By: Jariah Anderson
“The Watcher” is an American mystery thriller television series created by Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan for Netflix. It premiered on October 13, 2022. The series follows a married couple who, after moving into their dream home 657 Boulevard in Westfield, New Jersey, are harassed by creepy letters signed by a stalker who goes by the pseudonym, “The Watcher”. This series is also based on a true story that was published in New York Magazine in November 2018.
In this magazine, it tells the story of a house on 657 Boulevard, a Westfield, New Jersey that was stalked by a mysterious stranger. Derek Broaddus and his wife Maria found their dream house in 2014, but they quickly started receiving bizarre, threatening letters after moving in. The writer of the letters was clearly very familiar with the home and the lives of the Broadduses, including personal details that made it clear he or she was watching the house. And as you watch the show, it makes you wonder about who could’ve been watching this family’s home.
