Just coming off of a much-deserved vacation in Australia with husband Keith Urban and their two daughters, Sunday and Faith, the star already has her next project lined up. 

It appears the new year will be as busy as 2022 was for the couple, with the singer continuing his tour – Keith was on the road for the better part of 2022 – and Nicole having had several movies and series premiere.

Variety reports that the actress has joined the cast of a new Paramount+ series titled Lioness, which has Taylor Sheridan behind it. 

Her involvement in the cast is quite meant to be, as she had already been attached as an executive producer since the show was initially announced, via her own production company, Blossom Films. 

Lioness is based on a real-life CIA program, and per IMDB, the plot reads: "A young Marine is recruited by the CIA to befriend the daughter of a terrorist group in order to bring down the organization from within."

Variety's exclusive report says: "Kidman will play Kaitlyn Meade, described as 'the CIA's Senior Supervisor who has had a long career of playing the politics game. 

"'She must juggle the trappings of being a woman in the high-ranking intelligence community, a wife that longs for the attention she herself can’t even give and a mentor to someone veering suspiciously close to the same rocky road she’s found herself on.'"
