Netflix has come a long way since its early beginnings. Do you remember the days when it was a mail service? That's when you would select a movie or two that you wanted to watch, put it on your list and eventually the DVDs would show up in your mailbox.

Even though Netflix still offers the mail service, it's mostly known as a streaming service these days. It has also expanded its library to go beyond movies by adding TV series and original content.

You're not going to believe the premise of one of its upcoming reality shows. It involves trying to convince someone to actually commit murder.

Shocking new reality show on Netflix

Reality television has been around for a couple decades now. Let's face it, we've pretty much seen it all over the years. The good, the bad and the ugly.

That's why it seems show producers are trying to come up with more and more shocking storylines. There's a new series about to premiere on Netflix that might be too disturbing for some.

I'm talking about a show called "The Push." It features illusionist Derren Brown and has a very twisted concept.

The show is a combination of paid actors along with a person who doesn't know what is going on. The ultimate goal is to get the unwitting person to commit murder. Yep, you read that right, commit murder.

The actors on the show play along during chaotic events and try to manipulate the unsuspecting individual to kill someone. The plot is very involved. Watch the following trailer to get a look at what's to come.

This isn't Brown's first venture at trying to trick someone into committing murder. He created a show years ago called "The Assassin." In that show, he would hypnotize someone and try convincing them to kill another actor.

Of course, in both of Brown's shows, the murder isn't actually going to take place. It's just a social experiment to see if people are capable of being convinced to commit this horrible act. It might be interesting to see how it plays out.
