    ‘Maniac’ Starring Jonah Hill and Emma Stone (Teaser)

    Netflix seems to have some sort of viewer data indicating that various demographic quadrants are interested in strange, mysterious stuff. First we had the teaser for Roma, and now we have an equally strange teaser for Maniac, an upcoming limited series starring Jonah Hill and Emma Stone.

    ‘The End of the F**king World': UK Series Coming to Netflix (Trailer)

    There’s no better way to guarantee a hit series than building it around a psychopathic man – Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, Mad Men, and Curb Your Enthusiasm being just four recent examples.
