Sunday TV: Another Nicole Kidman Drama

It’s practically a genre of TV now: The glossy lives of rich women who also fret about a murder, while usually involving Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon or David E. Kelly. What began with “Big Little Lies” and continued with “Little Fires Everywhere,” returns in force in the new “The Undoing” (HBO, 9 p.m.), (which they could have at least called “Little Undoing”).

It stars Kidman, looking great as an upper East Side therapist with a beautiful home. No Reese this time, but Hugh Grant as her husband adds some extra Hollywood gloss. And Kelly, who wrote it, keeps the pace going even though we’re so often put off by the characters, we care just a little less about what’s going on. But because HBO: nudity!

The presidential candidates and their wives traditionally sit down with “60 Minutes” (Fox, 7 p.m.). But the fact that one stormed out petulantly may make this one more interesting. 

A finale comes for the limited series “Flesh and Blood” (PBS, 9 p.m., check local listings). 

“The Good Lord Bird” (Showtime, 9 p.m.) travels to Canada for some fund-raising and meet Harriet Tubman. 

A pandemic and impending wildfires loom as season 10 begins for “Alaska: The Last Frontier” (Discovery, 8 p.m.).
