Love Groundhog Day? How about the recent Happy Death Day? You’ll probably love Netflix’s upcoming Originals series Russian Doll created and starring Natasha Lyonne.
Lyonne plays Nadia, she’ll die a lot. She’ll return too. Dying at a party in New York City but why? When she finally tries to piece together the pieces of the jigsaw she meets someone else going through the same living nightmare.
The show is certainly darkly comedic with a twist that Nadia always seems to meet someone in the same predicament as her. Are they just living the best they can and everyone is stuck in this never-ending loop? We love adding those little extras just to help the show or film rise above previous shows. This show has the makings to be another must see binge-watch for the streaming giants.
