moriarty, Nine Perfect Strangers.
Nine Perfect Strangers was a hit that spent 13 weeks on The New York Times Best Seller list.
The series takes place at a boutique health-and-wellness resort that promises healing and transformation as nine stressed city dwellers try to get on a path to a better way of living. Watching over them during this ten-day retreat is the resort’s director Masha (played by Kidman), a woman on a mission to reinvigorate their tired minds and bodies. However, these nine “perfect” strangers have no idea what is about to hit them.
