Channel 4 has acquired the eight-episode Hulu Original limited series Nine Perfect Strangers, which will launch on the channel on Wednesday 28 September at 10pm and be available for catch up viewing on All 4.

Nine Perfect Strangers

Based on Liane Moriarty’s New York Times bestselling book, Nine Perfect Strangers is set at a boutique resort which promises healing and transformation to nine stressed city dwellers. 

Watching over them during the ten-day retreat is resort director Masha (Nicole 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.

Directed by David E. Kelley (Big Little Lies, The Undoing), the series was created by Kelley together with Bruna Papandrea’s Made Up Stories, Nicole Kidman’s Blossom Films, and Endeavor Content. 

The star-studded cast of strangers are played by Melissa McCarthy, Michael Shannon, Luke Evans, Bobby Cannavale, Regina Hall, Samara Weaving, Melvin Gregg, Asher Keddie and Grace Van Patten.

A suspense-filled drama filled with lighter comedic moments, the series explores how far people will go to face their personal demons and get well, shining a light on the world of health and wellness and our constant quest for self-improvement.

Jonathan Levine directs all eight episodes of the series and serves as executive producer alongside Papandrea, Steve Hutensky and Jodi Matterson for Made Up Stories, Nicole Kidman and Per Saari for Blossom Films, Liane Moriarty, showrunner David E. Kelley, John Henry Butterworth, Molly Allen, Samantha Strauss and Melissa McCarthy. 

The series is co-written by David E. Kelley, John Henry Butterworth and Samantha Strauss.
