Netflix have released to Sizzle videos for two of their new original programs for this year. Which is important for me as a cord cutter because Netflix is one of the main ways I consume new TV content these days.
First up is The Crown which “[…] reveals the political rivalries and romance behind Queen Elizabeth II’s reign and the events that shaped the 2nd half of the 20th century.”
Then The Get Down “[..] a mythic saga of the transformation of 1970s New York City.”
Both shows look pretty good with The Crown banking on its casting and subject matter. (People sure do love entertainment about the Queen!) While The Get Down is being put together by Baz Luhrmann (Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge!, The Great Gatsby, etc.) so I am expecting a kinetic mix of music, style and “high stakes drama.”
Both shows look like fine additions to Netflix’s growing range of original content. I just need to get through every other TV show on my To Watch list before they come out later this year…
