What to stream on Netflix starting April 1

The last two weeks of March have been dedicated to March Madness and binge-listening Drake’s More Life. Just when you were going to start being productive with your life, Netflix will be releasing new content tomorrow, April 1. To save you some valuable time, here is a list of the top 7 Netflix Originals to stream before delving into recently added old time favs like Cool Runnings and A Nightmare on Elm Street.

The Get Down: Part 2

The Get Down happens to be the most expensive Netflix Original series ever, which is probably why the hip-hop-centric drama only lasted for 6 episodes. Finally, we will be able to catch up The Get Down Brothers and Mylene in the streets of NYC in the late 70s. Streaming on Netflix  April 7.

Win it All

This film reminds me of Mark Wahlberg in The Gambler, except with a twist of comedy. Jake Johnson and Joe Swanberg co-wrote and produced the NETFLIX ORIGINAL starring comedians Keegan-Michael Key and Joe Lo Truglio. Streaming on Netflix April 7.

Sandy Wexler

After Ridiculous 6 and Do Over, the streaming giant and Adam Sandler are back at it again, but this time with Dreamgirl Jennifer Hudson. This isn’t Dreamgirls 2, more like a showbiz mockumentary slash Pitch Perfect slash Empire musical.  Streaming on Netflix April 14.

Bill Nye Saves the World: Season 1

“The Science Guy” is back to make everyday science easier for us to understand. After a few experiments and demonstrations, I may still even run to my mom and ask her something along the lines of  . . . hey did u know? Streaming on Netflix April 21.


Sophia Amoruso’s vintage clothing line Nasty Gal filed for bankruptcy last year, but her journey to success landed her a spot as one of youngest women on Forbes list the Richest Self- Made Women, which is binge-worthy if u ask me. Streaming on Netflix April 21, 2017.

Dear White People: Season 1

After the success of the racially focused horror satire film Get Out, Justin Simien’s 2014 award-winning indie film and now streaming series couldn’t have come at a better time. Get ready for a politically, racially, funny satire series about blackness at an Ivy League school. Streaming on Netflix April 28.

Casting JonBenet

The suspenseful Netflix Original’s like, Making a Murder and Amanda Knox, turned viewers into detectives when trying to determine if Steven Avery and Amanda Knox are murders or victims themselves. Netflix will give us the opportunity to play detective again by mixing reality and fiction to explore the many possibilities leading to JonBenet’s death. Streaming on Netflix April 28, 2017.
