Uma Thurman to star in Netflix supernatural drama series Chambers
Oscar nominee Uma Thurman (Pulp Fiction, Imposters) has joined the supernatural drama series Chambers for Netflix, the streaming service has confirmed. The series is produced by Oscar-winning writer Stephen Gaghan (Traffic, Syriana) and Super Deluxe.
Chambers centers on a young heart attack survivor who becomes consumed by the mystery surrounding the heart that saved her life. However, the closer she gets to uncovering the truth about her donor’s sudden death, the more she starts taking on the characteristics of the deceased — some of which are troublingly sinister.
Thurman is set to play Nancy, the mother of the heart donor who forges a hesitant relationship with the young recipient only to find her daughter may not be as dead as she thought.
Chambers was created and written by Leah Rachel who will showrun alongside Akela Cooper. The series landed a 10-episode straight-to-series-order by Netflix and will be executive produced by Gaghan via Super Emotional alongside Rachel and Cooper as well as Wolfgang Hammer and Winnie Kemp of Super Deluxe. Alfonso Gomez-Rejon will direct the pilot and is also executive producing.
Thurman’s other series credits include NBC’s Smash (which earned her an Emmy nomination), Bravo’s Imposters, and the NBC miniseries The Slap.
