Netflix is adding a bunch of new movies and shows to their lineup this week. While not all of the additions are brand new, many of them are.
The new movies and shows coming this week include a documentary on a famous actress and singer, a new Netflix Original comedy series, a new cooking competition show, and a new action drama.
Netflix’s newest documentary is all about Jennifer Lopez. Halftime looks at Lopez’s career and the pressure she has faced living in the spotlight for most of her life. It also shows how the 2020 Super Bowl halftime show came together and what she wants from the second half of her career. Halftime hits Netflix on Tuesday, June 14, 2022.
Check out the trailer here:
Melissa McCarthy is also back on Netflix and this time, with her husband, Ben Falcone. God’s Favorite Idiot comes to Netflix on Wednesday, June 15. The series follows tech support employee Clark Thompson (played by Falcone) as he falls in love with his co-worker Amy Luck (played by McCarthy). Unfortunately (for him), he also becomes a messenger of God at the same time.
