Earlier this month, Netflix unveiled the first look at their new drama series Gypsy
Oscar Nominee Naomi Watts (The Book of Henry, Mullholland Drive) leads the show as a therapist who starts to become obsessed with her patient’s lives and in doing so, her own personal life begins to unravel with her husband (Crudup) and her family. Billy Crudup (Alien: Covenant), Sophie Cookson (Kingsman: The Golden Circle), Lucy Boynton (Sing Street), Karl Glusman (The Neon Demon) and Brenda Vaccaro co-star while Fifty Shades of Grey director Sam Taylor-Johnson directs the firs two episodes.
With this and many others, Netflix is set to enjoy its biggest year yet – with the return of House of Cards and Orange is the New Black in the next month, as well as new shows and films such as Glow (starring Alison Brie), War Machine (starring Brad Pitt) and, later this year, Bright, the new cop thriller starring Will Smith and directed by David Ayer.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Gypsy is a ten-part psychological thriller that follows Jean Halloway (Naomi Watts), a Manhattan therapist with a seemingly picturesque life who begins to develop intimate and illicit relationships with the people in her patients’ lives. As the borders of Jean’s professional life and personal fantasies become blurred, she descends into a world where the forces of desire and reality are disastrously at odds.
In addition to Watts, Gypsy also stars Billy Crudup (Spotlight) as Jean’s husband Michael Halloway, Sophie Cookson (Kingsman) as Sydney, Lucy Boynton (Murder on the Orient Express) as Jean’s patient Allison, and Karl Glusman (Nocturnal Animals) and Jean’s patient Sam.
Gypsy is written by Hollywood newcomer, Lisa Rubin. The series is directed by Fifty Shades Of Grey’s Sam Taylor Johnson as well as Victoria Mahoney and Coky Giedroyc. It is produced for Netflix by Universal Television and executive produced by Lisa Rubin, Naomi Watts, Sean Jablonski, and Liza Chasin.
Gypsy is to debut on Netflix on June 30th. Here’s the trailer,
