Netflix has released the teaser trailer for (are you ready?) The Woman in the House Across the Street From the Girl in the Window, which stars and is executive produced by Kristen Bell. You can watch the teaser by scrolling down and read on to learn more!
The Woman in the House Across the Street From the Girl in the Window will be available on the streaming service on January 28, 2022. The series consists of eight 30-minute episodes.
In the series, for heartbroken Anna (Kristen Bell), every day is the same. She sits with her wine, staring out the window, watching life go by without her.
But when a handsome neighbor (Tom Riley) and his adorable daughter (Samsara Yett) move 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?
From creators Rachel Ramras, Hugh Davidson and Larry Dorf, the series is a darkly comedic, wine-soaked, satirical slant on the psychological thriller that will have you guessing who, what, where, why and how in the hell?! until the very end.
Michael Ealy, Mary Holland, Shelley Hennig, Cameron Britton, Christina Anthony and Benjamin Levy Aguilar also co-star opposite Bell, who executive produces the limited series alongside Will Ferrell, Jessica Elbaum and Brittney Segal for Gloria Sanchez Productions.

One word to describe the series?
One non-spoilery tease about the show?
Kristen: There’s a big juicy cameo right at the end.
Rachel: Amazing cameo.
Larry: New Hampshire in the fall.
Hugh: Makes grief and depression fun.
Favorite book and/or film from “The Girl/The Woman” genre?
Rachel: I think my favorite actually is probably the craziest one: the book “The Woman in Cabin 10.”
Larry: I like the book “The Woman in the Window.”
Are you more of a gone girl or a girl on a train? Or woman in the window? Or a sharp object?!
Kristen: I’ve never found a way to reuse my children’s teeth and I thought that little girl was pretty darn creative.
Rachel: Oh, I’m definitely the woman in the window. I am a voyeur. I am in people’s business. I am an Instagram sleuth.
Larry: I’m a woman in the window also. I’m a voyeur. I stare. I do that even when I’m not looking out a window. Just in general, I stare at people and I imagine that they can’t see me staring at them, but they can.
Hugh: Yeah, we’re all women in the window. The truth is, when we are writing, we stare out that window, and there’s a house right across the street. And we can stare right into them.
Drink of choice when sleuthing/spying on, say, a neighbor?
Kristen: Matcha. Keeps me buzzing.
Rachel: I’ve moved into martinis. Larry and I drink martinis.
Larry: What happens is, we’ve been writing together for a long time, so we end the day with a proper cocktail hour. So Hugh makes martinis.
Hugh: I don’t like martinis. I don’t know what they’re supposed to taste like but for some reason, I make the martinis and these two dummies say they’re good.
Biggest inspiration in bringing this show to life?
Kristen: Tight rope walkers. I had to balance on the thinnest line between sincerity and jokes.
Personal special skill set that would come in handy while solving a crime?
Kristen: I can read lips.
Rachel: For me, it’s definitely that I can find anyone. I’m telling you, anyone on Instagram. I am a detective. I really am.
Larry: I assume that a murder is more complicated than it’s shown to be.
This or That — TWITH Edition: Chicken casserole or overflowing glass of wine?
Kristen: Glass of wine.
Hugh: I like both. I’d say both.
Walk in the rain or true crime binge?
Kristen: True crime doc from the comfort of my bed.
Rachel: Oh, definitely true crime series binge for me.
Larry: I like to walk in the rain.
Hugh: A walk in the rain.
Creepy attic, creepier cemetery or creepiest ventriloquist dummy?
Kristen: Anything BUT a ventriloquist dummy. Immediately no.
Rachel: I would say attic. I love a creepy attic!
Larry: I would say attic, too.
Most iconic twist from this always jaw-dropping genre?
Kristen: The one at the end of this show, but I can’t tell you what it is. I’ve just never seen anything like it.
