The Short Game, a new documentary Netflix acquired last month, is now available for streaming on the service.
The film follows the lives of a handful of “the best 7-year old golfers in the world” as they train to compete in the World Championships of Junior Golf. It’s produced by Rafael Marmor, Christopher Leggett, and Josh Greenbaum, and executive produced by Jessica Biel, Justin Timberlake, Timm Oberwelland, John Battsek and David Frankel.
As Netflix indicated that it would earlier this year, we’re really starting to see the company bring more and more original documentaries and stand-up comedy specials to its service. Coming soon is The Square, which Netflix announced just ahead of The Short Game, and it’s already generating Oscar buzz. Netflix’s efforts have already been paying off in awards and nominations.
This week, Netflix announced yet another upcoming documentary with Mitt, which follows Mitt Romney on the campaign trail for the presidential election.
Netflix also announced yet another original series this week with BoJack Horseman. This one is animated, and features Arrested Development’s Will Arnett and Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul.
Friday will see the release of the second season of the series that started it all: Lilyhammer.
