“I used to believe that people determine their own lives, yet there’s one force more powerful than free will: our desires,” says Naomi Watts in a newly released trailer for the Netflix series “Gypsy,” which premieres on June 30. Watch the trailer above.
Watts plays Jean Holloway, a therapist who becomes dangerously and intimately involved in her patients’ lives. This is her first regular series role in 20 years, which is somewhat ironic since her breakthrough film, David Lynch‘s “Mulholland Drive” (2001), was originally conceived as a television pilot. That film launched a career for Watts on the big screen that has included two Oscar nominations for Best Actress (“21 Grams” in 2003, “The Impossible” in 2012) and a supporting role in Best Picture winner “Birdman” (2014), among many other credits and plaudits.
Billy Crudup co-stars as Watts’s husband in this dark, psychosexual thriller, which is created by Lisa Rubin as her first major writing and producing credit. Also on-board as an executive producer as well as a director is Sam Taylor-Johnson, best known for making “Fifty Shades of Grey” (2015) as well as the John Lennon biopic “Nowhere Boy” (2009).
What do you think of the new trailer for “Gypsy”? Could it bring Watts and Crudup Emmys in 2018? Find out when the series premieres at the end of the month on the streaming service.
