‘The Woman In The House Across The Street From The Girl In The Window’ Trailer: Kristen Bell Stars In Netflix’s Satire Of Mystery Thrillers

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: A beautiful, lonely woman is holed up in her home, refusing to leave. She takes an interest in her neighbors across the way, and one day while looking out the window she sees a violent crime committed. When she tries to tell the police, they don’t believe her. Nobody does. Sound like any one of a dozen movies adapted from books over the last couple of years? Well, The Woman in the House Across the Street From the Girl in the Window is here to at least have a little fun with this overused premise.

As you can tell by the title, this is meant to be a satire of the thriller genre that has been cribbing from Rear Window for decades. Kristen Bell stars as the obsessed woman, joined by Michael Ealy, Tom Riley, Mary Holland, Cameron Britton, Samsara Yett, Christina Anthony, and Benjamin Levy Aguilar.

The eight-episode miniseries is exec-produced by Bell and Will Ferrell, the latter having done his fair share of genre send-ups, including The Spoils of Babylon and A Deadly Adoption.

Netflix debuts The Woman in the House Across The Street From the Girl in the Window on January 28th.
