5:45 p.m. on HBO Movie: Fan­tas­tic Beasts and Where to Find Them

J.K. Rowl­ing made her screen­writ­ing de­but with this whim­si­cal 2016 spinoff of the block­buster movie adap­ta­tions of her “Harry Pot­ter” nov­els, with Ed­die Red­mayne star­ring as Newt Sca­man­der, a “ma­g­i­zo­ol­o­gist” track­ing down mag­i­cal crea­tures set free in the wiz­ard­ing world of 1926 New York. Kather­ine Water­ston, Dan Fogler, Sa­man­tha Mor­ton and Ali­son Su­dol co-star in the movie, which be­came the first Harry Pot­ter-re­lated film to win an Os­car (for cos­tume de­sign).

10:02 p.m. on ANPL Wolves and War­riors

The prac­tice of pair­ing emo­tion­ally in­tu­itive pets with hu­mans re­cov­er­ing from a trauma is be­com­ing in­creas­ingly com­mon, but this touch­ing new un­scripted se­ries takes that to a whole new level, by pair­ing shell-shocked com­bat vet­er­ans with res­cued wolves. The show spot­lights the work be­ing done by U.S. Navy veteran Matt Sim­mons and his wife, clin­i­cal psy­chol­o­gist Lorin Lind­ner, at the Lock­wood An­i­mal Res­cue Cen­ter, which ex­tracts the wolves from dan­ger­ous or abu­sive sit­u­a­tions. Hu­mans and an­i­mals work to­gether in a pri­vate, non-pub­lic space.
