Netflix will spend $ 8 billion this year on content production — more than the annual budgets of some small but proud countries. With this money, the company is going to make 700 original films and TV shows. It is the quantity that the service plans to attract new subscribers and, of course, keep the old ones (while Amazon and Disney are on their heels). Hopefully, not at the expense of quality. In the meantime, we offer you a selection of 5 Netflix TV shows that you don’t mind spending time on.
