Netflix This Week: 29 New Titles, 8 Originals

Netflix this week (July 28 to August 3) plans to add 29 new TV shows and movies to its streaming lineup, including eight originals. (Note: Netflix labels a show an ‘original’ even if it first airs in another country, but airs first on Netflix in the United States.)

The new titles will include season three of Dear White People (pictured above), a Netflix original comedy which satirizes white racism at a mythical university.

The show, which has been savaged by some conservatives, has become a critical darling with RottenTomatoes.com giving it a score of 91 percent out of a possible 100. Variety calls it “smart and necessary” while Richard Roeper says it’s “tight, funny, smart and insightful.”
