Netflix next month (May 2020) plans to add 98 new TV shows and movies to its streaming lineup, including 49 originals.

The new titles will include Uncut Gems, the brilliant 2019 dramatic movie starring Adam Sandler as a jewelry store owner whose gambling addiction leads him to a variety of unwise life decisions including a major wager on a NBA playoff game featuring Kevin Garnett. The cast includes the aforementioned Garnett, Eric Bogosian, Judd Hirsch and Idina Menzel. gives Uncut Gems a score of 92 out of a possible 100 based on 313 critical reviews.

“It’s a breathless journey that captures the exhilaration and the hopelessness of living life on the edge. It’s a gamble that pays off, and then some,” writes Adam Graham of The Detroit News.

Also notable in May: Jerry Seinfeld: 23 Hours to Kill, a Netflix original stand-up special from the aforementioned megastar of a certain NBC sitcom; Hollywood (pictured above), a Netflix original dramatic miniseries from Ryan Murphy (Feud, American Crime Story) about becoming a star in post-war Tinseltown; season two of Dead to Me, the Netflix original comedy/drama starring Christina Applegate who befriends a quirky woman (Linda Cardellini) while trying to solve her husband’s mysterious death; Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Kimmy Vs. The Reverend, a new episode in Netflix’s original comedy starring Ellie Kemper (The Office); and Space Force, a Netflix original comedy series starring Steve Carell as an Air Force general charged with starting a new military unit in outer space. (And if Carell as the star doesn’t sell you, the supporting cast includes John Malkovich, Lisa Kudrow and Fred Willard.)
