Another award-winning movie star is set to topline a television series. Two-time Oscar nominee Naomi Watts is headed to Netflix for "Gypsy," a new one-hour psychological thriller.
Watts will also serve as an executive producer on the series, where she’ll play Jean Holloway, a therapist who has serious issues with boundaries and engages in inappropriate behavior with her patients.
"Gypsy" will premiere on the streaming platform in 2017.
Watts is likely to join Brie Larson ("Room") in the hotly anticipated adaptation of Jeannette Walls’ bestselling memoir "The Glass Castle." "The Ring" star will also appear in Gia Coppola’s indie drama "The Secret Life of the Lonely Doll" alongside Jessica Lange. You can currently catch her in theaters in the latest "Divergent" chapter, "Allegiant," and the dramedy "Demolition."
