Announced during the Netflix TUDUM events on September 24, Ryan Murphy’s new series will be available on the platform on Thursday, October 13th. A true paranoid thriller, The Watcher is based on true events.

Since the beginning of his contract with Netflix, Ryan Murphy has been pretty busy. A few weeks after the release of Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, he comes back to make us shiver for Halloween with The Watcher, a scary home invasion.

When the Brannock family moves into a luxury home in a residential neighborhood,the dream comes true. But the couple (Naomi Watts and Bobby Cannavale) and their two children are soon disenchanted when mysterious letters start to arrive. Threats of death, personal informations revealed by the anonymous author… They understand that they are being watched : someone is scrutinizing their every move. The Brannocks’ suspicions turn to their neighbors : which one of them turns out to be the dreaded Watcher?

For this project, the father of small-screen horror looks at the true story of the Broaddus couple, who became the recipients of chilling missives shortly after moving to New Jersey in 2014. The residents of the mansion sold the rights to Netflix at the time, as the press had taken an interest in the story of 657 Boulevard, right after the fact.

The 7-episode series will be available on Netflix on October 13 and will celebrate the return of Jennifer Coolidge (resurrected by The White Lotus) and Mia Farrow, 54 years after Rosemary’s Baby.
