Netflix this week (October 20-26) plans to add 22 new TV shows and movies to its streaming lineup, including 15 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 Dolemite Is My Name (pictured above), a Netflix original movie starring Eddie Murphy as a washed-up standup comedian and actor who returns to stardom after assuming a different identity.

RottenTomatoes.com, which tracks critical reviews, gives the movie a score of 98 out of a possible 100, based on a survey of 114 critics.
“In dramatizing Rudy Ray Moore’s stranger-than-fiction story, Eddie Murphy makes Dolemite Is My Name just as bold, brash, and ultimately hard to resist as its subject,” the site states, summarizing the reviews.
