TV tips: New ‘Walker’; ‘Salt-N-Pepa’ biopic

- — Chuck Barney, Staff

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.
