Beverly Hills, CA -- Netflix opened the Summer 2016 Television Critics Association tour yesterday with a full schedule of sessions and activities that will collectively prove to be a tough act to follow for the networks and other programming services scheduled to appear here during the next 16 days. (Actually, National Geographic Channel kicked off the tour on Tuesday night. More about that in a future report.) Unlike its memorable day at the Winter 2016 tour, which featured panels for many existing Netflix shows like "Marvel’s Jessica Jones," "Grace and Frankie" and "Orange is the New Black," yesterday was all about upcoming projects, including the continuation of "Gilmore Girls" (a four-part, six-hour limited series titled "Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life," set to debut in November) and the latest addition to its lineup of Marvel shows, "Luke Cage." The lone exception was a session with the cast and creators of the supernatural thriller "Stranger Things," which debuted earlier this month on Netflix. It proved to be the most popular session of the day.
