The sitcom “Atypical” will get well-deserved attention for making its lead character an autistic teenager campaigning for love through brutal honesty and chocolate-dipped strawberries. But producers also deserve a box of chocolates for casting Jennifer Jason Leigh as his restless mother. One of the most underappreciated actresses of her generation, Leigh doesn’t have nearly enough to do early on, which is understandable — the kid comes first. But let’s hope creators make more room for mommy in later episodes.

Fans of “Orphan Black” must be heartbroken that the series finale is upon us, but at least one of the umpteen characters played by Tatiana Maslany must be breathing a sigh of relief. No actress has worked harder in the past five years. The Emmy winner deserves a Long Beach vacation — with a group rate. But she shouldn’t get too relaxed; buzz about a feature film is escalating.

Ray Romano isn’t the most versatile actor — neurotic and frazzled is his wheelhouse — but he may be entertainment’s Most Valuable Surprise, holding his own opposite Oscar winner Holly Hunter in the film “The Big Sick.” Now the former sitcom star shines in the latest adaptation of Elmore Leonard’s “Get Shorty,” playing a B-level movie producer whose fate rests with Chris O’Dowd’s movie-loving gangster. For thoughts from Romano himself, see Sunday’s Variety section.

Party in the USA
Miley Cyrus may seem a tad young to receive lifetime achievement honors — except at “Teen Choice 2017,” where she’ll receive the Ultimate Choice Award. (The multi-hyphenate already had 18 TCA wins). Old fogies Craig Robinson and Gal Gadot also will be on hand, if only to chaperone.
