After a busy week, there’s not too much new content planned for this weekend with the exception of Sunday being when we get the new David Attenborough documentary released.

Let’s now take a look at a couple of the highlights from today before diving into the full list:

Emily in Paris (Season 1)

Genre: Comedy, Drama
Cast: Lily Collins, Samuel Arnold, Lucas Bravo, Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu
Writer: Darren Star
Runtime: 30 min

Netflix is relatively light on new TV content in the Original department in October which is why Emily in Paris was our second most anticipated title of the month.

Early reviews (at least from outlets outside of France) seem to indicate this is a pleasant and easy to watch comedy-drama that’d you’d find somewhere like NBC or ABC.

Here’s what you can expect diving in:

“After landing her dream job in Paris, Chicago marketing exec Emily Cooper embraces her adventurous new life while juggling work, friends and romance.”

Song Exploder (Season 1)

Genre: Documentary, Music
Cast: Hrishikesh Hirway

One of the big trends you’ll find over the next few years is podcasts being adapted in various different formats. This week, we got a glimpse of what that could look like with Song Exploder.

The show is designed to take some of your favorite songs and take you deep into their construction and meaning with the artists behind them sharing the gossip.

Season 1 features the following artists:

  • Alicia Keys
  • Lin-Manuel Miranda
  • R.E.M.
  • Ty Dolla $ign
