Connecting...

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 8 p.m. on NBC

Series Debut

Longtime friends Martin Gero and Brendan Gall team up to tell a story about the unprecedented time we're currently living in. Connecting is an isolation comedy about a group of friends supporting one another through everything 2020 throws at them. From dealing with being stuck indoors with kids 24 hours a day to considering getting back together with an ex while dealing with the loneliness of isolation, the comedy covers a lot of what people have been facing at home. With a mix of humor and more complex territory – the first episode includes a medical professional's brutal honesty about what she and her colleagues are dealing with — Connecting aims to be honest. "All you need to do is see a scene where all seven of our leads are on screen at the same time to see that the show is the furthest thing from feeling isolated," Gall says. "It is the most joyous, wonderful, rhythmic cacophony of laughs, and it's so alive." —Alamin Yohannes

Charm City Kings

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on HBO Max

At 14, Mouse (Jahi Di’Allo Winston) isn’t even old enough to drive, though those aren’t the vehicles he dreams of in Charm City Kings, a sprawling coming-of-age tale on two wheels. All he wants is to be a member of the Midnight Clique, the Baltimore crew with “the best bikes, the best tricks, the best riders” — or nearly all; there’s a pretty girl, too (Chandler DuPont), and the mentorship of Blax (rapper Meek Mill), a former local kingpin turned ace mechanic. Created with the cosign of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, who executive produced the film, Angel Manuel Soto’s drama leans heavily on formula and often bites off more Serious Issues than it can chew, but there’s still charm to spare in its young, kinetic cast. —Leah Greenblatt
