Freshman Congresswomen and meme queen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is headed to Netflix. The streaming service said this week that it has snapped up ‘Knock Down the House,’ a Sundance award-winning documentary profiling the campaigns of four female progressive candidates, including Ocasio-Cortez, in the 2018 midterm election.

The documentary raised money via a Kickstarter campaign last year and it grabbed the Festival Favorite Award at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, beating 121 other contenders to land the highest number of audience votes.

That acclaim and the rising star of Ocasio-Cortez looks to have made the picture a hot commodity. Deadline reports that Netflix is spending $10 million to secure the film, a price that — if true — would make it the most expensive Sundance documentary deal to date

So I have to be honest, I know nothing of this lady other than stuff i've read here. She seems pretty ridiculous though.

I've noticed netflix shows tend to have a progressive agenda behind them. Even series that didn't really start that way seem to become more and more so as they continue. They seemed pretty desperate to get her documentary.

Not surprising. Netflix gave the Obamas the OK to produce docu-series, documentaries and features. Why anyone would want to shell out $10M on a documentary on four progressive candidates, is beyond me. Perhaps it's because they're women, or maybe there's a real interest to find out how Ocasio-Cortez became such an enlightened, intelligent socialist

This is getting comical.

Or maybe it's because it's a well produced documentary that has a lot of hype behind it and Netflix knows they'll make a lot of money off of it. Just because you don't like the subject matter doesn't mean it's a bad documentary.

Just look at a documentary like Jiro Dreams of Sushi. On paper a movie about an 85-year old sushi master doesn't sound particularly interesting but it's one of the greatest documentaries of at least the past decade.

Not even for comic relief would I watch that.

Besides the facts she's not too bright and seems to be constantly going on and on about things, I really have no idea why she gets so much media attention.....unless of course the MSM is trying to push her socialist/communist agendas.

They're going to succeed where Venezuela failed by doing it bigger and better!

She's popular, young, and personable. Even the right likes to talk about her, even if it's with complete dislike.

Not surprising that Netflix shows lean a little more to the left sometimes...

Most shows do now a days and a lot of Hollywood types are liberals.. Also, how many comedians are heavily conservative?

I'll find this progressive trend surprising when the entertainment industry is filled with funny Republicans..

What do you expect from the same people that pay the Obamas, and create shows like Dear white people.

According to Cortez.

That 70% of the $10 million belongs to the state.

She should lead by example.

Kind of curious to see how many more meme's come from the documentary.

I mean, she has to speak in this documentary, right?

They'll be enough to fund an expansion building of the Library of Congress 😊
