Netflix announced Oscar nominee Uma Thurman (Pulp Fiction) has committed to a starring role in Chambers. Described as a supernatural drama, Chambers season one will consist of 10 one-hour episodes.

Netflix hasn’t announced the target release date for the series which was created by Leah Rachel. Rachel and Akela Cooper (Grimm, The 100, American Horror Story: Roanoke) are co-showrunning season one. Rachel is also writing the series and will executive produce with Cooper, Stephen Gaghan, Wolfgang Hammer, and Winnie Kemp. (Chambers was developed by Gaghan’s Super Deluxe.)

Thurman’s credits include the starring role in the Kill Bill film series which reunited the Academy Award nominee with her Pulp Fiction director Quentin Tarantino. Thurman’s resume also includes Hysterical Blindness, Dangerous Liaisons, Henry & June, Batman & Robin, 1998’s Les Miserables, Prime, Be Cool, The Producers, and My Super Ex-Girlfriend.

Thurman’s television credits include an arc on Bravo’s Imposters and NBC’s The Slap. In 2012 Thurman was nominated in the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series category at the Emmy’s for her role as Rebecca Duvall in Smash.

Uma Thurman recently completed work on director Rodrigo Cortes’ dramatic fantasy Down a Dark Hall co-starring Isabelle Fuhrman, AnnaSophia Robb, and Rosie Day. She also recently finished shooting the family comedy War with Grandpa directed by Tim Hill (Alvin and the Chipmunks) and co-starring Robert De Niro, Christopher Walken, Jane Seymour, Colin Ford, and Rob Riggle.

The Chambers Plot: 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.

Uma Thurman plays 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.
