A list curated by The Associated Press of what’s coming this week to TV, streaming services and music platforms.


Lady Gaga: After turning away from her electro pop sound with 2016’s “Joanne” and 2018’s “A Star is Born,” Lady Gaga is ready to just dance to her new album, due out on Friday. “Chromatica” includes the animated singles “Stupid Love” and “Rain on Me” with Ariana Grande. Elton John and the female K-pop band Blackpink are also featured on the album, which was originally due for release in April but was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

#OUTLOUD Raising Voices: Originally planned to debut at the South by Southwest festival, #OUTLOUD Raising Voices will hit Facebook this week to kick off Gay Pride Month, which technically starts on Monday. The 10-episode concert series will last five weeks and will include performances by Kesha, Greyson Chance, Betty Who, Wrabel, the Aces, Allie X, Candis Cayne, Vincint, and more. It will air on Facebook on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 p.m. Eastern Time (0000 GMT).

Ghibli Marathon: HBO Max will have plenty of movies available when it debuts on Wednesday, but probably the most exciting thing is its Ghibli Studio library. It is the first time that Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata’s animated classics will be available on a streaming platform in the United States, and there are enough great movies to keep the family busy for weeks. For younger Miyazaki fans, “My Neighbor Totoro”, “Spirited Away”, “Porco Rosso” and “Ponyo” (“Ponyo and the secret of the little Mermaid”).

“The Vast of Night”: On Friday night a feature film premieres on Prime Video that has earned its director Andrew Patterson comparisons to a young Christopher Nolan. The Vast of Night takes place one night in the 1950s in New Mexico, and follows two teenagers who notice an unusual frequency on the radio and seek to investigate it. Rolling Stone critic David Fear said: “He knows exactly how to use the retro charm of ‘Twilight Zone’ (‘The Unknown Dimension’) without feeling like a third-generation nostalgic copy of a spoiled movie kid.”

“Uncut Gems”: If you couldn’t watch Adam Sandler’s highly praised performance as a jeweler in distress on “Uncut Gems,” this high-octane thriller by the Safdie brothers hits Netflix on Monday.

“Prideland”: Actor Dyllon Burnside (“Pose”) presents a six-part series that explores LGBTQ life in the southern United States and changing attitudes in the region. In the first episode he shares his experience as a “queer boy” who leaves his native Pensacola, Florida, to be what he calls his authentic self. Returning to the region, he is encouraged by what he finds, but he also sees the challenges to overcome. The series premieres Tuesday on PBS Voices, a new channel focused on YouTube documentaries. Burnside also hosts a special accompanying the series on June 12 on PBS and PBS.org.

Steve Carell, the terrible boss of “The Office”, is back with a new comedy that opens on Friday. In the 10-episode Netflix series “Space Force,” she plays Mark R. Naird, a decorated general whose dream job is to be in charge of the Air Force. Instead, he is chosen to head a new military division tasked with taking Americans back to the moon and in the process dominating space. Carell leads a cast that also includes John Malkovich, Lisa Kudrow, and Jimmy O. Yang. The series is accompanied by “Inside Joke: Space Force,” a behind-the-scenes podcast presented by Yang with episodes that will premiere on Mondays and Thursdays.
