The Real Murders of Atlanta (8 p.m., Oxygen) - This new series portrays the homicide cases that highlight the boundaries between gentrified Southern dynasties, hip hop hustlers and the nouveau riche of this metropolitan mecca of music, entertainment and tech. Told by the investigators, witnesses, reporters and loved ones who have direct connections to the cases.

Reframed: Marilyn Monroe (9 p.m., CNN) - This year marks the 60th anniversary of the death of film icon Marilyn Monroe, and this new CNN documentary series revisits her movies, marriages and career to uncover the themes of feminism, sexuality and power that continue to drive our cultural conversation. The four-part series, inspired by the book “The Many Lives of Marilyn Monroe” by Sarah Churchwell, is narrated by actress Jessica Chastain and features a cast of female voices (and an all-women editorial team) including Joan Collins, Ellen Burstyn, Mira Sorvino, Amber Tamblyn, Molly Haskell, Alicia Malone, Angelica Jade Bastien, Christina Newland and others. The series combines rare archival footage with first person accounts from women close to Monroe. The first two parts air tonight and the final two air next Sunday.

Yellowjackets (10 p.m., Showtime) - In the Season 1 finale: On the night of their 25th reunion, the girls navigate damning evidence, false alibis and a dubious attempt to “heal.” In the wilderness, the Doomcoming leaves everything off the rails as simmering resentments come to a head.
