Netflix next month (December 2020) plans to add 123 new TV shows and movies to its streaming lineup, including 65 originals.

The new titles will include Mank, the Netflix original dramatic film starring Gary Oldman as Herman J. Mankiewicz, who co-wrote (with Orson Welles) the screenplay for Citizen Kane. The film, directed by David Fincher (Seven, Zodiac, Gone Girl), chronicles the tension between Mankiewicz and Welles during the making of what many critics call the greatest movie ever. (Relative unknown Tom Burke plays Welles., which tracks critical reviews, gives Mank a score of 89 out of a possible 100, based on 116 reviews.

“Sharply written and brilliantly performed, Mank peers behind the scenes of Citizen Kane to tell an old Hollywood story that could end up being a classic in its own right,” the site states, summarizing the reviews.

Also notable in December: Season one of Selena: The Series, a Netflix original show about the life of the late Tejano singer; The Prom, a Netflix original musical film starring Meryl Streep and James Corden as fading Broadway stars who go to Indiana to fight for a high school girl’s right to bring another girl to the prom. (Yes, it’s directed by Ryan Murphy.); The Ripper, a Netflix original documentary about a serial killer who haunted Yorkshire, England in the 1970s; The Midnight Sky, a Netflix original movie directed by George Clooney, who also stars as a scientist who rushes to stop a group of orbiting astronauts from returning to a coming disaster on Earth; a new season of Mr. Iglesias, the comedy starring Gabriel Iglesias; and season four of The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina, Netflix’s original, darker reboot of the former ABC children’s series. Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men) takes over for Melissa Joan Hart in the title role.
