Netflix has unveiled the first trailer for new murder mystery series The Perfect Couple, starring Nicole Kidman, ahead of its release this autumn.

Suspicions surrounding the mysterious death continue to grow, with several members of the wedding party considered suspects.

The six-episode series will premiere on the streaming service on Thursday, September 5.

"Amelia Sacks is about to marry into one of the wealthiest families in Nantucket," reads the official logline for the series.

"Her disapproving future mother-in-law, famous novelist Greer Garrison Winbury, has spared no expense in planning what promises to be the premiere wedding of the season – until a body turns up on the beach.

"As secrets come to light, the stage is set for a real-life investigation that feels plucked from the pages of one of Greer's novels. Suddenly, everyone is a suspect."

The thrilling trailer sees bride-to-be Amelia (Eve Hewson) preparing for her big day as she mingles with her groom's glamorous family.

"The key to this family is to just stay on the periphery, where it's safe," warns her future sister-in-law Abby (Dakota Fanning).

The festivities soon turn sour when a body is found on a nearby beach. As police begin their investigation, the family's captivating matriarch Greer (Kidman) is brought in for questioning.

"Is there something you want to tell me?" asks the officer, before Greer's unfazed husband Tag (Liev Schreiber) says: "This all feels a little dramatic for an accidental drowning."

As a media storm ensues, Greer can then be heard saying: "We never know what's going on in someone's mind, really. No matter how close you are."

The Perfect Couple is directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Susanne Bier, who will also executive produce alongside showrunner Jenna Lamia.
