Netflix is setting #NewYearNewMe goals that aren’t going to make us roll our eyes. Following the massive success of their original programming like The Crown
, Orange Is The New Black
, and Stranger Things
the online streaming platform is ready to venture into reality TV.

, the entertainment giant is committing a whopping $6 billion to new programming in 2017. They are producing more than 1,000 hours of contact (that’s more content than all episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians
combined) and 20 unscripted shows next year.
