Netflix this week (April 12-18) plans to add 18 new TV shows and movies to its streaming lineup, including 13 originals.

The new titles will include a new episode of Tiger King, the much-talked about documentary featuring ‘Joe Exotic,’ a big cat caretaker who was convicted of engineering a murder-for-hire plot to kill a Florida rival. Joel McHale, former Community star and Soup host, interviews some of the documentary’s participants, including Jeff Lowe, who took over the Oklahoma zoo after Joe Exotic went to prison.

Also notable this week: Sergio, a Netflix original film about an United Nations diplomat who’s trapped in a building in Iraq after a bomb blast; and Too Hot to Handle, a Netflix original reality series about a group of young singles who must stay celibate to win a $100,000 prize.
