Naomi Watts In TV Series, ‘The Watcher’
A family does not feel secure in their house until a stalker sends them threatening letters, as seen in Ryan Murphy’s new Netflix series The Watcher. This occured to Derek and Maria Broaddus after they bought an idyllic New Jersey mansion for $1.4 million, and they fled their home soon after the letters started coming.
Although Naomi Watts and Bobby Cannavale add Hollywood esthetic to the story, their filmic portrayal of the family deviates from reality in several ways. These differences include a change of the family surname as well as fictionalized appearances for both the house 657 Boulevard and its occupants.
A YouTube video posted by David Realty Group, the company that sold the home for $959,000 in 2019. The kitchen and living room shown in The Watcher are much more luxurious than what is actually offered in real life. Additionally, the exterior dark brown wood framing contrasts sharply with sage siding seen on the actual building.
The Watcher is now streaming on Netflix. You can see a real-life tour of the actual home that the series is based on in the video above, followed by Coolidge’s tour of the in-series home below that.
