Coming to Netflix Australia in September

The Politician

The people have spoken, and it seems The Politician is one of the most anticipated shows of the year. Payton, a deadly ambitious high school student, knows he’s going to be president. But first, he’ll have to join his fellow classmates in fighting to the literal death in hopes of becoming the next class president. The dark musical comedy is a Netflix original created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan. It stars Ben Platt, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jessica Lange.

The Chef Show

Since mentoring Jon Favreau for the film Chef in 2014, real-life chef Roy Choi has joined Favreau once again for a culinary adventure with a variety of seasoned chefs and a bunch of their celebrity friends.

Unbelievable (Season 1)

In 2008, Marie Adler reported she was bound by her shoelaces and raped by a masked man at knifepoint. Although the 18-year old was soon pressured into taking back her claim and admitting it could all have been a dream after the male detectives in charge, along with her foster mothers, noticed some inconsistencies and began doubting her story. Marie was then accused of false reporting and placed a plea deal.

But as reports of similar cases began popping up years later, two Colorado female detectives teamed up to find Marie as well as the serial rapist behind the attacks. Unbelievable is a true crime series based on the Pullitzer Price-winning article, ‘An Unbelievable Story of Rape’. The cast includes Kaitlyn Dever, Toni Collette and Merritt Wever.

Criminal

The massively anticipated series will span across four countries: The United Kingdom, Germany, France and Spain. Each place is expected to set the scene for a different crime, and will be filmed in the respective languages. It will also feature iconic actors from each country, with David Tennant being one of the big names listed for the UK episode.

Elite: Season 2

Can anyone say, drama? The creators of Elite are not taking any prisoners in the latest episodes of this Spanish series, especially as Samuel becomes unstoppable to do everything in his power to prove his brother’s innocence in Marina’s murder. Las Encindas will also be welcoming a few new members, including Cayetana (Georgina Amoros), Rebeca (Claudia Salas) and Valerio (Jorge Lopez).

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Thanks to Newt Scamander, MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America) has finally been able to capture the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald. But it seems Grindelwald has kept his word and escaped custody to collect as many followers to help him push his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings. It’s up to Newt and Albus Dumbledore to stop the Dark wizard, but it won’t be easy. The film stars Eddie Redmayne, Jude Law and Johnny Depp.

Coming to Stan in September

Killing Eve

It’ll be a crime if you don’t catch one of the most addictive shows of the year on Stan. Killing Eve is a thriller series in which two women, bound by their obsession over each other, play a dangerous game of cat and mouse. It features Sandrah Oh as Eve Polastri, an intelligent spy, and Jodie Corner as the psychopathic yet intriguing assassin known as Villanelle.

Gangster Squad

We’re in Los Angeles in 1949, and Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) is the ruthless mob king running the town. Thanks to the protection of his paid goons, and even the police and politicians under his control, he’s claiming all the coin illegally earned from drugs, guns and prostitutes — as well as bets placed west of Chicago. Unfortunately for Cohen, there’s a small secret crew of LAPD outsiders who are anything but afraid. Led by Sgt. John O’Mara (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), this brave team is going to turn the mobster’s world upside down.

Charlotte’s Web

Charlotte’s Web is the heartwarming story of loyalty, trust and sacrifice. From book to screen, the must-see film follows the relationship between Fern (Dakota Fanning) and Wilbur, a ‘terrific’ and ‘radiant’ pig. As he moves into a new barn, Wilbur begins to make friends with many of the animals. But it’s his special friendship with a spider named Charlotte that motivates everyone to come together as a family. Once the others find out Wilbur’s time is running out, Charlotte spins words into her web in an attempt to persuade the farmer that Wilbur is “some pig” worth saving.

Undone is a unique, genre-bending, animated series that explores the ‘elastic nature of reality’ through Alma, a 28 year-old woman living in San Antonio, Texas.
