The Princess Switch: Switched Again

The original cast, director, and screenwriters from Netflix’s surprise hit The Princess Switch have reunited for The Princess Switch: Switched Again to offer fan service for at-home viewers.  But even though the production remembers what tickled audiences the first time around, they have failed to capture the same spark in this rusty sequel.

Coffee & Kareem

Director Michael Dowse comes from an eclectic filmography, but he’s becoming the go-to guy for mainstream fare.
