DON’T MISS: “The Undoing” – Nicole Kidman and writer David E. Kelley, part of the team that brought us “Big Little Lies,” serve up another instantly addictive six-part mystery thriller largely rooted in marriage, wealth, deceit and the blind spots that can develop in relationships over time. Kidman delivers a breathtakingly gripping performance as an affluent New York therapist who leads a seemingly carefree life. Her husband (Hugh Grant) is a renowned pediatric oncologist, and their teen son attends an exclusive private school. But a violent death upends their lives, leading to scandal and dark secrets becoming exposed. Under Susanne Bier’s taut direction, the twists keep coming, and nothing is quite what it seems. (9 p.m. Sunday, HBO).
