Inventing Anna

Inventing Anna premiered on Netflix over a month ago and we still can’t get enough of Anna Delvey’s wild story. She spent years pretending to be a rich German heiress before being sent to jail for defrauding banks, hotels, and her wealthy acquaintances.

The Dropout

Elizabeth Holmes became a household name thanks to the early success of her company Theranos, which promised to revolutionize blood-testing technology. This series starring Amanda Seyfried tracks her rise and fall after it turned out her company was a massive fraud.


WeWork was one of the most valuable startups at the time of its founding, but its wild early success was followed by an even wilder downfall. This series chronicles the ups and downs of this controversial company, its eccentric founder Adam Neumann (Jared Leto), and his chaotic relationship with his wife Rebekah Neumann (Anne Hathaway).
