What is it? An acclaimed indie flick shot entirely using iPhone cameras. This day in the life portrait of two transgender prostitutes is an energetic, funny and superbly-acted tour de force of low-budget filmmaking, with surprises and invention emanating from every frame. Unlike anything else out there.

Narcos (Season 2)
What is it? Narcos took the world by storm when its first season debuted back in 2015. Season 1 ended with the the authorities closing in on notorious drug kingpin Pablo Escobar, and Season 2 looks to get a lot more fraught as he struggles to cope with the mental pressure put upon him by the chase.

The White Helmets
What is it? One area in which Netflix has really come into its own is its original documentaries, which often take a look at more niche issues. The White Helmets tells the story of a group of brave volunteer rescue workers in Syria, while looking at the humanitarian crisis in the region and its glimmers of hope. Sure to be a poignant take on one of the worst conflicts of our time.

Easy (Season 1)
What is it? This Netflix original comedy comes from the mind of Joe Swanberg and has a fairly unique premise; an anthology series that takes a diverse group of people from Chicago and has them tackle issues such as love, sex, technology and culture. The show has been kept fairly under wraps up to this point, but high-profile guest stars (including Orlando Bloom) have been teased.

What is it? Making A Murderer swept through Netflix like a wild fire with its true crime investigations, and now, this one off documentary looks to incite similar responses around the case of Amanda Knox, who spent four years in an Italian jail in 2007, before later being cleared of her alleged crimes. The case made shock waves around the world, and this doc should be no different.

Marvel’s Luke Cage (Season 1)
What is it? Marvel hero Cage has already made a barnstorming appearance in Jessica Jones, but now he gets his own series. The first season will be dealing rather predictably with the hero’s origin story, but when you consider just what the show is building towards (Avengers-style supergroup series The Defenders), it’s enough to get even the most casual comic book fan excited. Bullets don’t hurt him and he has super strength, so we should be in for a spectacular first season.
