Lost Girls is the Netflix drama we're all going to be hooked on next month

This looks brilliant.

How many times have you flicked through Netflix not knowing what to stick on?

It happens to me all the time and often I just end up throwing on a TV show that I've watched hundreds of times before.

If you're on the hunt for a new show to get stuck into and are a fan of mystery dramas, Lost Girls is one Netflix show you'll want to check out.

With a fantastic cast including Amy Ryan and Gabriel Byrne, Lost Girls follows a mother's quest to find her missing daughter.

Based on a true story when 24-year-old Shannan Gilbert mysteriously disappears one night, her mother Mari embarks on a dark journey that finds her face to face with hard truths about her daughter, herself, and police bias.

Determined to find her daughter at all costs, Mari Gilbert retraces Shannan's last known steps, driving her own investigation to an insular gated community near the desolate outer banks of Long Island.


Her discoveries force law enforcement and the media to uncover more than a dozen unsolved murders of sex workers, young lives Mari will not let the world forget.

Inspired by Robert Kolker's best-selling nonfiction book of the same name Lost Girls is a gripping tale of every parent's worse nightmare brought to life.

True crime dramas have become huge in the last year but I feel a story like this will really resonate hard with parents as heartbreaking and maybe even a little too close to home.

I know there have been some missing children shows in the past that I have avoided because I felt they would be too upsetting but I think I will try episode one of Lost Girls and see how I get on.

Lost Girls hits Netflix next month on March 13.
