First, an apology. If you continue to read this item, tunes from the Broadway musical may enter your brain and never leave. This is an hourlong look behind the scenes at the process of designing, casting, rehearsing and mounting the ever-popular Broadway musical (currently running on the Great White Way with “Glee’s” Jane Lynch as Miss Hannigan). “The sun will come out, tomorrow …” See, I warned you. 10 p.m. Friday on KCTS.

My new movie trailer obsession has arrived.
Yes, I know it doesn’t open until Nov. and summer isn’t even here yet, but come on! The film version of the Tracy Letts play has Meryl, Julia, Margot, Ewan, Sam, Chris, Abigail, Dermot and Benedict acting up a storm.
I love a good summer blockbuster as much as the next guy, but I say bring on the supreme dysfunction of the Weston family!
Yes, it is still raining in the third season premiere of the Seattle-set thriller (that is so obviously filmed in Vancouver, B.C.). It’s a year after the close of the Rosie Larsen case, Holder (Joel Kinnaman) is still working as a police detective and Linden (Mireille Enos) lives and works on Vashon Island. And yes, a new case catches the interest of both our brooding leads. Two-hour season premiere, 8 p.m. Sunday on AMC.
