Watch: Go Behind The Scenes Of This Gripping New Netflix Series

New?Netflix thriller Gypsy has been one of the most enjoyable female-led TV shows made quite a long time. We get a tense, slow-building series following a married mental health therapist named Jean Holloway, played by the exceptional Naomi Watts, who is a woman content to live parts of her life as an alter-ego, Diane. She frequently crosses?the line personally and professionally; seeking illicit rendezvous through the lives of her patients and an affair with rock chick Sidney, despite her seemingly ideal marriage and seemingly picture-perfect life.

She’s obsessed with her patients; going to extreme lengths to become intertwined in their lives. ?And we root for her. To get a thrill, even to do the wrong thing, as the series progresses. So, what happens when a woman decides to openly explore the darker side of her desires? That’s the subject Watts, creator Lisa Rubin and director Sam-Taylor Johnson decide to take on in the ten-part series. Watts’s character behaves as an atypical male character might – she seeks to act out her fantasies and desires, so much so that they began to overwhelm every aspect of her life – but the gaze is flipped, refreshingly to that of a female one and in the video below, the cast and crew discuss the allure of the project and what is was like to try and shatter myths around female stereotypes.

Watch it below:
