The thespiatic forces behind Tracy Flick, Olivia Pope, Moe Szyslak, and Freddy Krueger all return to the air in debuts (series or season) today along with perhaps the most Freeform-y Freeform show ever.
Little Fires Everywhere [Hulu]
Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington combine as mothers (and co-producers of the series, bee tee dubs) whose paths cross inside a subdivision in this creepy looking thriller based on a Celeste Ng novel.
Brockmire [IFC, 10p]
The politically incorrect yet charming-enough-to-escape-cancel-culture, reluctantly small-town sports announcer continues to blunder and drink his way though life while somehow finding wisdom, now back for a 4th and final season.
ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:
- Representing Freeform at its most Freeform, Motherland: Fort Salem, is an alternative reality sci-fi show which posits the notion that those accused in that 17th Century Massachusetts town truly were witches — supernatural beings who would fight to form America, making the country what it is in 2020 — well, its version of 2020. Did we mention it’s on Freeform?
- The man who donned the Red & Green sweater and gardening shears to play one of cinema’s greatest monsters (and who also memorably ate a rat in V) hosts what looks to be an anthology drama of ripped-from-the-Ripley’s-headlines with True Terror with Robert Englund — even more bizarre, it’s on the Travel Channel.
- We’re still a bit curious as to why Lena Waithe’s extremely well reviewed, semi-autobiographical series, Twenties, on BET is making so few waves. Well, the three-letter reason might be in there somewhere.
