‘The Caine Mutiny Court Martial’
Transmission begins: October 6

William Friedkin’s latest film is both an adaptation of Herman Wouk’s provocative 1953 play “The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial” (updated to modern times by Friedkin, who wrote the screenplay) and a summary of the fascination of his entire directorial career along the line. between legal authority and raw power, as seen in his classic films “The French Connection” and “To Live and Die in LA.” Jason Clarke plays Lieutenant Barney Greenwald, a Navy lawyer who defends Lieutenant Stephen Maryk, who defied orders and relieved his commander. Lieutenant Commander Officer. Phillip Queeg (Kiefer Sutherland) on duty during a storm.

‘Frasier’ Season 1
Transmission begins: October 12 °

Kelsey Grammer returns to her most famous role, in a sequel series surrounding prickly psychiatrist Frasier Crane with a mostly new cast of characters. Crane returns to Boston from Seattle and becomes involved in the lives of his son, Freddy (Jack Cutmore-Scott), and his nephew, David (Anders Keith). Freddy is a lot like Frasier’s father, Martin, gruff and unassuming, while David has the same dry wit and nervous energy as Frasier’s brother, Niles. Like the old “Frasier,” this new one traffics in farce, with comedy fueled by misunderstandings and personality clashes.

‘John Carpenter’s Suburban Screams’
Transmission begins: October 13

Influential filmmaker and genre composer John Carpenter lends his name, his music, and, in one episode, his directing talents to this hybrid anthology series, combining true crime and horror. Each episode is based on interviews with ordinary people who experienced something extraordinary, encountering real evil in the form of monsters, murderers and unexplained phenomena in their seemingly placid neighborhoods. The interviews provide the basic details of these stories; and then most of each episode of “Suburban Screams” consists of long reenactments that have the feel of an ’80s horror movie, as if Carpenter’s “Halloween” were a documentary.
