Netflix's new thriller looks tailor-made for anyone that loves Dirty John and You

This looks certain to be a hit.

We'll be perfectly honest. Netflix struck gold when they released You and Dirty John in such a short space of time because they proved to be incredibly popular with viewers.

Let's be honest, they're sexy trash but trash is good.

Trash is what you want to watch when you need to switch off your brain. Trash is knowing how dumb certain decisions are and still going along with them. Trash is the endearing charm of Joey Tribbiani-esque 'eyebrow acting' and loving it.

Trash is what the people want and in Netflix's new erotic thriller, What/If, Bridget Jones herself is back to demand the attention of a global audience.

Ok, what's the new ten-part miniseries about?

What/If a mysterious stranger made you an offer too extraordinary to refuse? From Revenge creator Mike Kelley, What/If stars Renée Zellweger as ultimate game player, Anne Montgomery. When Anne presents a young, cash-strapped couple with an incredible opportunity, they have to decide what they're willing to risk for a chance to have it all.

The other main actress in the show is Jane Levy (Don't Breath, The Evil Dead).

To be clear, we're big fans of trash TV but if you're looking for something that adds a bit more gravitas to the show, it's worth remembering that Zellweger is an Oscar-winning actress (Cold Mountain) and she also received Oscar nominations for Chicago and Bridget Jones's Diary.

Zellweger has also won awards and received nominations for her performances in the likes of Miss Potter, Nurse Betty, and Jerry Maguire.

Having seen the trailer for her new show, it's obvious that the creators are very much in tune with what modern audiences want because they're clearly tapping into the market that has proven to be so lucrative for You and Dirty John.

What/If is available to watch on Netflix from 24 May.

Take a look at what's in store.
