Netflix announced that its original series “What/If” will premiere on the streaming site on May 24. The Neo-noir thriller — which stars Renee Zellweger (“Cold Mountain, Jerry Maguire”), Jane Levy (“Castle Rock, Suburgatory”), Blake Jenner (“American Animals, Glee”) and Samantha Ware (“Glee”) — follows a mysterious female protagonist as she offers two wealthy newlyweds in San Francisco a lucrative but suspicious offer. The 10-episode first season is executive produced by Page Fright’s Mike Kelley and Melissa Loy alongside production by Atlas Entertainment’s Alex Gartner and Charles Roven, and Compari Entertainment’s Robert Zemeckis and Jack Rapke.

Season 4 of “The Detour” will return to TBS on June 18. Created, written, and executive produced by Jason Jones and Samantha Bee, the absurdist comedy follows the Parker family as they deal with each other’s antics on a string of family vacations they take across the U.S. Starring Jones alongside Natalie Zea, Ashley Gerasimovich, Liam Carroll, Season 4 sees the Parkers on a global search — from New York City to Paraguay — to find their rebellious runaway daughter Delilah.
