All this week’s Netflix Originals (Available from Friday 4th August 2017)

One of the great things about Netflix are their Netflix Originals – be it films or series made by Netflix themselves or exclusive content available only on Netflix after it airs on regular TV. Every week we will give you a round up of new Netflix Originals becoming available in the next week. We will aim to post every week on Wednesday evening with what will be available over the coming week starting the following Friday. Perfect if you’re looking to check out what new Originals are available to watch over your weekend or if you’re planning a week long Netflix binge watch! This area is exclusively for Netflix Originals, for general Netflix additions and removals or to view the current full catalogue check out your regional New On Netflix website.


As the title suggests this documentary flies dangerously close to the sun; the sun being Russian government of course. With unexplained deaths, conspiracy and political motives, Filmmaker Bryan Fogel along side Grigory Rodchenkov uncover the scandal of doping tactics in Russian sport.  The documentary seeks to present evidence of doping in all sport in Russia and claims that president Putin was fully aware.

The trailer claims that 99% of Russian athletes are guilty of doping. For those who love sport of any kind and for those who like documentaries particularly those uncovering large conspiracies, this is definitely the one to watch. What started as a personal project became a documentary with great importance in unravelling the conspiracy in the history of sport.

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years On

This eight episode series is a sequel to the 2015 cult series which in itself was a spin off & prequel to the 2001 movie “Wet Hot American Summer.” In this new series the original cast star alongside all new characters in a reunion of friends from summer camp, Camp Firewood.

Where the 2015 series was set in 1981 as a twirl to the cult spoof movie, this hilarious new series is set in 1991. The campers are now ten years on in their careers and personal lives and return to camp to save it from closure.
