Kelley will executive produce and write the scripts that focus on Grace Sachs (Kidman), a successful therapist who is about to publish her first book when disaster strikes someone dies, her husband goes missing, and her perfect life with her son is turned upside down.
"David has created another propulsive series with a fascinating, complicated female role at its center. I'm excited and honoured to continue collaborating with HBO and David E Kelly," said Kidman in a statement.
A search for a director for the miniseries is underway.
Kidman and Kelley, as well as Reese Witherspoon, are also returning to HBO for a second season of "Big Little Lies".
