Here is what is happening in the world of television on Sunday April 18th. All hours are eastern.

The best choice

Easttown Sea (HBO, 10 p.m., series premiere): “Kate Winslet gives way under the expectations of a small town of Easttown Sea. The Oscar winner plays Detective Mare Sheehan, who is a local hero thanks to a high school basketball victory and dedicated service. Although she has followed in her late father’s footsteps by joining the force, Mare primarily struggles to emerge from her own shadow. But this Brad Ingelsby limited-edition has more in store for Mare than just dashed hopes – it’s also leading the search for a missing person. And as the investigation continues, no past glory can keep its fellow Easttown residents from being restless. There are nuances of Sharp objects, what about the island setting, the missing girl and Mare’s contentious relationship with her mother Helen (Jean Smart). But HBO and Winslet already proved to be a winning combination in 2011, when the actor won an Emmy for Mildred Pierce. » Read the rest of Danette Chavez’s thoughts on this new series and more in our April TV preview..

A sentence we could never have imagined, that.

Confront a serial killer (Starz, 9 p.m., documentary series premiere): Sound the real crime horn once again. Of the latest entry in the genre, Saloni Gajjar writes:

Over the course of its five episodes, the Starz documentary series presents the crisp and gruesome details behind Samuel Little’s murders of 93 (possibly more) women, and the shortcomings in the criminal justice system that kept him free for more. three decades before being properly. apprehended in 2012. Once a huge number like 93 sinks in, viewing becomes more heartbreaking than the stories of some of Little’s victims – who were mostly marginalized women of color as well as sex workers who struggled with the addiction – turn out.

Journalist and author Jillian Lauren serves as the narrator and guide in the gruesome tale. Lauren and Little formed a Thesilenceofthelambs-esque link in 2018, when she reached out to him for an interview for his book while he was in jail. He ended up confessing his crimes to her, and Confront a serial killer includes audio images of his interactions with him.
