Jennifer Coolidge is a woman of many talents, including, apparently, selling houses. Netflix introduced us to her latest character, real estate agent Karen Calhoun, in a clip on Friday promoting Ryan Murphy’s new series “The Watcher.”
In the video, Coolidge shows off 657 Boulevard, the infamous New York house from the new limited series. “The Watcher” is based on a story written for New York Magazine and follows a family who are finally threatened to leave their newly purchased mansion after a mysterious stalker begins mailing them letters.
Coolidge gives a tour of the property in painstaking detail, like any luxury real estate agent would, highlighting the home’s best features, including the fifth bathroom, which was put in “just for fun.”
“There’s nothing like this in the world,” he says as he walks around one of the rooms. And, of course, she had to show off the fully intact forklift, which plays a prominent role in the series, according to Netflix.
And if you thought that’s where the part ended, you’d be wrong. The house is also listed on Zillow, with a value of $3.2 million. “The house of your dreams awaits you!” the listing says. You can see the full tour of the house above.
In addition to Coolidge, “The Watcher” stars Naomi Watts, Bobby Cannavale, Mia Farrow, Margo Martindale, Terry Kinney, Joe Mantello, Richard Kind, Noma Dumezweni, Christopher McDonald, Michael Nouri, Isabel Gravitt, Henry Hunter Hall and Luke David. . Blumm.
