Networks, cable channels and streaming sites like Netflix are rolling out a slate of TV shows for our summer viewing pleasure. Here's a list of the shows that we think could be worth a watch.
I Am Caitlyn
Who knows if Caitlyn Jenner will continue to intrigue us until late July. If she does, E! might just break the Nielsen meter with this eight episode docu-series. The cameras will follow Jenner as she embraces life as a transgender woman. Will the Kardashians be dropping in? You bet.
Premieres July 26 at 8 p.m. on E!
A mulleted, singing Denis Leary is enough to make me want to tune in to this 10-episode comedy. Leary is a washed up rocker who tries to pull it together one more time. He has backup from a super talented daughter played by Elizabeth Gillies (Ariana Grande's bestie on Victorious) and bad vibes from ex-songwriting partner John Corbett (Sex and the City).
Premieres July 16 at 9 p.m. on FX
The Brink / Ballers
New half-hour comedy series The Brink has star power and one of those dark storylines that plays so well on HBO. The world's on the eve of destruction and it's up to an unlikely trio -- Jack Black (Bernie), Tim Robbins (Shawshank Redemption) and Pablo Schreiber (Law & Order: SVU) -- to save the day. And like the promo says "Welcome to a world of trouble." You will recognize a slew of familiar faces popping in and out during the 10-episode run including The Daily Show funny guy Aasif Mandvi. The Brink should pair nicely with HBO's other Sunday night comedy, Ballers (9 p.m.), starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as a retired pro athlete.
Both premiere June 21 on HBO, starting at 9 p.m.
It's on again in MTV's TV update of the 1996 slasher film. This time it's a YouTube video gone viral that puts the teens in danger from a masked killer. Watch for Fort Worth raised Carlson Young as Brooke Maddox. Hope she passes her "Scream" test.
Premieres June 30 on MTV.
This new sci-fi thriller from Netflix follows eight people across the globe who suddenly find themselves mysteriously psychically linked. The show comes from Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski and Lana and Andy Wachowskis of The Matrix.
Premiered June 5 on Netflix.
The Astronaut Wives Club
Now that Mad Men is over, ABC seems to be seeking to fill the 1960s-drama void with this one-hour drama. Based on Lily Koppel's best-selling novel about the women whose lives were dramatically transformed by their husbands' ascent to American royalty status during the space race. This is network TV, so don't expect it to wade into the dark waters where Mad Men tended to tread.
Premieres June 18 on ABC.
