Netflix Announces Five Non-Scripted Series Renewals

'Dope,' 'Drug Lords,' 'Nailed It!,' 'Queer Eye' and 'The Toys That Mad Us'

Netflix has announced second season renewals for a quintet of five non-scripted series: “Dope,” “Drug Lords,” “Nailed It!,” “Queer Eye” and “The Toys That Made Us.”

“These series are indicative of what we’re trying to accomplish for Netflix unscripted: working with world-class producers to create the best unscripted shows on television,” said Bela Bajaria, Vice President of Content for Netflix. “These series elevate the genre with innovative takes on familiar formats. They deliver immersive and nuanced stories. They elicit so many emotions from viewers, from tears of laughter to tears of joy – and that’s just Queer Eye.”

“Dope” is a docuseries filmed from the perspective of drug dealers, users and the police. “Drug Lords” tells the stories of history’s most notorious kingpins, their terrifying enforcers, and the men and women who’ve sworn to bring them down. “Nailed It!,” hosted by Nicole Byer and Jacques Torres, features home bakers with a terrible track record who take a shot at re-creating edible masterpieces for a $10,000 prize. “Queer Eye” follows Antoni Porowski, Bobby Berk, Karamo Brown, Jonathan Van Ness and Tan France as they do makeovers. And “The Toys That Made Us” follows the minds behind history’s most-iconic toy franchises as they discuss the rise – and sometimes fall – of their billion dollar creations.
