Pretty Little Liars – Their search for the meanings behind the new clues they’ve received leads Aria, Spencer, Emily and Hanna (Lucy Hale, Troian Bellisario, Shay Mitchell, Ashley Benson) to a dilapidated doll hospital with some familiar-looking “patients.” They also find a little boy who seems to know more than he’s telling. Tammin Sursok also stars in the new episode “If These Dolls Could Talk.”
Wild Serengeti – With more than 70 species of large mammals and 500 varieties of birds, Africa’s Serengeti is a complex ecosystem that’s also home to one of nature’s greatest dramas. Every year, more than 2 million animals set out on an epic 2,000-mile journey in search of food and water, facing predators and extreme weather along the way. This special documents the deadly journey that illustrates the cycle of life on the Serengeti.
Monster Man – This new reality series goes behind the scenes of one of Hollywood’s most respected effects workshops, SOTA F/X. For nearly 30 years, SOTA’s Cleve Hall and his team have been making bizarre creatures and aliens for studio films. In the premiere, “Friday the 13th” director Sean Cunningham Hall asks the team to create conjoined twins that tear apart for his next feature film. Then, creature-feature makers at The Asylum request a two-headed shark.
Missing – Ashley Judd stars in this action-packed new drama series as Becca Winstone, whose son (Nick Eversman) vanishes 10 years after he saw his CIA agent father (Sean Bean) apparently killed. Becca was also an intelligence operative, and she must rely on those skills as her search for her son takes her on a treacherous trek across Europe.
Fairly Legal – In the second season, feisty mediator Kate (Sarah Shahi) has a new conflict — and potential hot romance — on her hands in the form of the sharp, hustling, up-and-coming trial attorney Ben Grogan (Ryan Johnson). Hired by Lauren (Virginia Williams) to save the firm, which is on the verge of collapse, Ben’s presence adds fuel to Kate’s already at-odds relationship with her soon-to-be ex-husband, Justin (Michael Trucco).
