In an interview with Deadline, executive producer Selena Gomez hoped the series would “shed light on what it’s like to live in this country as an undocumented immigrant firsthand, from the courageous people who have chosen to share their stories.”

Living Undocumented airs October 2 on Netflix Australia.

If Netflix was going to have its own hip-hop talent show, it would need to recruit rap’s biggest names. Cardi B, Chance the Rapper, and T.I. heeded the call.

The show searched in New York, Atlanta and Chicago – in “all of the hoods, all the studios, all the nightclubs, even the barbershops” – to find the next big thing in hip-hop.

Speaking of the show, Chance sought artists that are “unsigned, dedicated and ready”, Cardi was looking for “that diamond in the rough”, and TIP assured viewers that with show’s authenticity would be “through the roof”.

Rhythm + Flow airs October 9 on Netflix Australia.

The series brings back old cast favourites Skinny Pete (Charles Baker) and Badger (Matt Jones), as well as direction and script from Vince Gilligan, the creator of Breaking Bad.

“What’s better than one Paul Rudd?” the Internet asked in unison when Living With Yourself was announced in August.

“Two Paul Rudds!” they chimed.

We have to agree.

Unhappy with his life, Miles (Paul Rudd) undergoes a mysterious spa treatment to make him a better person. What actually happens is that he (Paul 1) gets buried, and is replaced with an optimistic, buoyant Paul 2.

With everything at stake, the two fight for their wife Kate (Aisling Bea), career, and splintered identity.

Living With Yourself airs October 18 on Netflix Australia.

It’s been quiet on the Eddie Murphy front for a few years, but the comedy maestro is back, fronting his years-long passion project Dolemite Is My Name.

Based on a true story, the film charts the unlikely rise of struggling comedian Rudy Ray Moore, who rebrands himself as Dolemite: a cane-toting pimp with a flair for the obscene (“Dolemite is my name, and fucking up motherfuckers is my game”).

Joining Eddie Murphy are Keegan-Michael Key, Wesley Snipes, Craig Robinson, Snoop Dogg, T.I. and more.

Dolemite Is My Name airs October 25 on Netflix Australia.
