The online streaming giant that is Netflix just keeps knocking it out of the park with hit after hit getting added to the platform. Whether it's brand new and original content or the addition of classics that we all know and love, Netflix knows how to keep its customers happy.
So what can we expect to land on our tv screens in March 2020?
Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution is the latest documentary from Barack and Michelle Obama's Higher Ground production company. It premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year to rave reviews and focuses on Camp Jened, a camp ‘for the handicapped' in the Catskills that help spark the disability rights movement. It is co-directed by filmmaker Nicole Newnham and former camper Jim LeBrecht and already has been getting plenty of award buzz. Crip Camp will stream on March 25th.
Keeping with the documentaries, the hugely popular Dirty Money is back with a second season. The critically-acclaimed investigative series provides an up-close and personal view into untold stories of scandal, financial malfeasance, and corruption in the world of business. That airs on March 11th.
And then we have Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness which really brings the crazy to Netflix. In the stranger-than-fiction world of big cat owners, Joe Exotic stands out like no other. A mulleted, gun-toting polygamist and country western singer, he presides over an Oklahoma roadside zoo. But things take a dark turn when an animal activist threatens to put him out of business.
100 Humans, on March 13th, takes a really interesting look at one hundred volunteers who participate in experiments that tackle questions about age, gender, happiness and other aspects of being human.
There are a few gems and blockbusters winging their way to us in March. First up is Spencer Confidential on March 6th. Starring Mark Wahlberg, he plays an ex-cop who has just got out of prison and is leaving Boston for good. But when two of his former colleagues turn up murdered, he needs to investigate and bring the culprits to justice. This is an all-out action flick inspired by Robert B. Parker’s Wonderland, a best-selling novel by Ace Atkins.
Inspired by Robert Kolker’s best-selling nonfiction book of the same name, Lost Girls, is another big addition this month on March 13th. It stars Amy Ryan as a mother who goes in search of her missing 24-year-old daughter. Given that it is based on real events, expect this to be a dark, unsettling movie.
If psychological thrillers are more your thing then check out The Occupant on March 25th. When an unemployed executive is forced to sell his apartment, he discovers that he still has the keys and becomes obsessed with the family that now lives there.
The pick of the new series heading our way include Feel Good starring Mae Martin as Mae, a rising talent on the stand-up circuit. A recovering addict whose behaviours dominate every single part of her life, she embarks on an intoxicating romance and tries to transform her relationship to a healthy one.
Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker is the really big new series for March. Starring Oscar winner Octavia Spencer, she plays real-life heroine Madam C.J. Walker, who was America’s first female self-made millionaire. It's a feel-good, uplifting story of this cultural icon brought to the screen for the first time.
The English Game is a six-part drama charts the origins of football and how the game was established as the world's most popular sport and one of the biggest draws to online casinos. Written by Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes it features a cast of well-known faces including Edward Holcroft, Kevin Guthrie and Charlotte Hope.
For family viewing, The Letter for the King is a fantasy adventure where a young knight in training named Tiuri embarks on an epic quest to deliver a secret letter to the king.
