This Week in TV: 'Boomerang,' 'Umbrella Academy,' 'Proven Innocent'
A busy week for cable premieres and a high-profile launch on four separate streaming services are among the TV debuts for Feb. 11-17. Viewers can see the premiere of a series sequel to a well-loved '90s movie, the beginnings of not one, but two superhero teams and a whole lot of dunks, among other things.
Below is The Hollywood Reporter's rundown of some of the coming week's highlights. It would be next to impossible to watch everything, but let THR point the way to some worthy options. All times are ET/PT unless noted.
New: Legal drama Proven Innocent (9 p.m. Friday, Fox) centers on a Chicago lawyer (Rachelle LeFevre) who was once wrongfully convicted in an infamous murder case. Now she takes cases of those in similar situations. Kelsey Grammer, Russell Hornsby, Vincent Kartheiser and Nikki M. James also star.
Returning: The third season of CBS' globe-trotting hostage-negotiation drama Ransom premieres at 8 p.m. Saturday.
New: A sequel to the 1992 Eddie Murphy-Halle Berry film, Boomerang (10 p.m. Tuesday, BET) centers on Marcus and Angela's daughter (Tetona Jackson) and Jacqueline's son (Tequan Richmond). Berry is an exec producer, as is Lena Waithe, who co-wrote the premiere with showrunner Ben Cory Jones.
Also new: Daniel Radcliffe is an office drone in heaven working for Steve Buscemi's God in Miracle Workers (10:30 p.m. Tuesday, TBS); a live-action Kim Possible movie (8 p.m. Friday, Disney) finds the hero thwarting evil and navigating high school.
Returning: New seasons of American Dad (10 p.m. Monday, TBS), The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (9 p.m. Tuesday, Bravo) and Last Week Tonight (11 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 17, HBO).

Also new: DC Universe's latest original, Doom Patrol (Friday), follows the events of Titans as the team embarks on a new mission. A pair of very different projects produced by Jordan Peele also hit: Sci-fi comedy anthology Weird City (Wednesday, YouTube) and docuseries Lorena (Friday, Amazon), about the infamous Lorena Bobbitt case.
