HBO is developing the Leïla Slimani novel The Perfect Nanny into a limited series with Maya Erskine creating, starring and writing the series that will star Nicole Kidman. Both also serve as executive producers for the project, which comes from Legendary Entertainment along with HBO.

Published in 2016, The Perfect Nanny was inspired by the real-life murder of Lucia and Leo Krim by their nanny in 2012. In the series, a seemingly perfect nanny goes to work for a couple with two young children, but her helpful personality eventually deteriorates into something sinister.

Erskine is best known for co-creating and starring in the Hulu comedy series “Pen-15” with Anna Konkle. She is currently in production on “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” at Amazon Prime Video, which she stars in opposite Donald Glover. Erskine also played Maggie in “Man Seeking Woman” on FXX, Mikki in “Betas” on Amazon Prime Video, Diane in “Insecure” on HBO and Sully in “Obi-Wan Kenobi” on Disney+, as well as Alice in the 2019 movie “Plus One.”

Kidman’s most prominent TV role was starring as Celeste in HBO’s “Big Little Lies,” “The Undoing” and “Nine Perfect Strangers.”

Leïla Slimani, who along with “The Perfect Nanny” has written the books “Adèle,” “In the Country of Others,” “Sex and Lies” and “Watch Us Dance.”
