Expect feel-good titles, true crime docuseries and more reality-tv drama

After some badass yet empowering stories last month, we’re looking forward to feel-good titles, more true-crime documentaries and a return of some burning reality-tv drama we’re more than obsessed with to see play out.

 

Along for the Ride

 

 

It’s Auden’s last summer before college and she’s spending it in picturesque Colby Beach. Nights have always been her time, her chance to escape everything around her while the quaint little town falls asleep. Everything changes when she meets Eli, a charming fellow insomniac who becomes her nocturnal tour guide. Amidst dreamy, midsummer nights, the two embark on a quest to show each other how to live life to their fullest. Sofia Alvarez writes and directs this adaptation of Sarah Dessen's best-selling novel. Starring Emma Pasarow and Belmont Cameli. Coming to Netflix on 22 Apr.

 

Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story

 

 

Jimmy Savile was one of the United Kingdom’s most beloved TV personalities, with his charming eccentricity and generous philanthropy activities – or, at least, that’s what he wanted us to believe. His crimes were disclosed through an investigation prompted after his death, sparking more than 450 horrific allegations of sexual assault and abuse from male and female victims alike, ranging from those as young as 5. This tragic cautionary documentary examines, through extensive archive footage, the evil within Jimmy and delves into how he managed to fool an entire nation for four decades. Coming to Netflix on 06 April.

 

Our Blues

 

 

With its ultra-packed, almost-exclusive line-up of A-list industry heavyweights, this slice-of-life series has been highly anticipated since it first went into development. This omnibus-style drama recounts the sweet, sour, and bitter stories of seven diverse characters who live and work on bustling Jeju Island. The story of pain and hope is one that everyone experiences throughout life, and Our Blues conveys a semblance of comfort to the ones still holding on. Starring Lee Byung-hun, Shin Min-a, Cha Seung-won, Han Ji-min, Kim Woo-bin, Lee Jung-eun, and Uhm Jung-hwa. Coming to Netflix on 09 April.

 

The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On

 

 

Get hitched or call it quits? Six different established couples on the verge of marriage, one partner is ready to get married, but the other isn’t quite as sure. So an ultimatum is issued: commit to marriage in eight weeks, or break up for good. The catch? Each individual gets to choose a new potential partner from the other couples present, and shack up with them to experience a possible, alternative future. Starring Nick and Vanessa Lachey as hosts. Coming to Netflix on 06 Apr.

 

Tomorrow

 

 

Adapted from the hit webtoon of the same name, Tomorrow tells the story of a handsome, young graduate who gets into an unfortunate accident while struggling to find a job. He crosses paths with two grim reapers, who belong to a crisis management team solely dedicated to rescuing those contemplating suicide, and winds up joining their team in the underworld to carry out emotionally heavy missions as the youngest member.
