Tales Of The City (streams on June 7) — Inspired by the books of Armistead Maupin, this Netflix Original Limited Series, Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City, begins a new chapter in the story.

Trinkets (streams on June 14) — When three teenage girls from different corners of the high school cafeteria find themselves in the same mandated Shoplifter’s Anonymous meeting, an unlikely friendship forms.
