The new title list for the week includes season one of Friends From College, a comedy about a group of buds from Harvard who reunite now that they are in their 40s.  The ensemble cast features Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele), Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother), and Billy Eichner (Difficult People).

However, the new title that will likely generate the most attention this week is To the Bone, a Netflix original drama about eating disorders. Lily Collins (pictured above) plays a 20-year-old woman who starves herself because she believes she can not become thin enough.

To the Bone has already triggered debate among journalists and medical professionals about whether it will glorify anorexia, or hopefully instead, encourage young women who suffer from eating disorders to seek help.
