General News Netflix announces premiere dates for nine series
MUMBAI: Internet TV network Netflix has announced premiere dates for eight upcoming series that span documentary, drama and comedy, including ‘Chef’s Table: France’; ‘Joe Swanberg’s Easy’; ‘The Ranch’; ‘Lovesick (fka Scrotal Recall) and ‘Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life’.

Three series ‘Chelsea’, ‘Lady Dynamite’ and ‘Real Rob’ were renewed for a second season. The untitled Motown project, an all-new animated series for children and families from writer/director Josh Wakely, was also announced. And finally, Jennifer Garner will voice a lead character in the animated series ‘Llama, Lama’ and the young cast featured in Greenhouse Academy was also named.

The third installment of ‘Chef’s Table: France’ premieres globally on 2 September. Audiences are invited back to take another globe trot in ‘Chef’s Table: France’ where the series will showcase the crème de la crème of French chefs; talking about what inspires them and how it translates into their individual styles.

The filmmakers embark on a personal look into the daily lives of these carefully curated chefs, from their diverse backgrounds to the evolution and craft of their chosen cuisine as well as their quests for sensory perfection.

‘Easy’ premieres globally on 22 September. This is an anthology series from creator Joe Swanberg that explores diverse Chicago characters as they fumble through the modern maze of love, sex, technology and culture.

‘The Ranch Part 2’ of season one premieres globally on 7 October. Set in present day on a Colorado ranch, this half-hour multi-camera comedy series stars Ashton Kutcher, Danny Masterson, Sam Elliott and Debra Winger.

Life on ‘The Ranch’ is never easy and things get even more complicated in part 2 of season one. It seems like ex-football star Colt Bennett (Kutcher) has finally accepted his place on the family ranch, but he and his brother Rooster (Masterson) will have to prove themselves to their father Beau (Elliot) if they ever hope to become partners.

Maggie (Winger) has hopes of her own and they may no longer involve her on-again/off-again husband and after finally saving his ranch, Beau might be losing his family. And if life weren’t complicated enough, when Colt’s high school sweetheart Abby (Elisha Cuthbert) expresses doubts about her fiancé, Colt must choose between his current girlfriend and his first love. Dysfunctional doesn’t even cover this family.

‘Black Mirror’ premieres globally on 21 October. This is an anthology series that taps into our collective unease with the modern world, with each stand-alone episode a sharp, suspenseful tale exploring themes of contemporary techno-paranoia. Without questioning it, technology has transformed all aspects of our lives; in every home; on every desk; in every palm – a plasma screen; a monitor; a Smartphone – a Black Mirror reflecting our 21st Century existence back at us. The series is created and written by Charlie Brooker, and executive produced by Brooker and Annabel Jones.

‘Lovesick’ premieres globally on 17 November. The second season of ‘Lovesick’, the series formerly known as Scrotal Recall, stars Johnny Flynn, Antonia Thomas and Daniel Ings, all returning for more fun in this delightful, romantic comedy. Season two will consist of eight episodes.

‘Beat Bugs’ season two premieres on 18 November. Inspired by the songs of The Beatles, ‘Beat Bugs’ tells uplifting and life-affirming stories filled with hope and melody. The animated show follows five best friends who together discover life’s most important lessons in an overgrown suburban backyard. The ‘Beat Bugs’ live out these childhood adventures to the words and music of The Beatles.

The 13 episode first season will be available globally on 3 August, and will be second run in Australia.

‘Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life’ premieres globally on 25 November. It includes four 90-minute chapters, each spanning one of the four seasons: Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall.

‘Captive’ premieres globally on 9 December. From the highest profile cases to those kept hidden from the public, comes a new docu-series from executive producer Doug Liman and producers Simon and Jonathan Chinn. The producers of ‘Captive’ have gained access to the most challenging negotiations of our time — revealing how hostage-taking, and the efforts to resolve it, have evolved to address an escalating international trend. The episodes look at a wide range of situations from the viewpoint of everyone involved: the victims and their families back home, the experienced negotiators, business leaders, government officials and the kidnappers themselves.

‘One Day at a Time’ premieres globally on 6 January 2017. This is a reimagining of the Norman Lear classic, centering on a Cuban-American family.

Second season renewals

‘Chelsea’ will return for a 90-episode second season in 2017. Chelsea Handler is back with a freshly stamped passport and new global outlook as she tackles today’s tough issues with the same acerbic wit and fearless curiosity you know and love. Viewers can join her as she travels around the world – from Russia, Japan, and Mexico City, across the US and back again, to explore the subjects that matter most to you.

Chelsea features celebrities, dignitaries, and surprise guests engaging in thought-provoking, yet hilarious conversations about topics like international cultures, alternative lifestyles, education, health, sports, parenting, politics, and more. Season 1 of Chelsea is currently streaming three times a week exclusively on Netflix.

‘Lady Dynamite’ will return for a second season in 2017. This is a single-camera comedy series based on what actor/comedian Maria Bamford has accepted to be “her life.”

‘Real Rob’ will return for a second season in 2017. Rob Schneider’s comedy series, Real Rob, is an exaggerated yet brutally honest depiction of the comedian’s real life, interspersed with his stand-up comedy performances. Managing the ups and downs of a Hollywood career and its celebrity treatment (with his younger Mexican wife, a new baby, an ever-present stalker and a completely incompetent assistant), this comedy series is as close to the bone’ real life of the internationally famous comedian.

The 8-episode second season, now a Netflix original series, stars and is produced and directed by Schneider. Patricia Schneider and Jamie Lissow also appear in the series.
