  1. Beef (Released April 6) *Netflix Series

One major new streaming release that should be on your radar for April viewing is Beef, a Netflix Original comedy-drama about an incident of road rage that gradually completely consumes and unravels the lives of the two people involved, failing contractor Danny Cho (Steven Yeun) and unfulfilled entrepreneur Amy Lau (Ali Wong).

  1. Transatlantic (Released April 7) *Netflix Series

Based on Julie Orringer’s 2019 novel The Flight Portfolio, this brand new Netflix Original history drama mini-series follows two Americans and their allies as they form a scrappy rescue operation in 1940 Marseilles to help artists, writers and other refugees fleeing Europe during WWII.

This new title is sure to provide a high-stakes adventure from beginning to end, so make sure to catch it when it hits Netflix early in April.

  1. Obsession (Released April 13)

Adapted from Josephine Hart’s 1991 novel Damage, this romantic mystery mini-series follows a risky and taboo love triangle that emerges when enigmatic Anna Barton (Murphy) begins a sultry and intense affair with her fiancé’s father, William (Armitage).

  1. Florida Man (Released April 13)

Seemingly based on the popular, viral headline trend, Florida Man looks considerably better than its meme-y namesake. Swirling a swampy noir-ish story into an action thriller, the seven-parter sees Édgar Ramírez’s ex-cop, Mike Valentine, forced to return to his home state of Florida to track down a mobster’s girlfriend. Produced by the team behind Ozark, it might just be the hit of the month.
