5. Fuller House

Who doesn’t remember the 90s ‘Full House’? In a continuation of the series, where DJ, Stephanie, Kimmy and Kimmy’s daughter move into the house to help DJ raise her sons. This heartfelt show is rife with moments that teach us what’s really important in life. The cheesy humour of the show works for its characters in sunny San Francisco. This Netflix spin-off is definitely one to watch with the kids in your house!

Apart from acting, Priyanka Chopra, who is also UNICEF’s Goodwill Embassador is known for her various social campaigns.
