Stream On: What’s New To Netflix For August 2020

As indoor ennui takes hold of at-home audiences for yet another month, Netflix hopes to nab the attention of captive audiences with their new batch of offerings. This August, the streaming service offers famous franchises, classic comedies, awesome actioners, new seasons of beloved favorites, and a few high-profile pics featuring A-listers.

On Aug. 7, Sabrina Carpenter and comedian YouTuber Liza Koshy star in Work It, a coming-of-age dance comedy about a high schooler who must win a dance off if she wishes to get into her first-pick school.

Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt star as a local cop and a vet with a vendetta in Project Power. Set in New Orleans, where crime levels have reached new heights due to a new superhero pill that offers amazing new powers with each dose.  The two fight fire with fire, using the pill to track down the culprits who are making it. Project Power will debut on Aug. 14.

Fans of Avatar will delight in Books 1 – 4 of The Legend of Korra, which will be available on Aug. 14.
