Coachella: 20 Years in the Desert

Billie Eilish, Madonna, Kanye West, Rage Against The Machine, Swedish House Mafia, Björk, The White Stripes and more appear, as the doc looks back on news-making sets including the Tupac hologram and Beychella.

Fleabag Live

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Amazon Prime Video

If you've been waiting for that obsession with Fleabag to pass (hint: despite assurances from hot priests, it will not), you can stoke the flames of your attraction once more courtesy of Amazon Prime. Before it became an award-winning TV series, Fleabag was a one-woman play. Phoebe Waller-Bridge reprised the show that kickstarted her career last year on both Broadway and the West End. For a limited time only, Amazon Prime is now offering viewers the chance to see a recorded version of the West End show from last fall. For a few dollars, you can get live theater streamed directly into your home. So put on your best jumpsuit and crack open a canned G&T for a rare glimpse at the stage play that made Fleabag the foul-mouthed, sex-crazed, Hot Priest-loving woman we know and love. —Maureen Lee Lenker

American Idol: This Is Me

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 8 p.m. on ABC

Because American Idol judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan couldn’t decide last week between two contestants — one would go home, the other would advance to the Top 20 — they both moved on! Surprise! But, there’s a catch — America has to vote to pick who makes the shortlist: Lauren Mascitti or Grace Leer. That will happen over the course of Sunday and next week’s episodes, called This Is Me. Like nearly all of Hollywood, Idol had to change its production schedule due to coronavirus, so instead of the live performance episodes, these two are taking a deep dive into the lives of the remaining finalists and will include some never-before-seen performances. Sounds like some perfect quarantune programming. —Gerrad Hall

Belgravia

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 9 p.m. on Epix

Series Debut

Downton Abbey fans: Julian Fellowes has an all-new period drama full of the pageantry, intrigue, and talent everyone has come to expect from his productions. Belgravia — starring Tamsin Greig, Alice Eve, Harriet Walter, Tom Wilkinson, and Ella Purnell — begins elegantly enough at a glamorous ball in 1815 where a smitten young couple, Sophia Trenchard (Emily Reid) and Lord Edmund Bellasis (Jeremy Neumark Jones), go public with their romance much to the chagrin of their families who are from different echelons of society. While they are determined to stay together no matter what, they are eventually separated due to the Battle of Waterloo where Lord Bellasis is sent to fight. But, before his departure, the pair manage to change the course of both their futures and that of multiple families forever. —Rosy Cordero

Killing Eve

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 9 p.m. on BBC America/AMC

Season Premiere

Once upon a time, way back in the season 1 finale, Eve stabbed Villanelle. Then at the end of season 2, the tables were turned, the roles were reversed, and it was Villanelle doing the wounding, this time with a gun, leaving Eve lying on the ground, fate unknown. (I mean, she’s a huge part of the show and is in the title, so you know she was going to live.) Now, you’re about to find out what happened to both cat and mouse (don’t ask us which is which) as BBC America’s alluring spy thriller returns for a third season. The question that dogged Sandra Oh (a.k.a. Eve) in the wake of the season 2 finale? “How can you come back when you said ‘no’?” The coming eight episodes will tackle issues of identity and further complicate this spy game. “It’s the most personal season — and the most emotionally rocky season,” declares executive producer Sally Woodward Gentle. And don’t worry, Villanelle is ready to resume her hunts. “Some of the kills this season are — can I say they’re great?” Jodie Comer tells EW. “I mean, there are some unexpected twists and turns within the kills themselves that viewers will enjoy.” Here’s to a bloody good time. —Dan Snierson
