Netflix this week (April 18-24) plans to add 10 new TV shows and movies to its streaming lineup, including seven originals.
The new titles will include Shadow and Bone, a Netflix original fantasy series starring Jessie Mei Li as an orphan child who has special magical powers that could set the world free from the evil Shadow Fold. Based on the 2012 novel of the same name, the eight-episode series co-stars Ben Barnes, Freddy Carter and Kit Young, and some TV writers have said it could become Netflix’s Game of Thrones. That’s a tall order, but the fun begins on Friday.
Also notable this week: Life In Color With David Attenborough, a Netflix original documentary chronicling how animals use color to survive in the wild; and Miss Sloane, the 2016 drama starring Jessica Chastain as a Washington lobbyist whose unquenchable thirst for success is threatened when her opponents investigate her personal life.
