Like January, February’s Netflix documentaries are a little on the light side. Once again, six new titles are landing on the platform. But even though we don’t have a plethora of docs to dive into that doesn’t mean there isn’t a fine selection to choose from.
Kicking the month off is Gunther’s Millions, a docuseries about a dog who inherited a trust fund after his eccentric owner’s passing. Said handler lived a luxurious life and had a cult-like entourage.
Following the doc’s premiere, subscribers can anticipate a new documentary releasing nearly every Wednesday. They’ll mostly be sports docs like the one on NBA legend and Civil Rights icon Bill Russell, a dive into the lives of professional golfers on and off the course, and the latest season of Formula 1: Drive to Survive.
If those don’t fit your taste there’s African Queens: Njinga. Executive produced by Jada Pinkett-Smith, this docuseries examines the lives of prominent African queens. The first season focuses on Njinga, the warrior queen of Ndongo and Matamba who ruled in 17th century. She was her nation’s first female sovereign and was known for her blend of political and diplomatic skill paired with her military prowess.
And, if you’re looking for a true crime docuseries about a famous case there’s Murdaugh Murders: A Southern Scandal which is about a prominent South Carolina family and a double homicide that reveals a century’s worth of corruption and cover-ups in the Low Country.
