In Netflix‘s upcoming series Chambers, the heart wants what the heart wants — whether Uma Thurman (Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill) likes it or not. The actress is set to join the streaming service’s 10-episode supernatural drama, created and written by co-showrunner Leah Rachel, with Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) directing the pilot. Stephen Gaghan (Syriana) executive produces alongside Gomez-Rejon; and are joined by Rachel, co-showrunner Akela Cooper, Wolfgang Hammer, and Winnie Kemp via Super Deluxe.
Chambers centers on a young heart attack survivor who 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.
Thurman’s Nancy is the mother of the 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.
In February 2018, Thurman took to Instagram to detail the events behind her stunt accident on the set of Kill Bill and what she claims was an organized cover-up following (in its original post form):
“i post this clip to memorialize it’s full exposure in the nyt by Maureen Dowd. the circumstances of this event were negligent to the point of criminality. i do not believe though with malicious intent. Quentin Tarantino, was deeply regretful and remains remorseful about this sorry event, and gave me the footage years later so i could expose it and let it see the light of day, regardless of it most likely being an event for which justice will never be possible. he also did so with full knowledge it could cause him personal harm, and i am proud of him for doing the right thing and for his courage. THE COVER UP after the fact is UNFORGIVABLE. for this i hold Lawrence Bender, E. Bennett Walsh, and the notorious Harvey Weinstein solely responsible. they lied, destroyed evidence, and continue to lie about the permanent harm they caused and then chose to suppress. the cover up did have malicious intent, and shame on these three for all eternity. CAA never sent anyone to Mexico. i hope they look after other clients more respectfully if they in fact want to do the job for which they take money with any decency.”
