The newest trailer is pure genius. Netflix’s marketing team has truly outdone themselves by giving the clip a grainy VHS-type treatment. Since the satirical romantic comedy series takes place during the 80s, it’s totally appropriate and inspired.

Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp is an eight-episode miniseries prequel to the 2001 cult film, Wet Hot American Summer. Many of the original stars are reprising their roles including Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, Janeane Garofalo, Paul Rudd, Ken Marino and Elizabeth Banks to name a few.

The streaming service unleashes all brand new episodes on July 31, 2015. Check out the latest trailer below.

Lauryn Hill Delivers Sensational Nina Simone Cover

In: Donovan, Music

Some of the brightest moments of her career occurred when she covered classics such “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” “Turn Your Lights Down Low” and the smash hit “Killing Me Softly.” The 40-year-old Grammy winner re-emerges to deliver another sensational song cover, or covers I should say.

To accompany Netflix’s upcoming Nina Simone documentary, What Happened, Miss Simone?, a number of musicians headed to the studio to honor the jazz icon. Lauryn Hill was originally set to only record two tracks but became so involved, she ended up tackling six songs.

“Because I fed on this music, both hers and lovers like her, like my basic food, I believed I always had a right to have a voice. Her example is clearly a form of sustenance to a generation needing to find theirs. What a gift.” – Lauryn Hill

Joining Hill on the album, Nina Revisited: A Tribute to Nina Simone, are Jazmine Sullivan, Mary J. Blige, Usher, Common and Lalah Hathaway to name a few. What Happened, Miss Simone? will premiere on Netflix on June 26. Check out Lauryn’s cover below.

Orange Is The New BACK!

Crazy Eyes, Poussey, Red, Nicky, (and I suppose Piper if you’re still into her) are back and this time it’s a whole new jailhouse ballgame. Gone are the semi insane storylines of prison breaks and constant murder threats: this season seems to be a lot more focused on women, nature vs. nurture, and the place of criminals in our society. Don’t worry, this isn’t a spoiler article: mostly because I LOATHE when people can’t comment on something without giving away plot details… but also mostly because I’m only like 5 episodes deep. Guess I’m not that superfan I mentioned earlier! Really though, the blame falls on the girls: click through and I’ll tell you why.

Best.News.Ever!!!

Freshman comedy Grace and Frankie received a second season order from Netflix. The news was revealed Tuesday night on an FYC panel at the Pacific Design Center attended by series co-creators and executive producers Marta Kauffman and Howard J. Morris, along with its stars Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Martin Sheen.

“Let me say, it’s so awesome to do a show on Netflix,” said Marta Kauffman, series co-creator and exec producer, “because two and a half weeks after we launched, Miley Cyrus does a tweet about your show, and they call and say, ‘We’d like to do a season two.’ So yes, there is a season two. We have Ted (Sarandos, Netflix) and Miley to thank.”

From the creative minds who gave the world The Matrix trilogy and Cloud Atlas, comes an exciting new thrilling series. The Wachowskis team up with J. Michael Straczynski (World War Z) and Grant Hill for what will undoubtedly be Netflix’s next breakout hit, Sense8.

The sci-fi drama follows eight characters- Will (Brian J. Smith), Riley (Tuppence Middleton), Capheus (Aml Ameen), Sun (Bae Doona), Lito (Miguel Angel Silvestre), Kala (Tina Desai), Wolfgang (Max Riemelt), and Nomi (Jamie Clayton)- living in different cities around the world who one day find that they are all mentally connected. This moment puts all eight strangers in each other’s lives, each other’s secrets, and in terrible danger.

Unlike anything seen on television before, Sense8 pushes the boundaries in style, scope and story. All 12 episodes of the global dramatic thriller will launch Friday, June 5 only on the streaming service. Check out the official trailer below.

As the old adage states, if you can’t beat them, join them. Netflix that is.

In an unprecedented move by any broadcast network, NBC revealed it will release all 13 episodes of David Duchovny’s new series immediately after the two-hour premiere on Thursday, May 28. Aquarius will then be available on NBC.com, the network’s app and other on-demand platforms.

Set in the 1960s, Duchovny plays an LA police sergeant who is helped in a missing persons case by undercover officer Brian Shafe (Grey Damon), who behaves like a hippie and fits in with the people being questioned. Unknown to them, their investigation will lead them to Charles Manson. Aquarius is a sprawling work of historical fiction that begins two years before the 1969 Tate-LaBianca murders.
