With perpetual honesty and jokes so funny they draw tears to your eyes, C.K.’s new special is sure to impress.
The Get Down (Season 1: Part 2)
The Get Down is a Netflix original, and one of their most expensive shows to create and produce.

Episodes feature real footage and newscasts from the 1970s, as well as a breakout cast. Start watching the first part of Season 1 now so you’re caught up when the rest of the season is released.
Win it All
Win it All is an original movie and comedy from the mind of Jake Johnson, most commonly known for his role as Nick Miller on FOX’s New Girl, and director Joe Swanberg. The movie centers around a man who can’t seem to stop gambling, and how it interacts and interferes with his life. Johnson stars in the film, along with Jo Lo Truglio of FOX’s Brooklyn 99 and Keegan-Michael Key, who is known for his past show on Comedy Central Key & Peele. With a cast like this, there’s no doubt Win it All will have you laughing.
Girlboss (Season 1)
Charlize Theron of Mad Max and Snow White and the Huntsman and Kay Cannon, showrunner of Pitch Perfect 2, are producing this original Netflix show. The story line is based off a best-selling book written by Sophia Amoruso, who rose to CEO-dom after starting an eBay store selling vintage clothing and other items at the age of 22. While her brand and company, Nasty Gal, has filed for bankruptcy, Girlboss is set to inspire its viewers and girls everywhere to be their own boss and own their life. Britt Robertson (Tomorrowland) is set to start as Amoruso.
Bill Nye Saves the World (Season 1)
America’s favorite science guy is coming to Netflix! Bill Nye the Science Guy, Nye’s original show that many of us saw in our science classrooms back in the day, is on Netflix currently. When the show was put on the streaming site, many people got excited over the idea of a whole new show starring the science guy. Each of the 13 episodes, viewers will be taken into the depths of a different science topic. Nye has been an advocate for climate change during these past few years, so one episode will surely focus on that. But who doesn’t love learning about science with Bill Nye the Science Guy?
For those of you who loved Netflix’s Making a Murderer, Casting JonBenet will be right up your alley. This crime documentary will tell the story of the unsolved death of JonBenet Ramsey, a six-year-old girl who participated in beauty pageants. The documentary will mix both real and fiction, showing the team trying to cast JonBenet, as well as accounts from the family of Ramsey. While crime documentaries are always thoroughly intriguing, Casting JonBenet promises to be heart-wrenching, too.
