What’s On TV? – Tuesday (4/9/2019) – Anticipated ‘Fosse/Verdon’ Drops on FX

1

For tonight’s television viewing, two film stars will begin dancing their way through the small screen. But if you’re in the mood for a movie, there are some scary good options. One being an actual horror film and the other being a light comedy in case horror isn’t your thing. Either way, there are all sorts of options for tonight. Take a look at what’s on TV.

PICK OF THE DAY:

“Fosse/Verdon” (FX) at 10 P.M. EST

Based on the troubled relationship between the titular artists, the miniseries “Fosse/Verdon” airs its first episode tonight. The star power of the two main leads should easily make this worth a watch. Oscar winner Sam Rockwell plays Bob Fosse, a famed director, and womanizer. Meanwhile, four-time Oscar nominee Michelle Williams portrays Gwen Verdon, one of Broadway’s most famous performers.

In Alan French’s review of the series, both actors are said to be at the top of their game. In addition, there might be Emmy buzz surrounding them and the overall series. That could be another incentive to watch.

WHAT’S PREMIERING?:

“The Code” (CBS) at 9 P.M. EST

If you’re into courtroom dramas, the new series “The Code” might be up your alley. According to the IMDB synopsis, the series is about the personal and professional lives of some of the military’s brightest legal minds. Also, the pilot was helmed by Marc Webb who directed “(500) Days of Summer” and the “Amazing Spider-Man” films. Given his directorial cred, the series could be off to a strong start.

MOVIES ON TV:

“The Blair Witch Project” (FLIXe) at 8 P.M. EST

This one’s seen as either one of the scariest ever or just plain dull. But love it or hate it, it did help launch the “found footage” genre that would become financially potent. Also, it had a genius marketing campaign during its release and is one of the most profitable films in history. It was made for just $60,000 and had no massive CGI which has become a norm in the horror genre. However, it still can make going to the woods feel not so peaceful.

“13 Going on 30” (Freeform) at 9 P.M. EST

In the same vein as “Big,” “13 Going on 30” is an amusing coming-of-age story about the cons of wanting to grow up too fast. Along with a heartwarming message, it boasts a charismatic performance from Jennifer Garner as Jenna Rink. In addition, Mark Ruffalo plays a swoony romantic lead while Judy Greer is comic gold as Jenna’s frenemy. Plus, it has a young Brie Larson in a small role. Even if you’re not into romantic comedies, this is still a recommended watch. For what it’s worth, it has a superhero movie cast with Elektra, Hulk, Ant-Man’s ex-wife, and Captain Marvel.
