What could go wrong in one of the richest dream families on Nantucket? Netflix has released the trailer for “The Perfect Couple,” an adaptation of Elin Hilderbrand’s crime novel of the same name.

Set to the music of Franki Valli’s “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You,” the trailer shows novelist Greer Garrison Winbury (Nicole Kidman) and her husband Tag Winbury (Liev Schrieber), the heads of a seemingly perfect family. Amelia Sacks (Eve Hewson) will marry into their wealthy clan.

Greer (Kidman) is the mother of Amelia’s fiancé Benji Winbury (Billy Howle) and has covered the costs of their wedding, which was supposed to be the highlight of the season. But it seems the family has some secrets.

“The key to this family is staying on the edge,” Abby Winbury (Dakota Fanning), Benji’s sister, tells Amelia. “Where it’s safe.”

But before the couple’s wedding, a body turns up on the beach. The investigation into the death of the person, who apparently drowned accidentally, seems to have come straight out of one of Greer’s novels.

“The White Lotus” star Meghann Fahy, Ishaan Khattar, Jack Reynor, Sam Nivola, Mia Isaac, Donna Lynne Champlin and Isabelle Adjani complete the cast of the mystery series.

“Bird Box” director Susanne Bier directs and executive produces the six-episode season. Showrunner Jenna Lamia is an executive producer along with Hilderbrand, Shawn Levy and Josh Barry for 21 Laps Entertainment, Gail Berman and Hend Baghdady for The Jackal Group, and Nicole Kidman and Per Saari for Blossom Films.

The show hits the streamer on September 5. Check out the trailer below.
