Here are out top picks of the newest content to hit Netflix this month, including new series from Britain, France and America.
After Life is a new British dark comedy series created, executive produced, directed and led by Ricky Gervais.
Following Tony, a man who had a perfect life before his wife died from a battle with breast cancer, the series focuses on the unusual and controversial way he deals with his loss, turning to literally saying and doing whatever he wants no matter the consequences.
As expected, the situation begins to turn tricky when everyone around him starts trying to make him return to being the good man he once was.
The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann
The Madeleine McCann case shocked the nation when it first made the news in 2006 and still hasn’t been resolved over ten years later, inspiring campaigns and investigations across the globe.
This new Netflix documentary takes a detailed look at the disappearance of the three-year-old, who vanished while on holiday with her family in Portugal. Madeleine’s parents, Jerry and Kate, had nothing to do with the creation of the documentary, making it somewhat of a controversial release for the streaming service.
Turn Up Charlie
Turn Up Charlie is a new British comedy created by Gary Reich and 2018’s Sexiest Man Alive according to People magazine, Idris Elba.
Worlds away from his role in BBC’s Luther, this series stars Elba as a one-hit wonder DJ and self-professed eternal bachelor. Resigned to a life of being a bit of a money-lending slob, he finds himself in a whole new world when he reluctantly agrees to become a nanny for his famous friend's problem-child daughter.
Brit Marling, creator and executive producer of this Stranger Things-esque series, is back in the leading role of Prairie Johnson as the second season of The OA drops on Netflix this month.
The last season followed a young woman who returned home after a seven-year disappearance, with a miraculous revelation – she was no longer blind. The new episodes are set to finally reveal to the viewers more information about the strange events that occurred during the time that Prairie was missing.
A new science fiction drama set in near-future Paris, this series sees the development of a dating app called Osmosis that claims to be able to decode true love, digging deep into its users’ brain data to find them a perfect match with 100% accuracy.
But there’s bound to be a price to pay when you let an algorithm decide who you will love, and is using technology that can access the innermost recesses of your mind and your best-kept secrets really the smartest idea?
Fans of Black Mirror should definitely check out this tech-heavy treat.
