We the people

Joel McHale hosts “The People’s Choice Awards,” a ceremony that guarantees star power by leaking the list of winners in advance. “Grey’s Anatomy” leads all TV series in nominations, evidence of both the soap’s lasting appeal and the producers’ disinterest in living on the cutting edge. Case in point: Kevin Hart alone has five nominations.

Undercover of the night

Oscar-nominated writer William Broyles Jr. (“Apollo 13”) and special-ops veteran David Broyles are the father-son team behind “Six,” a long-delayed drama about the effort of a Navy SEAL team to wipe out a Taliban leader in 2014. Based on an idea from über producer Harvey Weinstein, it stars Walton Goggins (“Justified”).

Kelly’s heroes

Megyn Kelly, who’s making the jump from Fox News to NBC, is also using her star power behind the scenes. She’s one of the producers on “Embeds,” a comedy about the misadventures of young reporters covering a presidential campaign. The platform, go90, is fairly obscure — check it out at go90.com — and the cast has no big names, but Kelly’s weight and the subject matter could generate some buzz.
