Let It Fall: Los Angeles 1982-1992

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

Originally airing in 2017, for the 25th anniversary of the L.A. riots, this John Ridley-directed documentary examines the 1992 uprising in Los Angeles following the Rodney King verdict, when all four officers charged with assaulting him were acquited and three of the four were acquited on charges of using excessive force (the jury could not agree on the excessive force charge against the fourth officer). As protests continue across the country, this film — featuring a new introduction by John Legend — offers valuable insight into the history of race relations and law enforcement, including candid and emotional interviews with eyewitnesses and people involved in and affected by the events that left more than 50 people dead across the city. —Gerrad Hall

One Day at a Time

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 9:30 p.m. on Pop TV

Is blood thicker than politics? This is the question posed on One Day at a Time’s animated special that’ll see extended members of the Alvarez family come for a weeklong visit with their conservative opinions flying all over the place. Gloria Estefan and Melissa Fumero return to the roles of Tia Mirtha and Estrellita, respectively, with the addition of Lin-Manuel Miranda portraying Tio Juanito.

Estefan and Rita Moreno, who play sisters, will duet on a new version of the former’s hit song “Mi Tierra,” and Miranda brings Hamilton out to play. There’s a lot of bickering and outlandish opinions, which is all typical of a Cuban family reunion the world over. —Rosy Cordero
