Netflix has decided to do something a bit different for its marketing campaign. To promote the upcoming series, THE WATCHER, we are introduced to Karen Calhoun (Jennifer Coolidge). She has a home to show us, and she’ll ensure we know the ins and outs before purchasing our dream home.


“I’m Karen Calhoun from Darren Dunn Realty, and I can’t wait to sell you this dream home!

657 Boulevard is a luxurious single family residence located in an elite New Jersey neighborhood that I personally rank as one of the best places to raise a family. The neighborhood value? High. School Quality? 9/10. Privacy? Pretty okay! I don’t think you should worry…

Interested in viewing this once-in-a-lifetime house? Call me, Karen Calhoun, for a tour. This home won’t stay on the market for long, so cash in those savings and start living your dream today!”


In THE WATCHER, Dean (Bobby Cannavale) and Nora Brannock (Naomi Watts) just purchased their dream home in the idyllic suburb of Westfield, New Jersey, but after putting all of their savings into closing the deal they soon realize the neighborhood is less than welcoming. There’s a kooky older woman named Pearl (Mia Farrow) and her brother Jasper (Terry Kinney), who sneaks into the Brannock’s house and hides in their dumbwaiter. There’s Karen (Jennifer Coolidge), the realtor and an old acquaintance of Nora’s, who makes them feel like they don’t really belong, and nosy neighbors Mitch (Richard Kind) and Mo (Margo Martindale), who don’t seem to understand property lines.

Their icy welcome quickly turns into a full-blown living hell when ominous letters from someone calling themself “The Watcher” start arriving, terrorizing the Brannocks to their breaking point as the neighborhood’s sinister secrets come spilling out. Based on the true story of the infamous “Watcher” house in New Jersey.

THE WATCHER stars Naomi Watts, Bobby Cannavale, Jennifer Coolidge, Mia Farrow, Margo Martindale, Terry Kinney, Joe Mantello, Richard Kind, Noma Dumezweni, Christopher McDonald, Michael Nouri, Isabel Gravitt, Henry Hunter Hall, and Luke David Blumm.

The series is created by Ryan Murphy & Ian Brennan.

Executive producing are Ryan Murphy, Ian Brennan, Alexis Martin Woodall, Eric Kovtun, Bryan Unkeless, Eric Newman, Paris Barclay, Naomi Watts, Ariel Schulman, Henry Joost, Scoop Wasserstein

THE WATCHER will be released this fall on Netflix. Stay tuned on an official release date.
