TV tips: New ‘Walker’; ‘Salt-N-Pepa’ biopic
Here’s a rebooted series and two films TV fans should know about.
“Walker”: After starring in “Supernatural” for 15 seasons, you’d think Jared Padalecki would want a little break. But he’s right back at it in this drama series, a reboot of “Walker, Texas Ranger,” in which he plays the lawman with his own moral code. Details: 8 p.m. today; The CW.
“Losing Alice”: In the Israeli thriller, Ayelet Zurer plays a 48-year-old film director who feels irrelevant after taking a step back to raise a family, while her husband, David, enjoys the prime of his acting career. She soon becomes obsessed with a young screenwriter and her haunting film in which David is set to star. Ominous intrigue ensues.
Details: Available Friday; Apple TV+.
“Salt-N-Pepa”: The new TV film recalls the incredible journey of Cheryl “Salt” James and Sandra “Pepa” Denton, who met as nursing students at Brooklyn’s Queensborough Community College and went on to have a big pop cultural impact as one of the first all-female rap groups. GG Townson and Laila Odom star. Details: 8 p.m. Saturday; Lifetime.
