1. The twelve-part series, Fatal Voyage: The Mysterious Death of Natalie Wood, is causing a stir. The show investigates the 1981 drowning of actress Natalie Wood. The tragic event was initially ruled as accidental but the case was reopened in 2011 and Natalie's husband (at the time of her death), actor Robert Wagner, was named a "person of interest." The entire series, which some believe could lead to an arrest, is available for binge-listening right now. -- US WEEKLY
