Making History: Sundays at 7 p.m. ET/PT (check local listings) beginning March 5
Upon discovering time travel, Dan (Adam Pally, The Mindy Project), a facilities manager at a small Massachusetts college, begins transporting himself back to the 1700s and eventually falls for a colonial woman – but his actions in the past are messing up the present. That woman isn’t just any woman, she’s Paul Revere’s daughter, Deborah (Leighton Meester, Gossip Girl), and Dan’s meddling causes her father to delay his famous ride, which may have altered the outcome of the entire American Revolution. To set matters right, Dan enlists the help of a brilliant, polished, and popular history professor at the college, Chris (Yassir Lester, Key and Peele), who’s now given the incredible opportunity to actually live the history he teaches. Can Dan, Chris, and Deborah save America as we know it? Can a woman from 1775 adapt to life in 2017? Can the three intrepid time travelers improve the past, help the helpless, fight for justice, and find true love and friendship?

When Joshua Beck (Mack Wilds, The Wire), an African-American Sheriff’s deputy, kills an unarmed white college student, a small town in North Carolina is turned upside down. Before the town has a chance to grapple with this tragedy, the neglected murder of an African-American teen is brought to light, opening wounds that threaten to tear the community apart. Leading the Department of Justice’s inquiry into these shootings is seasoned investigator Ashe Akino (Sanaa Lathan, The Perfect Guy) and a young Special Prosecutor, Preston Terry (Canadian Stephan James, Selma), both of whom are African-American. As they start to peel back the layers of both cases, they suspect a cover up that may involve some of the state’s most powerful people, including fiercely political North Carolina Governor, Patricia Eamons (guest star Academy®-, Emmy®- and Golden Globe®-winning actress Helen Hunt, As Good As It Gets). Meanwhile, real estate mogul and owner of a privatized prison, Arlen Cox (Academy®- and Golden Globe® Award-winning actor Richard Dreyfuss, The Goodbye Girl), is pulled into the volatile debate over policing in the town, and Lt. Calvert Breeland (Stephen Moyer, True Blood), a seasoned veteran in the Sheriff’s Department, gets caught in the middle of the investigation.

The arranged marriage of Philip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth Jennings (Keri Russell) grows more passionate and genuine by the day, but as the pressures and demands of the job grow heavier, the personal toll becomes almost too exhausting to bear. Having revealed their true identities to their teenage daughter Paige (Holly Taylor), Philip and Elizabeth’s ability to protect their cover and their family’s safety has become even more tenuous. And as the Cold War rages on, paranoia on both sides reaches new heights, making their work increasingly vital – and eminently more perilous.
Fargo (s): Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT (check local listings) beginning April 19
Set in 2010, the third installment of Fargo centers on Emmit Stussy (Ewan McGregor, Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and his slightly younger brother, Ray (McGregor). Emmit, the “Parking Lot King” of Minnesota, sees himself as an American success story, whereas Ray is more of a cautionary tale. Forever living in his more successful brother’s shadow, Ray is a balding and pot-bellied parole officer with a huge chip on his shoulder about the hand he’s been dealt – and he blames his brother. Their sibling rivalry follows a twisted path that begins with petty theft but soon leads to murder, mobsters, and cut-throat competitive bridge. Carrie Coon (The Leftovers) stars as Gloria Burgle, the steady chief of the local police department. Gloria is a newly divorced mother trying to understand the new world around her, where people connect more intimately with their phones than with people. Mary Elizabeth Winstead ( 10 Cloverfield Lane) stars as Ray’s girlfriend, Nikki Swango, a crafty and alluring recent parolee with a passion for competitive bridge. David Thewlis (Harry Potter franchise) stars as V.M. Vargas, a mysterious loner and true capitalist whose bosses plan to partner with Emmit, whether the “Parking Lot King” likes it or not.
