Making the Cut

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Amazon Prime Video

Series Debut

Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn are going global with their new fashion design competition. While part of the 10-episode season will be in New York — gone are the days of Parsons and fabric store Mood, as seen on her previous show Project Runway, as well as her “auf Wiedersehen” send-off (“I did not want to do the same thing again,” Klum tells EW) — Klum & co. are now circling the globe, also taking the show to Paris and Tokyo. Twelve designers — some who already have celebrity clientele, others who are are fresh talent — are competing in a variety of challenges, and the winning look from each episode, two of which will premiere each Friday, will be available immediately via Amazon Fashion's Making the Cut store. As for the winner, Klum has upped the ante, awarding one person $1 million! “I asked for a lot of things over at Amazon. One of the things they said yes to was the million dollars for the winner,” Klum says, laughing. Point being, have Heidi Klum negotiate your next pay raise. —Gerrad Hall

Trixie Mattel: Moving Parts

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix

We know, we know: the higher the hair, the closer to God. But, in times of loneliness, isolation, and global panic, the world — even one saturated with hair as tall as Trixie Mattel’s sky-scraping wigs — can feel like a godless place. But the RuPaul’s Drag Race icon and recording artist’s moving documentary ditches the death-dropping antics in favor of a lived-in, highly personal portrait touching on the temporary dissolution of the All-Stars 3 champion’s relationship with her frequent collaborator (and UNHhhh costar) Katya, while the latter seeks help for substance abuse. The end result is a colorful, honest emotional journey less about the cutthroat struggle of being the baddest bitch in the drag world and more about the endurance of friendship through unimaginable obstacles. —Joey Nolfi

Portrait of a Lady on Fire

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Hulu

Social distancing presents the perfect opportunity to finally begin your journey into world cinema, and Hulu now has the perfect place to start with last year's stunning Portrait of a Lady on Fire, from French writer-director Céline Sciamma. This ravishing 18th-century romance follows an artist named Marianne (Noémie Merlant), who journeys to a remote seaside villa to paint a wedding portrait of Héloïse (Adèle Haenel). The trouble is, she must paint in secret as Héloïse refuses to sit for a portrait. What follows is a tremendous, ahem, slow burn as the passions of both women bubble ever more toward the surface. As compelling as its love story is, though, Portrait has more on its mind: women's erasure from art history, the relationship between gaze and desire, the relationship between artist and subject — and it's one of the most gorgeous-looking movies you'll see this or any other year. This is one foreign-language film you could enjoy almost as much with the subtitles off. —Tyler Aquilina

After three weeks in Hollywood, the American Idol team — judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan, host Ryan Seacrest, and mentor Bobby Bones — have packed their bags (or their assistants probably did, but I digress) and are saying “aloha” to Hawaii. There, the Top 40 contestants will perform in a concert, hoping to secure a spot in the Top 20. (UPDATE: ABC announced Friday that the Hawaii episode will now be split in two, with the second part airing April 5). If you’ve been watching, you know there are some stellar singers and musicians this season, and several of them could take the whole thing. But first…that tropical getaway, which is the perfect quarantine viewing if we’ve ever seen it. —Gerrad Hall
