Each week, Variety’s TV team combs through the week’s schedule, selecting our picks of what to watch and when/how to watch them. This week, “The Act” premieres on Hulu and “The OA” returns for Season 2 on Netflix.
“The Fix,” ABC, Monday, 10 p.m.
The legal drama, which is toplined by Robin Tunney and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, was co-created by Marcia Clark, the lead prosecutor in the O.J. Simpson trial. Given that the story centers around a former prosecutor in the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office who lost a case against a famous black person, it would seem the show will be heavily based on Clark’s experiences.
