Most networks choose to present their spring lineup during January’s Television Critics Association press tour, but Netflix isn’t like most networks. The streaming giant has instead put together its own event this Wednesday in New York, organizing a series of panels devoted to capturing an incredible spread of original content coming soon to our devices.
New shows getting the spotlight include “Santa Clarita Diet,” featuring Timothy Olyphant and Drew Barrymore as a suburban couple with a bloody mess on their hands; “Girlboss,” a fictionalized retelling of Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amorus’s journey to creating a fashion empire; and “13 Reasons Why,” a series adaptation of Jay Asher’s teen suicide novel directed by “Spotlight’s” Tom McCarthy.
In addition, actors and creators representing some of Netflix’s biggest recent and upcoming releases will be featured, including “The OA,” “Sense8,” “Love,” “Orange is the New Black,” “Marvel’s Iron Fist,” and “Dear White People.”
Bonus: Both Michael Bolton and Julie Andrews will be making appearances! (For different shows, unfortunately.)
