Nine Perfect Strangers Heads to Amazon Prime Video


Nine Perfect Strangers, based on the novel by Liane Moriarty (Big Little Lies), is set to premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in the U.K., other countries outside the U.S. and China later this year.

Starring Nicole Kidman and Melissa McCarthy, the series is set at a boutique health-and-wellness resort, where nine stressed city dwellers try to get on a path to a better way of living. The resort’s director Masha (Kidman) is a woman on a mission to reinvigorate their tired minds and bodies—and these nine strangers have no idea what is about to hit them.

Nine Perfect Strangers is executive produced by the team behind Big Little Lies, which won eight Emmy Awards and four Golden Globe Awards, and Golden Globe-nominated The Undoing, Nicole Kidman’s Blossom Films, Bruna Papandrea’s Made Up Stories and David E Kelley.

Kidman said: “I’m so proud of what we were able to pull together this past year, bringing Nine Perfect Strangers filming to Australia during the global Covid-19 pandemic. Partnering with Melissa McCarthy, working with David Kelley, Liane Moriarty and my producing cohorts again, joining forces with Hulu in the U.S. and now this, a global distribution deal with my home studio of Amazon. The stars have aligned and I am thrilled!”

“What a dream team! Nicole, Bruna and David all have proven track records producing world-class, complex and addictive stories with strong women front and center,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios. “I’m excited for Amazon Prime Video customers to see this incredible new series. We’re delighted to be working with Made Up Stories, Blossom Films and Endeavor Content to bring Nine Perfect Strangers to our Prime members around the world I know they are going to love it “

Bruna Papandrea, executive producer from Made Up Stories; Per Saari, executive producer from Blossom Films; and David E. Kelley, executive producer, added: “Liane Moriarty’s storytelling is as engaging as it is surprising, and we are pleased to bring these eclectic strangers from Nine Perfect Strangers to life. After the team’s success working together on Big Little Lies and The Undoing, Nine Perfect Strangers has become one of this year’s most anticipated series, with an arguably unmatched presentation of top talent both in front and behind the camera. We can’t wait for Amazon’s customers to fall in love with the extraordinary Nine Perfect Strangers.”

“I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to work on a series of this caliber, with such a fantastic team,” said Prentiss Fraser, executive VP of international TV sales at Endeavor Content. “Nine Perfect Strangers is one of the year’s most anticipated series, with an arguably unmatched presentation of top talent both in front of and behind the camera. The team at Endeavor Content love this book, and the series adaptation will most certainly not disappoint fans when released later this year. It’s incredible to continue working with Amazon, and am excited to roll out this show internationally.”
