My family has been interested in 657 Boulevard for many years, and as it gets close to turning 110, I’ve been given the responsibility of keeping an eye out for its second coming. In the 1920s, my grandfather kept watch over the house, and in the 1960s, it was my father. Now is my moment. Are you familiar with the house’s past? Do you know what is included within 657 Boulevard’s walls? What brought you here? I will investigate.”

It was created by Ian Brennan and Ryan Murphy. Naomi Watts portrays Nora Brannock in this program. Bobby Cannavale plays Dean Brannock.

The Watcher Episode 1 Preview

Since this show is based on a true story, this seven-episode miniseries follows the Brannock family as they move into their dream house. This urban family has been looking for a home to raise their children in for a while, and seeing the beautiful neighborhood, the gracious, if a bit standoff-ish neighbors,s and the overall safety of the neighborhood,d they decide that this is the perfect place to settle down in.

Once the deal is finalized, and the move is underway, they receive mysterious, threatening letters. These sinister letters addressed by the mysterious ‘Watcher’ imply that there is something wrong with the house they have moved into, and they are being watched, and their movement are being tracked. Anyone and everyone are a suspect, from their neighbors on the street to strangers walking past.

Things come to a head when the intriguing ‘Watcher’ starts mentioning their children in the letters, how old they are, and what they like, implying that he is still watching everything the family does.

Thus begins one family’s terrifying battle against an omnipotent force that seems to catalog their every move inside their dream house regardless of whatever precautions they may take. Is the Watcher a single person? Are their neighbors conspiring against them? How do they fight off a gaze where behind every dark corner looms a pair of eyes? This true crime thriller has us hooked on these questions and more.

We know the original family simply left the house and, in 2019, sold it at a great loss, but what happens in the show remains to be seen. To this day, the mystery of the Watcher House and the identity of the Watcher have never been found out, solved, or revealed
