Portals to Hell

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 10 p.m. on the Travel Channel

Long obsessed with the supernatural, Jack Osbourne is living out his dreams as cohost and EP of this series. In the latest episode, he and paranormal researcher Katrina Weidman investigate a real-life Phantom of the Opera in McConnelsville, Ohio, where a “deeper mystery” is brewing in the local opera house basement, teases Weidman. That’s where Osbourne was targeted. “I was totally fine, awake, and alert at one point, and in the next, I felt like I’d been drugged,” he says. “Every ounce of energy felt like it was drained out of me…whatever happened was incredibly strange.” —Gerrad Hall

Tuca & Bertie

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix

Series Debut
It’s fitting that Netflix’s adult animated comedy Tuca & Bertie comes after Broad City concluded. “[Broad City] was the first time I felt fully represented by a TV show…so it’s a huge influence,” says Tuca & Bertie creator Lisa Hanawalt. But while that Comedy Central series traced Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer’s journey through their 20s, Hanawalt wanted to capture women in their 30s. Tuca (Tiffany Haddish) is a carefree toucan living next door to her anxiety-ridden songbird bestie Bertie (Ali Wong), as the two navigate adulthood. “If you don’t have your sh— together by a certain age, you start to feel like you’re left behind,” Hanawalt says, “and that’s a feeling I wanted to tap into.” Who (tou)can’t relate to that? —Piya Sinha-Roy
