Plot Synopsis

Based on Jean Hanff Korelitz's 2014 novel, "You Should Have Known," THE UNDOING is a limited series that follows Grace and Jonathan Fraser, who are living the only lives they ever wanted for themselves. Overnight, a chasm opens in their lives: a violent death and a chain of terrible revelations. Left behind in the wake of a spreading and very public disaster and horrified by the ways in which she has failed to heed her own advice, Grace must dismantle one life and create another for her child and her family. Meanwhile, her father -- retired financier and loving grandfather Franklin Reinhardt -- is tasked with protecting his family when turbulent revelations come to light. Episodes include:
