TV Demand: The OA and The Act creating a buzz in Australia & NZ

• For eight weeks the Overall TV Shows chart has been dominated by Game Of Thrones.

For six weeks the Digital Originals chart has seen The Umbrella Academy from Netflix rank #1 on the Digital Originals chart in Australia and New Zealand.

For eight weeks the Overall TV Shows chart has been dominated by Game Of Thrones. Indeed all this year it has been either GoT or Brooklyn Nine-Nine on top of those charts in the two markets.

There was some action a little further down the Digital Originals chart though. The OA arrived on the New Zealand chart last week at #10, but this week is jumps to #3 in that market, the same place on the chart where it is in Australia at the end of this week. Netflix dropped what it is calling Part II on March 22 with eight new episodes. The story revolves around a young blind woman who resurfaces after seven years. She can now see, but refuses to cooperate with her adoptive parents or the FBI. Brit Marling stars and she also co-created the series.

Also new on the Digital Originals is The Act, a US crime drama from Hulu based on real life events starring Patricia Arquette and Chloë Sevigny.

On the Overall TV charts, The OA makes it into the top 10 in both markets.

It seems unlikely that Game Of Thrones will lose top spot at least for the next couple of months.
