Rejoice, Netflix subscribers, for your new true crime obsession is here. The new movies and shows on Netflix this week includes the true crime show you've been waiting for. Evil Genius: The True Story of America's Most Diabolical Bank Heist is a miniseries about a 2003 bank robbery, also known as the "pizza bomber heist," in which a pizza delivery man robbed a Pennsylvania bank with a bomb collar around his neck. The year-long investigation that followed the incident was full of wild twists and turns, and as such, the new show it the perfect thing to watch if you've already finished Wild WildCountry and need something new to sate your true crime-loving heart.
If, however, true crime isn't your thing, the week of May 7 is also bringing not one, but two new comedy specials to Netflix. One comes from comedian Ali Wong, following up her 2016 special Ali Wong: Baby Cobra with Ali Wong: Hard Knock Wife. The other is from Hari Kondabolu, the comedian who might just change The Simpsons for good thanks to his documentary The Problem with Apu. The new stuff on Netflix this week ranges from the horrifically true to the hilariously funny, and that's not even looking at everything in between.
