If you have anywhere from two to 23 hours to kill, this week’s new Netflix’s offerings have a little something for everyone:

“Dangerous Lies”

Camila Mendes (“Riverdale”) stars in this B-thriller about a young caregiver to an elderly man who passes away and leaves her to inherit his entire estate, which ends up putting her in lots of danger. No, it’s not “Knives Out” (probably in many ways), but it might be a good way to pass a couple of hours. April 30

“Hollywood” (Limited Series)

Ryan Murphy, the creator/producer of such TV favs as “Nip/Tuck,” “Glee,” “American Horror Story,” and “9-1-1,” releases his first big entry since inking a five-year, $300 million deal with Netflix in 2018. This highly anticipated miniseries follows stories set during a reimagined Hollywood Golden Age. This one is sure to be good. May 1

“All Day and a Night”

This street drama starring Jeffrey Wright and Ashton Sanders (who played Teen Chilton in the Oscar-winning “Moonlight”) is about a young man’s time spent in prison after committing murder, as he looks back on his childhood circumstances for clues about his past and future. The storyline employs some familiar tropes, but it is written and directed by “Black Panther” writer Joe Robert Cole. May 1

“The Half of It”

It took writer-director Alice Wu 15 years to make a follow-up to “Saving Face,” her feature film debut. This coming-of-age dramedy is about a shy Asian girl named Ellie, who lives in a small town and is hired by the school jock to help him get a date with a girl, not knowing that Ellie has a crush on the same girl. Life lessons ensue. May 1

“Jerry Seinfeld: 23 Hours to Kill”

We could all use a good laugh or two nowadays, and the famous comedian is back with a new stand-up special, the second in a two-part deal that Seinfeld signed with Netflix in 2017. It was filmed at the Beacon Theater in New York City during the star’s residency at the famous venue. May 5.
