Here’s What’s Coming to Netflix in November

     October 28, 2015


November, as it turns out, is a big month for originals on Netflix. The month will bring at least three major Netflix original series, each one more heavy with anticipation than the last. This begins with Marvel’s Jessica Jones, the streaming service’s second take on a Marvel property, following their absolutely stunning handling of Daredevil, headed by Drew Goddard. The success of Daredevil puts added pressure on the latest Marvel property to deliver in terms of stakes, tone, style, and action, and thankfully, the trailers for the series thus far have yielded tremendously promising footage. And anticipation for Aziz Ansari‘s new comedy series, Master of None, is similarly gaining immense anticipation, especially after the trailer for the series dropped last week, showing a visual style that feels in the same orbit as both Louie and Mr. Robot, two of the best series of the last decade of television.

Along with those two, there’s also the four-episode-long return of Bob Odenkirk and David Cross as a duo, W/ Bob and David, a promising rekindling of the same comedic minds that brought about Mr. Show. If nothing else, the series would work as a conjurer of nostalgia, to be reminded of what these two perspectives sound and look like together in collaboration. That’s similarly the pull of Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films, a cinephilic dream of documentary chronicling the many years of distribution enjoyed by the transcendentally trashy Cannon Film Group, which premieres late in November.

Cannon is known for funding an obscene amount of right-wing action fantasies, mostly starring Charles Bronson or Chuck Norris, and a long list of equally abhorrent, openly perverse nonsense, but also shepherded a series of out-and-out classics, from John Cassavettes‘ staggering Love Streams and Barbet Schroeder‘s Barfly to Jerry Schatzberg‘s Street Smart and Jean-Luc Godard‘s malevolent, miraculous King Lear. The Cannon Group becomes a symbol of the movie business itself, a shallowly capitalistic enterprise marked by a handful of hugely influential, unique, and brilliant works of art. The same, of course, could be said about Netflix at this point.
