Now that you’ve binge-watched Tiger King more than a few times, you’re probably ready for something new. Luckily, Netflix has a bunch of new content coming this week. Whether you’re looking for a new mockumentary sitcom, another true crime docu-series, or an animated movie for your kids, the streaming service has something for you.

On Friday, April 17, #blackAF starring Kenya Barris and Rashida Jones hits Netflix. The comedy is in the style of a documentary and follows the fictional Barris family as the daughter films her parents and siblings wherever they go. It plays like a celebrity reality show and looks hilarious. Definitely worth checking out when you need a laugh.

If you’re more in the mood for another docu-series, you might want to check out The Innocence Files which comes out Wednesday, April 15.  The series features eight wrongfully convicted people and shows how The Innocence Project helped them get their convictions overturned. Some of these people were in prison for decades before being released.

Or maybe you’re looking for something a little more lighthearted for your kids to watch. You’re in luck because Despicable Me comes to Netflix on Thursday, April 16. The film was the beginning of minions mania! If you’ve never seen it, it follows a criminal mastermind, Gru, as he tries to use three young girls for his big plans. Little does he know they’ll end up changing his evil ways.
