A psychological horror TV show, Servant follows a Philadelphia couple. They are in mourning after an unspeakable tragedy creates a rift in their marriage. It also opens the door for a mysterious force to enter their home.
Sean and Dorothy Turner (Kebbell and Ambrose) hire Leanne (Free), a young live-in nanny who’s very quiet and has strict religious practices. It’s revealed that the Turner’s baby, Jericho, died several months ago. The infant that Leanne has been hired to care for is a very realistic doll that provides comfort to Dorothy.
Though he hates the idea, Sean goes along with it for the sake of his wife. Leanne also treats the doll like a real baby and places a handmade crucifix over the crib.
Soon after, while in the home alone, Sean hears a baby’s cry and investigates. He discovers a real baby in the crib instead of the doll. Sean confronts Leanne, but she acts as if the baby’s been there all along. He calls Dorothy’s younger brother, Julian (Grint), who agrees to seek help from a detective friend.
