“Poker Face” premieres on the Peacock streaming channel on January 26. It’s a “case of the week” thriller comedy drama. NATASHA LYONNE43, which produces the sequence and she or he stars in it (I collect she performs the one actor who will seem in all 10 episodes).

A stunning variety of Jewish thespians will star in an episode: together with Lyonne: JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT41, ADRIAN BRODY49, ELLEN BARKIN68, SIMON HELBERG41, JUDITH’S LIGHT73, s TIM BLAKE NELSON58. (I’ve this picture, in my thoughts, of Lyonne telling the casting folks: “Rent extra Jews, we have to hold my folks totally employed!”)

“Wolf Pack” is a supernatural teen drama sequence that can start streaming on Paramount+ on January 26. The sequence stars SARAH MICHELLE GELLER45. She remains to be finest generally known as the star of the hit TV sequence “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” which ran from 1997-2003.

There may be little advance info on the present’s plot aside from that it’s a supernatural drama for youngsters. Geller “passably” performed a teenage lady in “Buffy.” However she could not move now. My guess is that her “Wolf” character as an grownup “supervises” a passel of actors who can move for a teenage lady.

“Shrinking” is a comedy sequence that begins streaming on Apple+ on January 27. It was co-created by BRETT GOLDSTEIN42, JASON SEGAL, 42, and Invoice Lawrence. These three males additionally write the scripts.

Goldstein, a British Jew, was employed to put in writing for “Ted Lasso,” which has turn into the largest hit on Apple +. Shortly after he started writing “Lasso,” he was solid to play getting older soccer star Roy Kent. This function made him well-known, and he has received two Emmys in a row for finest supporting actor.

Not solely did Segal co-create “Shrinking,” he co-stars within the sequence. His highest credited co-star is HARRISON FORD, 80. Ford performs Dr. Rhodes, therapist. The sequence trailer means that Segal performs Rhodes’ affected person.

The (naked) advance publicity says that Rhodes is “in nice grief” because the sequence begins and that this grief leads Rhodes to interrupt moral boundaries. His largest break is telling his sufferers what he actually thinks. This honesty results in nice adjustments in Rhodes’ life and within the lives of his sufferers.

Ford may also be seen within the Paramount sequence + “1923.” I believe​​​​ that Ford is delighted that “Shrinking” and “1923” are restricted sequence (10 episodes per season). He is ready to hold his hand in appearing with out being exhausted by the texture of a conventional 22 episode TV sequence. Additionally, it have to be good to go to a comedy sequence after being in a severe Western like “1923.”

Ford is the secular son of a Jewish mom and a non-Jewish father. Try “The Frisco Child” (1979), a Western comedy movie. Ford performed a man who befriends an immigrant rabbi (BIRTH WILD). Wilder mentioned he had no concept Ford’s mom was Jewish once they met on set. A number of days later, he started instructing Ford about Jewish customized. Ford informed him “I do know, I do know” and defined how he knew (out there on TCM, on-demand, this month).

“Evening Courtroom,” a “reboot” of the favored sequence of the identical title that ran from 1984-92, premiered on January 17. MELISSA RAUCH42 (“Large Bang Principle”), co-starring as Decide Abby Stone, daughter of Harry Stone (performed by the late Harry Anderson), the decide within the unique sequence.

The second season of NBC’s hit sequence “American Auto” premiered on January 24. Like “Evening Courtroom” “Auto” is straightforward to catch up on-line or on demand. Each sequence are free to observe on the Peacock App.

“Auto” was created by Justin SPITZER45, and co-star JON BARINHOLTZ43. Jon is the brother of an actor IKE BARINHOLTZ45. As famous in a earlier column, Ike might be a contestant within the finals of the present “Movie star Jeopardy” (tunes February 2, 7 pm ABC).

ROSE NOVIE51, the director of the third episode (tunes January 31, 7 pm) contacted me not too long ago as a result of his mom is a giant fan of this column.

Novie was form sufficient to present me the plot of the Jan.31 episode. It sounds humorous. Right here goes: Payne Motors CEO Katherine Hastings (Ana Gasteyer) tries to battle again in opposition to her media repute as “essentially the most hated CEO within the nation.” To this finish, she goes on “Late Evening with Seth Meyers.” The “Late Evening” scenes, Novie informed me, have been shot on location at 30 Rockefeller Plaza (the place “SNL” is shot).
