With what’s going on in the world, we need TV more than ever. Mostly cause we’re needed indoors now more than ever.
With plenty of time at home, it’s definitely the best time to catch up on television and streaming services are offering a hefty variety of them to go around. We don’t know when all this is going to blow over but for now, here are some new series making their way to streaming services in April.

This Chris Evans starring crime drama series based on a New York Times best-seller follows the story of a family dealing with the accusation that their 14 year old son may be a murderer. “Defending Jacob” looks like a crime drama that would keep you glued to your seat and we can’t wait to see what unfolds in the story.
