Netflix Adding 12 New Titles This Week

Netflix this week plans to add 12 new TV shows and movies to its streaming lineup, including eight originals.

The new title list will include Maniac (pictured above), a Netflix original limited series starring Emma Stone and Jonah Hill as participants in a mysterious  experiment at an equally mysterious medical center. The show is from Cary Fukunaga, the creative force behind season one of HBO’s True Detective.

RottenTomatoes.com, which tracks critical reviews, gives the show a score of 80 out of a possible 100 with four of five critics surveyed saying they like it.

“Maniac starts off too absorbed in its own complicated structure, but once Owen and Annie (Hill and Stone) are strapped in at the lab… the show becomes a visually compelling romp through highly detailed dreams and personal discoveries,” writes Hank Stuever of The Washington Post.

Also notable this week: Season one of The Good Cop, a Netflix original drama starring Tony Danza, and Quincy, a Netflix original documentary on veteran music producer Quincy Jones. The show is produced by Quincy’s daughter, Rashida Jones (The Office, Parks & Recreation).
