Uma Thurman Joins Netflix Supernatural Drama ‘Chambers’
Uma Thurman is hitting the sci-fi genre hard
Netflix has put together another supernatural drama series, and this one will star Uma Thurman. Going by the name “Chambers,” the series will be a scripted one-hour drama; with the first season consisting of 10 episodes.
According to Netflix, Uma Thurman will be playing Nancy, the mother of a heart donor who forges a hesitant relationship with the young recipient only to find out her daughter may not be as dead as she thought. The video-streaming service teases the series adding:
“A young heart attack survivor 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.”
Serving as Executive Producer, Co-Showrunner, Writer, and Creator of the series is Leah Rachel. Akela Cooper will also serve as Executive Producer and Co-Showrunner. Thurman’s deal was brokered by The Artist’s Partnership, Jonathan Sanders & Co., and Untitled Entertainment.
Thurman will next be seen in Down a Dark Hall directed by Rodrigo Cortés, and Tim Hill’s “The War with Grandpa” opposite Robert De Niro.
Thurman’s recent television and film credits include an arc on Bravo’s “Imposters,” NBC’s miniseries “The Slap,” created by Jon Robin Baitz, and Lars Von Trier’s NYMPHOMANIC: Vol. 1.
Thurman is probably best known for her portrayal of “Mia Wallace” in Quentin Tarantino’s popular film “Pulp Fiction”. back in 1995, she received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the cult classic. Thurman continued to work with the director for many years and garnered Golden Globe Award nominations for her role of “The Bride” in his highly successful “Kill Bill” film franchise.
Thurman earned a Golden Globe Award for HYSTERICAL BLINDNESS, which she produced and starred in. She received her first Emmy nomination for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Dramatic Series for her arc on NBC’s series SMASH.
