Netflix continues to expand its impressive library of new movie and TV streaming options available for viewing in March 2015. As winter winds down and spring approaches, the streaming media giant will continue to offer subscribers a wide array of entertainment options that include classic movies and programming, Netflix original content, as well as new TV show and movie releases. Here are some of the new streaming options available for viewing on Netflix in March 2015.
On March 1, the streaming service will make a Robin Williams’ classic film available for viewing in the form of 1998’s Patch Adams. Williams’ suicide and medical diagnosis of early Parkinson’s disease in August 2014 shocked the world. The entertainment industry lost a tremendous talent and mankind lost a great spirit who inspired laughter, but at least his wide body of work will live on so fans–old and new–can continue to be entertained by the talented thespian. Moreover, Netflix will also add to its collection one of Williams’ last films, The Angriest Man in Brooklyn (2014), on March 9. While Patch Adams is based on a true life account of a physician’s personal and professional journey, The Angriest Man in Brooklyn features Williams as an acerbic and tyrannical character faced with his own mortality and life choices. Both films offer a unique perspective on the late, great comic’s acting range.
Additional new streaming options available for viewing on Netflix in March 2015 include 2004’s Finding Neverland, which was based on events from J.M. Barrie’s life and his inspiration to create Peter Pan. The film starred Kate Winslet (Titanic) and Johnny Depp (Edward Scissorhands). It will become available for streaming on March 1. Also on tap to join Netflix on March 1, the 1989 teen classic flick, Teen Witch, which starred Robyn Lively (Major Crimes) and Dan Gauthier (One Life to Live). The film centers around a bullied high school girl who discovers she is descended from witches and looks to settle the score with her classmates.
On March 6, three Netflix originals will be added to its extensive content library including My Own Man (2014), Aziz Ansari: Live at Madison Square Garden (2015), and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (2015). This new series was created by 30 Rock‘s Tina Fey and Robert Carloc. Moreover, Kimmy Schmidt is also a new starring vehicle for Ellie Kemper of Bridesmaids and The Office fame. The comedy focuses on a former cult member who starts life anew in New York City. The series was originally intended to air on NBC, but it was later acquired by Netflix.
Some of the mid-month new streaming options available for viewing on Netflix in March 2015 include the complete series runs of two successful, classic NBC comedies, A Different World and 3rd Rock From the Sun, which will both join the Netflix collection on March 15. A Different World was a spin-off of The Cosby Show, which featured Lisa Bonet’s Denise Huxtable going off to fictional Hillman College. Meanwhile, 3rd Rock From the Sun launched the career of a young thespian named Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Don Juan). On March 19, the documentary and real-life account of Roger Ebert’s experience following his debilitating battles with cancer is chronicled in Life Itself (2014). The documentary is also inspired by Ebert’s autobiography of the same name, which was originally published in 2011.
As winter winds down and spring approaches, Netflix has many new streaming options available for viewing in March 2015. Additional new titles that will help round out the streaming media giant’s offerings for viewing in the month that welcomes spring include the Season 7 addition of the AMC juggernaut series, Mad Men, on March 22, Pierce Brosnan in the 2014 spy thriller, The November Man, on March 23, as well as the Season 1 release of AMC’s new colonial war drama, Turn, on March 25. As the weather begins to thaw, Netflix will continue to add new TV and movie streaming options available for viewing in March 2015 to keep viewers at home.
