February is the shortest, darkest month of the year—not to mention we’ve all been staying home for almost a year now—so TV really needs to step up its game this month.
Fortunately, the small screen seems to have it covered with everything from big events—Super Bowl LV and the Golden Globes—to big reality shows—season four of American Idol on ABC—to new dramas, comedies and limited series. Production stalled in Los Angeles but it’s hard to tell things have slowed from the constant flow of content that Hollywood keeps churning out.
Here’s what Brief will be watching in February:
February 3: Netflx’s Firefly Lane, based on Kristin Hannah’s best-selling book and starring Katherine Heigl and Sarah Chalke
