What to Watch: 09/17/2016

It’s a typical slow Saturday, with some cool stuff hidden around in plain sight if you know where to look — even a couple intriguing indie flicks in unlikely places.

Sister Cities, Lifetime, 8p
Four estranged sisters reunite after their mother’s suicide in this indie flick picked up my Lifetime. The film stars Jacki Weaver, Stana Katic, Jess Weixler, Michelle Trachtenberg, and Troian Bellisario.

Mary + Jane [MTV, 8pm]Curious to see how this show about two female weed dealers and their shenanigans will ultimately compare to my first love, Broad City.

Pet Nation Renovation [Animal Planet, 10p]
Shelters can be insanely depressing places, but in this special we meet people whose mission is to make these stressful times more palatable for kitties and puppies awaiting their forever homes.
– BET airs Tahir Jetter’s romantic comedy How To Tell If You’re a Douchebag
– Nicole Byer’s sitcom Totally, Exactly Nicole on MTV has been stilted at times, but the promising comedian seems to be growing into a comfort zone
