Knowing the law
No one spins a better crime yarn than Richard Price. The “Clockers” author once again puts his unparalleled mastery of law enforcement and human nature to proper use in “The Outsider,” a riveting new thriller based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name about a detective who has second thoughts after arresting a Little League coach for the murder of a child. Jason Bateman, who plays the prime suspect, directed the first two episodes.

Leslie Jones’ departure from “Saturday Night Live” is a loss for the late-night series, but it’s giving her a chance to explore other opportunities. In her new stand-up special, “Leslie Jones: Time Machine,” the Emmy-nominated talent builds on her sexually aggressive character that often upended the “Weekend Update” desk, especially when she recalls the time she tried making a move on Prince.

More than OK
If you like the new version of “Party of Five,” you’ll want to check out “Everything’s Going To Be Okay,” a promising new series about a family that’s left to fend for itself after the sudden death of its patriarch. Star and creator Josh Thomas is pretty graphic while relaying his survival story, with barely censored sex scenes and some blunt talk about a girl’s first tampon, but there’s nothing mature viewers won’t be able to handle.

Coming to America
Some of the key players behind “The Big Sick” and “Master of None” have found a way to champion immigrant stories without making viewers feel like they’re attending a naturalization ceremony. Each half-hour episode of the anthology series “Little America” spotlights a different character who overcame the odds in real life to triumph in everything from competitive squash to economics. You’ll end up cheering for each and everyone of them, no matter your ethnic background.
