Every year in January, TV-show makers gather to share their upcoming slates of shows and movies at the Television Critics Association tour. This year, Netflix decided to eschew the program and instead struck out on its own to announce what's coming to the streaming service next with a big press extravaganza in New York. It's an interesting move for Netflix, which has grown its bank of original content, shrunk its stock of old films, and ballooned its subscriber base to 93 million subscribers.
Here's what's coming so far. We'll update this post further as new shows are announced throughout the day:
