10 New and Returning Original Series Coming To Netflix In 2014

Netflix didn't invent binge TV-watching, but the on-demand subscription service has certainly hooked people on the instant gratification that comes with plowing through an entire batch of episodes over a short span. Now that Netflix is heavily invested in the content game with shows such as House of Cards (Season 2 was released on Feb. 14), Orange is the New Black, Arrested Development and even Lilyhammer, the power dynamics in the television industry are changing and consumers are benefiting for once.

Wondering what other shows Netflix's has coming down the pipe? Uproxx.com profiles 10 series that the streaming media company is involved with.

 

A First Look at Vice News With Shane Smith

It has a show on HBO and has done special segments for CNN and other news outlets -- now formerly Montreal-based media company Vice is in the final stages of launching its own news bureaus around the world. The company has always done hard news stories, even from its early days as a Montreal street paper, but this is the first time it has allocated such a huge investment into news content.

With a strong following on YouTube and an eye for edgy stories that are not getting airtime anywhere else, Shane Smith and his Vice cohorts already have a lot in their favour. Given their track record, they should continue to be able to appeal to their core audience, while also growing their brand and solidifying their reputation within new demographics.

 

Stream of the Week: Kevin Drew -- Good Sex

Broken Social Scene member Kevin Drew's lyrics may sound a little simplistic on his new single, Good Sex, but it's got that instantly recognizable BSS sound, even though this is a solo project for the frontman. Good Sex may fall short in the lyrical department, but that doesn't mean it isn't worth a listen. Arts & Crafts will release Darlings on March 18. A remix from Beatology is also available to stream.

 

Video of the Week: Nardwuar vs Diplo

From his radio show at Vancouver college station CiTR and his spots on MuchMusic, to his current King of the Internet status, Nardwuar is one of Canada's treasures. While he has always had a certain knack for digging deeper and knowing more about music than most people could imagine, Nardwuar has really managed to leverage the web and expose himself to whole new audiences.

Whether he is hanging with Snoop or talking chicken and waffles with Earl Sweatshirt, the quirky host has been winning himself legions of loyal fans through YouTube. In one of his better recent interviews (and that's saying a lot), he chats with Mad Decent tastemaker Diplo about weird bands from Florida, MIA and how so many things in his life are connected to Vancouver.
