Love Netflix Originals? Well here’s our list of ‘Top Picks’ for this week. Check out the trailers below and let us know what you’re looking forward to this week -a full list of this week’s additions and regional availability at the end of the post. Netflix aren’t always that clear about geographical availability so please bear with us as we try to be as precise as possible about where Netflix Originals will be available.

Halston

Ewan McGregor directs and stars as ‘Halston’, widely recognised as America’s first fashion designer celebrity. The series follows his life as he rapidly rose to stardom in the industry during the 1970s only to struggle to maintain his reputation, work and name. It is worth noting that the family of Roy Halston Frowick aka Halston, has distanced itself from the drama citing inconsistencies. The five-part miniseries looks to examine how Halston struggled during his rise to fame and beyond and is based on the book by journalist and author Steven Gaines. The series also stars Krysta Rodriguez, Rory Culkin and Bill Pullman.
