TV Demand: Tiger King and Money Heist headline busy week

• Little Fires Everywhere and Devs is also on the charts

Ozark and Brooklyn Nine-Nine have maintained their spots on top of the TV Demand charts for Australia and New Zealand ending several weeks of consistent movement in the #1 spots. However, while the movement at the top has ended there has been considerable movement lower down the charts this week.

The most notable new entry is Netflix’s true-crime documentary series Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness which has made its way onto the digital original charts in Australia after being released on March 20. According to Nielsen ratings, the limited series was watched by 34.3 million people globally over its first ten days of release, making it one of Netflix’s most successful releases to date. The shows main focus is on the life of zookeeper Joe Exotic and other people in the world of big cats. 

Netflix also has an international entry to the Digital Original charts in Australia and NZ with La casa de apple also known as Money Heist on Netflix in Australia. Part four of the series was released on Netflix on April 3. The Spanish TV show created by Álex Pina for Antena 3 was initially intended to be a limited series told in two parts but was extended once Netflix acquired the global streaming rights in 2017 and the show was re-cut and extended. 

Little Fires Everywhere has also snuck into the Digital Originals chart in Australia. The mini series premiered on Hulu on March 20 and is based on the 2017 novel of the same name by Celeste Ng. The series stars Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington, and the story is set in Shaker Heights, Ohio during the late 1990s, and follows two mothers from different socioeconomic backgrounds.

In NZ Devs has made its way onto the Digital Originals chart after the mini-series premiered on March 5, on Hulu, as part of FX on Hulu. The show revolves around a computer engineer who investigates a quantum computing company that she believes is responsible for the disappearance of her boyfriend. The show can be watched in Australia on Foxtel’s Fox Showcase channel.
