TV picks for Aug. 17-18: 'One Tree Hill,' Musiq Soulchild, 'America the Wild'

  • August 16, 2013 - 1:35 PM

The ABCs of life

Musiq Soulchild, Demetria McKinney, Kem and Tamela Mann are among the artists jazzing up the soundtrack to “In the Meantime” (6, 8, 10 p.m. Saturday, UP), a feel-good movie about a career woman who rediscovers herself when she starts teaching an adult literacy course.

School session

Get in the back-to-school mood with a six-hour marathon of “One Tree Hill” (noon Sunday, SOAPnet), a series that managed to stay on the air for nine seasons until viewers realized they weren’t watching “Dawson’s Creek.” Pay special attention to the on-again, off-again chemistry between Sophia Bush and Chad Michael Murray, who were married for less than a year during the show’s run.

The wolf is at the door

In the season premiere of “America the Wild” (9 p.m. Sunday, Nat Geo Wild), explorer/crazy man Casey Anderson travels to Vancouver Island to find out why monster wolves are in such a nasty mood and killing household pets. Um, maybe they don’t like being called “monsters”?
