Given that it bought The Woman In The Window from Disney and then pushed it out relatively quietly, it’s almost odd to see Netflix putting a spotlight back on the lone-woman-convinced-of-murder thriller genre with a new spoof version. But here we are with Kristen Bell, who swears she saw a killing in The Woman In The House Across The Street From The Girl In The Window, which has its first teaser online, filled with winks at many of the genre tropes.
Rachel Ramras, Hugh Davidson and Larry Dorf have cooked up the series, which finds Bell as Anna (no, not the one from Frozen… probably) every day is the same. She sits with her wine, staring out the window, watching life go by without her. But when a handsome neighbor (Tom Riley) and his adorable daughter (Samsara Yett) move in across the street, Anna starts to see a light at the end of the tunnel. That is until she witnesses a gruesome murder… Or did she?
Michael Ealy, Mary Holland, Shelley Hennig, Cameron Britton, Christina Anthony and Benjamin Levy Aguilar also co-star in this eight-episode series, which is due to launch on Netflix on 28 January.
