What To Watch: 06/12/2021

It’s a Saturday, and this one’s even more bereft of new programming than most Saturdays, but there is a great PBS doc that maybe we should all watch in honor of Pride Month (or just for being a good member of our civilization). Take it away Katherine.

KATHERINE’S PICK:
The Lavender Scare [PBS, 8p]
This documentary tells how tens of thousands of LGBTQ+ federal works were fired or denied employment in the 1950s, resulting in a labor movement among the gay community.

BUT, WAIT, THERE’S MORE (NOT MUCH REALLY, THOUGH):

  • All the rest of the action is in the LHV (Lifetime Hallmark Vortiex) where both of our main channels have new movies. Hallmark debuts The Baker’s Son. Small town: check! Ruggedly handsome dude: check! Attractive busy businesswoman: check! Seaside views: most definitely check!
  • Lifetime grants us the darker Left For Dead: The Ashley Reeves Story, the true story of a 17-year-old girl found beaten near to death with no memory. During her long recovery, she pieces together the horror bit-by-bit. Lifetime movie contract player Jennie Garth plays the mom.
