New to Netflix this week comes an exciting thriller starring a few pretty big names, including Stanley Tucci and David Tennant. Inside Man, a four-part serial, originally premiered on BBC One this past September before being released on Netflix on Oct. 31 outside of the UK. If you hadn’t heard of it before this week, we don’t blame you. But now that it’s the number one show on the platform, you might want to get familiar with it!
November’s going to be a big month for Netflix, as Manifest season 4 part 1 premieres this Friday, Nov. 4, and we’ll be getting other big releases such as The Crown season 5, Dead to Me season 3, and Wednesday. But before all the craziness of the month, Inside Man is the biggest show you should consider checking out.
Without giving away spoilers, Inside Man follows two different stories — one of a criminal on death row in an American prison and another of a reverend in England with a dark secret. We learn how these two connect through the four episodes.
