An enlightening experience has made its way onto the streaming service.
There are many great things about Broken, and one of them is certainly its narrator.
Let's face it. Netflix has swiftly become a haven for documentary enthusiasts - like seriously. This year, they've put out so many intriguing and exciting titles, from Fyre to The Devil Next Door. If docs are your thing, you'll never exhaust their vast and varied selection.
Sure, they've had some misfires, but efforts like The Great Hack, American Factory, Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese and more have made it a year for the books.
The latest to make waves on the streaming service is Broken...

She recently posted about the show, writing: " You probably don’t want to get off the couch today (and hopefully you don’t have to), so take this opportunity to binge BROKEN on @netflix! It’s a fascinating investigation into the true price of low prices—and I’m THRILLED(!!!!!) that it’s my first long-form series as a narrator. Huge shoutout to @sarahholmholmes for directing/writing two super episodes and being an amazing cheerleader."
