Netflix, February 23
Momofuku mastermind and Mind of a Chef alum David Chang is getting back on the airwaves with this new Netflix series.

Before she was famous for playing a diabetic Southern belle, Los Angeles call girl, serial engagement-breaker, and feisty paralegal, Julia Roberts made her breakthrough in the 1988 coming-of-age flick Mystic Pizza.
