What will March bring to Netflix? Plenty of great TV shows, some killer recent and classic movies, and a slew of highly anticipated Netflix Originals.
First off, there's more amazing TV coming to Netflix in March than we've seen in the past six, with new seasons of "Mad Men," "Glee," and "Archer" coming to the streaming service. What's more? The complete series of "3rd Rock From the Sun" (Yes!) and "A Different World" are also being added. For the latter, I plan on queueing up some "very special episodes" that remind me of my childhood. Also, Marisa Tomei was on it. Remember?! In addition to the shows you know, some spankin' new Netflix Originals are being added: Tina Fey's half-hour comedy "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," starring "The Office's" Ellie Kemper, and "Bloodline," a dramatic thriller starring Oscar-winner Sissy Spacek.
In terms of movies, Netflix is not disappointing. Recent releases »

Filmmaker Adam Shankman has signed on to direct Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage in the Paramount Pictures comedy O'Lucky Day. We first reported on the project back in October 2013 when Peter Dinklage signed on, but this is the first we're hearing of the new title. The actor is set to play a con man who may or may not be an actual leprechaun, although he successfully passes off as one.
Andrew Dodge, who wrote last year's R-rated comedy Bad Words starring Jason Bateman, wrote the original draft of the script, with Damian Shannon and Mark Swift (Friday the 13th, Freddy vs. Jason) providing the most recent rewrite. Production is scheduled to start this April, after Peter Dinklage wraps up work on Season 5 of Game of Thrones.
Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage has signed on to join Melissa McCarthy in the upcoming Universal Pictures comedy Michelle Darnell. We first reported on this project back in January, when Universal set an April 8, 2016 release date. Melissa McCarthy will play the title character, described as "a titan of industry" who is arrested and sent to prison for insider trading. After her stint behind bars, she emerges ready to rebrand herself as "America's sweetheart," only to find that several people she screwed over aren't quite ready to let her off the hook.
No specific details were given for Peter Dinklage's character, but Variety reports he will play the main antagonist. Universal was trying to decide if a male or female actor would be the right fit for this role, since the studio was more interested in finding the right actor or actress who could "chew up every scene he or she is in. »
