This week’s slate of new TV shows and movies includes the 2021 SAGs, the highly-anticipated premiere of Chad, and a horror anthology series from Amazon. Read the highlights, below. 

Sunday, April 4 

27th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards: This year’s show is pre-taped and only an hour long. “We’re looking at trying to do a unique award ceremony in an hour and leave people saying, which they very rarely do [with an awards show], ‘Man, I wish we had more,’” SAG executive producer Todd Milliner tells Variety. “It is a jam-packed hour, and we’re still trying to rob from one part to give to another part.” 9 p.m. ET on TBS/TNT

Monday, April 5 

Family Reunion: Read the official description for this show, below. Streaming on Netflix 

“When the McKellan family moves from Seattle to small-town Georgia, life down South—and traditional grandparents—challenge their big-city ways.”

Tuesday, April 6

Chad: “Playing Chad was a battle I had to win,” Nasim Pedrad wrote for Glamour in 2019 about this show. “Having an actual teenager play him would have completely changed the tone and comedic sensibility, the whole DNA of the show. I thought we could push the comedy so much further if Chad was played by an adult who’s in on the joke.” 10:30 p.m. ET on TBS 

Wednesday, April 7 

Dolly Parton: A MusiCares Tribute: Per Netflix, “In a star-studded evening of music and memories, a community of iconic performers honor Dolly Parton as the MusiCares Person of the Year.” Streaming on Netflix
