Netflix is pulling the curtain back on its forthcoming Naomi Watts drama.

The streaming giant released the first teaser for Watts-led psychological drama Gypsy on Thursday ahead of the series' June 30 debut.

In the series, Watts plays Jean Halloway, a Manhattan therapist with a seemingly picturesque life who begins to develop intimate and illicit relationships with the people in her patients' lives. As the borders of Jean's professional life and personal fantasies become blurred, she descends into a world where the forces of desire and reality are disastrously at odds. 

The new footage emphasizes that potential conflict of interest. "I will not violate the physical boundaries of the patient," she says in the video as she lists the rules of her job.

In addition to Watts, who returns to full-time TV for the first time in 20 years, the cast includes Billy Crudup as Jean's husband, Michael Halloway, while Sophie Cookson (Kingsman: The Secret Service), Lucy Boynton (Murder on the Orient Express) and Karl Glusman (Nocturnal Animals) play three of Jean's patients.

The series also has impressive names behind the scenes, most notably Fifty Shades of Grey's Sam Taylor-Johnson, who directs several episodes. Penned by newcomer Lisa Rubin, Gypsy is exec produced by Rubin, Watts, Sean Jablonski and Liza Chasin. Universal Television produces.

Gypsy's entire first season premieres June 30. Watch the trailer below.
