Netflix's supernatural medical drama 'Chambers' has Uma Thurman starring in a lead role
Cast as a central character, Nancy, Thurman plays mother to a heart donor and goes on to develop a relationship of some sorts with the young recipient.
The influx of Hollywood topguns on market-leading Netflix's platform is nothing new and the latest one to join the bandwagon is none other than 'Pulp Fiction' star Uma Thurman.
The 48-year-old actress, who has previously courted the small screen with shows like Bravo's 'Imposters' and NBC's miniseries 'The Slap' and series 'Smash', is reported to be starring on a supernatural drama with a medical mystery, 'Chambers' for the streaming giant.
Cast as a central character, Nancy, Thurman plays mother to a heart donor and goes on to develop a relationship of some sorts with the young recipient. However, it won't be until much later when Thurman's character finds out that there's more to the story about her dead daughter. Turns out she is not as dead as Nancy assumed, reports Deadline.

The heart attack survivor, at the center of all action, however, will be battling tons of plot twists and mysteries as she starts to uncover the secrets surrounding the heart that gave her a second life. Especially as she gets closer to the truth, learning about the way how her donor died, it turns out, that things will take a "troublingly sinister" turn.
'Chambers' received a 10-episode order, "straight-to-series" from Netflix in January. While multiple reports confirmed Thurman's part in the supernatural medical drama with a sinister twist, other casting details are still under the wraps.
Scripted and created by Leah Rachel, the series will have 'Luke Cage’s' Akela Cooper serving as the showrunner along with Rachel. On the executive producer's side, though, there are Stephen Gaghan, Wolfgang Hammer, and Winnie Kemp.
Here's a look at the official synopsis released by Netflix: "Consumed by the mystery surrounding the donor heart that saved her life, a young patient starts taking on sinister characteristics of the deceased."
