Netflix Bulks Up in 2017 on Original Content; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of February 13, 2017)

Netflix

Internet TV knows no time slot, no genre and no geographic bounds. Freed from these constraints, Netflix is able to program for over 93 million unique tastes of entertainment lovers around the world, from the romantic comedy lover in Paris to the sci-fi aficionado in Sao Paulo and everyone in between. That's why in 2017, the streaming service will deliver the biggest and most diverse slate in Netflix history -- with more than 1,000 hours of new series, films, stand-up specials, documentaries and more for members around the world. Netflix's goal is to create an experience that consistently presents the right content to the right member at the right time. Over time, the service has improved its algorithms and developed a global recommendation system, delivering an even more personalized experience that helps members easily find a diverse set of movies, TV shows and more that they otherwise may not have been able to discover.

Earlier this week at the Hudson Mercantile in New York, Netflix provided a first look at some of the new original content coming this year that may appear in a "Recommended for You" row sometime soon. Among the news items were: Grace and Frankie will premiere March 24, 2017. 13 Reasons Why, produced by Selena Gomez, premieres March 31, 2017. New comedy Girlboss premieres April 21, 2017. Bill Nye Saves The World will premiere April 21, 2017. Orange Is The New Black Season 5 will premiere June 9, 2017. Anne will premiere May 12, 2017. Dear White People will premiere April 28, 2017. Casting JonBenet will premiere April 28, 2017. The OA Part II Pick-up. Love Season 3 Pick-up. Chef's Table Season 3.
