Netflix trailer “The Watcher” starring Jennifer Coolidge
Jennifer Coolidge opens The Observer Netflix trailer with a full three-minute commercial for a magnificent house. It has four bedrooms and five bathrooms, a breathtaking swimming pool, a veranda and a two-car garage. It looks like the perfect dream house. However, she does tease horror bits in the long commercial.
“This house has a very intact dumbwaiter,” says Coolidge as Karen Calhoun. Look at this. This is how the maids carried food and linen without being seen or heard. And, you know, I’m telling you, you could fit a person in here.

The freight elevator can carry a deceased person, and neighbors are certainly watching the two underlying messages Karen sends to viewers.
“You can actually look outside and see everything that’s going on in town,” Karen continues in the master bedroom. “But you want to keep the curtains closed. There’s a lot of weird neighbors and stuff there, you know. You don’t want them looking at you, that’s for sure.
What is “The Watcher” about on Netflix? Is this a true story?
The Observer on Netflix is based on The haunting of a dream house by Reeves Wiedeman.
Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan created the series to tell the true story of a married couple who moved into their dream home in New Jersey. However, shortly after moving in, they received disturbing letters from a stalker named The Observer.
The limited run retained the original house number and address – 657 Boulevard in Westfield, New Jersey. The couple eventually left the house and spoke to the media about the threatening letters.
Who is in the cast of “The Watcher” on Netflix?
In addition to Jennifer Coolidge as real estate agent Karen, the cast of The Watcher includes Bobby Cannavale and Naomi Watts as new owners Dean and Nora Brannock. Mia Farrow joins the cast as a “crazy older woman named Pearl.” Terry Kinney plays Pearl’s brother, who sneaks into the house and hides in the dumbwaiter. Richard Kind and Margo Martindale describe nosy neighbors Mitch and Mo, “who don’t seem to understand property lines.” It’s unclear who sent the letters, but it looks like it could be one of the odd neighbors surrounding 657 Boulevard.
Netflix also includes Joe Mantello, Noma Dumezweni, Christopher McDonald, Michael Nouri, Isabel Gravitt, Henry Hunter Hall and Luke David Blumm in The Observer cast. However, they did not release any information about which actors the actors might play.
