When Elena accepts a nanny job for an affluent Manhattan family, her life is transformed into a world of lies, ulterior motives, and deadly secrets in Freeform‘s “The Watchful Eye.”
“The Watchful Eye” premieres January 30. Watch the official trailer below.
“The series follows Elena Santos, a young woman with a complicated past, maneuvering her way into working as a live-in nanny for an affluent family in Manhattan. She quickly learns that everyone in the mysterious building has deadly secrets and ulterior motives. What they don’t know, however, is that Elena has some shocking secrets of her own.”
Mariel Molino stars alongside Kelly Bishop, Warren Christie, Amy Acker, Jon Ecker, Lex Lumpkin, Henry Joseph Samiri and Aliyah Royale.
“I think that the suspense, the eeriness, the cinematic aspect of the show [are Hitchcockian]. Hitchcockian thrillers are usually very cinematic; they’re full of suspense; and obviously they’re crime-driven. But I think that different to being a classic Hitchcockian thriller, there is a very empowered female at the center of this story who’s got an axe to grind,” Molino teases.
Julie Durk created “The Watchful Eye,” with Emily Fox serving as showrunner.
The series comes from Ryan Seacrest Productions and ABC Signature.
