Adding to Netflix’s collection of British limited series is the new drama thriller series from Melissa James Gibson and David E. Kelley. The former was involved with House of Cards and The Americans while the latter was involved with The Practice and L.A. Law so very high calibre.

Here’s what you can expect from the new series:

Cast: Theodore Slauson, Bob Barker, Roger Dobkowitz
Runtime: 72 min

One of the unscheduled releases for today is the return of this superb documentary about a Price is Right superfan who managed to work out the TV gameshow formula and therefore has all the answers ahead of when the questions actually come.

The Fairly OddParents (Seasons 1-3)

Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy
Cast: Tara Strong, Susanne Blakeslee, Daran Norris
Writer: Butch Hartman, Bob Boyle
Runtime: 30 min

Adding to the collection of Nickelodeon titles on Netflix this weekend is The Fairly OddParents which sees its first three seasons drop onto Netflix.

As we’ve covered separately, this addition is likely strategic to try and get people to jump over to Paramount+ to watch the later seasons and the brand new live-action series.
