The eight part Netflix series, ‘The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window,’ is a satirical take on ‘The Woman in the Window’ starring Amy Adams, Gary Oldman, and Julianne Moore. The thriller satire will be starring Kristen Bell sporting a trendy bob and rarely unaccompanied by an overflowing glass of wine. 

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Rachel Ramras defends the series’ intention. ”I don’t think we are making fun of any of these books, or the movie version of these books,” says Ramras. “We are having fun with the genre, as opposed to making fun of the genre.” Bell and Ramras clarify that the mouth-full title series is a thriller but with tonal variations that are innovative and different from anything audiences have seen in the past.

“It was like nothing I’d ever heard before, and it made me laugh… It was so outside the box and absurd that I knew I had to be involved,” says Bell. “I hope people are very uncomfortable when they watch.” 

‘The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window’ – So, What is the Series About?

For further clarification, the series’ synopsis reads as: “For heartbroken Anna (Kristen Bell), 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 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? The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window premieres January 28, only on Netflix.”

It will be exciting to see how ‘The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window’ captures that addictive element of voyeurism for viewers who enjoy true crime narratives and perfectly chaotic protagonists. Kristen Bell will be playing Anna, a lonely artist who has given up on her passions following the death of her daughter Elizabeth and the separation from her husband, Douglas. The artist’s creative inclinations lead to elaborate hallucinations that are undoubtedly generated by her endless supply of red wine. Anna suffers from ombrophobia which is a fear of rain.

The sum of Anna’s perception is defined by the day her daughter died. With maintaining that comedic tone, the circumstances are wildly outrageous. It was raining on the day Elizabeth died and her father who worked as a forensic psychiatrist brought her to the FBI to speak to a serial killer named Massacre Mike. For some unimaginable reason, Douglas left her alone with Massacre Mike and from there, viewers can put two and two together. Truly, shocking. 

While of course staying on theme of absurd hilarity, the trailer captures undertones of the dark thrillers of ‘Gone Girl’ and ‘The Girl on the Train.’ The new series intends to encapsulate the genre of true crime by providing a rare and unusual perspective that provides very necessary humor. 

Similar to the ‘The Woman in the Window,’ Anna relies on substances to tackle her present day realities. Suddenly, a very handsome and young widower named Neil, played by Tom Riley, moves in across the street from Anna along with his daughter Emma who forms an immediate connection with our disastrous heroine. Anna’s inner-circle has consistently kept close to her and is always there when Anna is on the brink of a meltdown. However, her sanity is called into question when Anna claims to have witness the murder of Neil’s girlfriend from her window while she was looking through her living-room window. Nosy-bodies unite as audiences follow Anna as she is determined to unveil the truth of what she’s witnessed.

Sound Familiar?

Despite the very similar plot of ‘The Woman in the Window,’ the new series will be drastically different in terms of being completely absurd but yet, unpredictable. It seemingly calls into question the unhealthy habits of heartbreak that sometimes lead to predictable self-medicating with copious amounts of red wine. The series will also star Cameron Britton, Christina Anthony, Benjamin Levy Aguilar, and Mary Holland.

In an interview with TODAY, Kristen Bell describes the show as a “satirical psychological drama.” “It’s based on all of these psychological novels that were written for women, by women,” she said. “The formula’s always the same. She drinks too much. She might be mixing it with pills. She thinks she sees a murder. No one believes her. There’s so much formula to it that we thought it was about time that somebody poked fun at it. So, we’re hoping that the title will tip you to the fact that we are making fun of the genre the entire time. And I think, I didn’t know I’d been waiting to do my best sort of bad acting my whole career for this show.”

What to Expect and When to Watch

“I feel like I’m falling apart,” Anna says in the trailer. “Like a house of cards. Like a sandcastle and the tide is coming.” Followed by endless sips of massively large glass of red wine mixed with pills while remaining seemingly sober despite the hallucinations that plague her. By the end of the trailer, Anna is second guessing herself and questioning whether or not she actually witnessed a shocking murder across the street. With everyone questioning her claims, Anna falls down a rabbit hole of discovering what she believes she saw and the truth.
