“Bright Lights” captures Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds as Hollywood personas and a mother-daughter team not long before their recent deaths. Graham Norton chats up A-listers. And “Amélie” comes to Hulu.
BRIGHT LIGHTS: STARRING CARRIE FISHER AND DEBBIE REYNOLDS (2017) 8 p.m. on HBO. As the whole world knows by now,Ms. Fisher, forever after Princess Leia in “Star Wars,” and her mother, Ms. Reynolds, the 1950s movie star turned cabaret singer, died within a day of each other at the end of December. This documentary, directed by Fisher Stevens and Alexis Bloom and originally scheduled to debut in March, follows these women as they go about their routines in what they call “the compound,” living in separate houses but never very far apart. Their screen personas are on full display — but so are the more telling moments when, say, a shadow dims Ms. Reynolds’s normally sunny disposition, or footage reveals Ms. Fisher, who was bipolar, in manic phases. “It’s all so Hollywood, so poetic, so dramatic,” Margaret Lyons wrote in The New York Times. But mostly it demonstrates that they were just like the rest of us. “There’s no people like show people,” she added, “but Hollywood families are, somehow, still just families.”
48 HOURS 10 p.m. on CBS. In 1992, Phonthip Ott’s body was discovered in the Sacramento River in California. Her daughters, Tippy Dhaliwal and Jeanette Marine, immediately suspected their stepfather, Dennis Ott, a petty officer in the Coast Guard, of killing her. But it would be two years, only after Tippy, 16, had written to a district attorney and the Coast Guard, before the arrest of Mr. Ott, who was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole — a possibility the sisters are fighting.
THE GRAHAM NORTON SHOW 10 p.m. on BBC America. Feeling saucy? Tune in to the banter between Mr. Norton and guests including Will Smith and Helen Mirren and, at 11, Felicity Jones and Bruno Mars.Read More...
