A new series is coming to Netflix in January and the full title is The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window. Is it a Rear Window, or is it a spoof of The Woman in the Window starring Amy Adams? Here’s the trailer:

The official plot tells us more:

Centres around heartbroken Anna (Bell), for whom every day is the same. She sits with her wine, staring out the window, watching life go by without her. But when a handsome neighbour moves 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?

It stars Kristen Bell, Tom Riley, Michael Ealy and Appy Pratt. The listing on IMDb has Bell listed for only 2 episodes, but then, the entire series is still only in the production stage.

Kristen Bell - The Woman in the House

The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window maybe be funnier than the trailer makes out. It is produced by Gloria Sanchez Productions, known for Barb And Star Go To Vista Del Mar, Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga and Booksmart.

The series looks like a throwback to the thrillers with a female lead who is an unreliable narrator, self medicates, drinks, and no one believes.  You could probably name a hundred 70s or 80s slasher movies that follow that theme. Not many of them are darkly comical.

Bell seems to have a thing about long movie titles at the moment, following this up with a movie entitled The People We Hate at the Wedding which is in production at the moment.

The series The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window will be streaming on Netflix on 28th January 2022.
