This week's TV sees the return of feel-good comedy Ted Lasso, a wild new blind-dating show putting personality to the test in Sexy Beasts and the return of psychotherapy drama In Treatment.
Sky Atlantic, 9pm
After a 10-year hiatus, In Treatment returns to the psychologist’s chair with Uzo Aduba (Orange is the New Black) replacing Gabriel Byrne (ZeroZeroZero) as the lead therapist. Aduba stars as therapist Dr Brooke Taylor, who must treat a variety of patients while trying to overcome her own grief regarding her father’s death.
With each episode constituting a therapy session, Dr Taylor’s patients will be played by guest stars including Anthony Ramos (In The Heights), John Benjamin Hickey (The Good Wife) and Quintessa Swindell (Euphoria).
BBC One, 9pm
Following on from Small Axe, the anthology series exploring the real-life experiences of London's West Indian community between 1969 and 1982, Steve McQueen returns alongside James Rogan with a three-part documentary series exploring three key events in 1981 and how they affected Britain’s race relations.
The opening episode investigates the birthday party in south London that ended in a fire, killing 13 young black British people. The documentary tells the story of the young people who were at the party and the aftermath, which catalysed an uprising among the young black British community.
A panda must choose a potential suitor from a goat, an alien and a tin man. Of all the dating show permutations, Sexy Beasts is surely the most bizarre one yet. Putting true blind-date chemistry to the test, the series will see singletons don a face-full of prosthetics to see whether you can fall in love with someone based on personality alone.
Comedian Rob Delaney (Catastrophe) offers his whip smart narration, with each episode following a new singleton as they decide who they vibe with most out of three heavily masked dates.
BBC Two, 9pm
To mark the 10th anniversary of legendary singer Amy Winehouse’s death, Reclaiming Amy will see Amy’s closest family and friends, including her mother Janis and father Mitch, reveal the truth about the life, loves and legacy of one of Britain’s best-loved musical talents.
With access to previously unseen family archive footage and rare performances, Amy’s mother Janis hopes to reclaim the narrative around her daughter’s life and celebrate her musical genius.
With a record-breaking 20 Emmy nominations making Ted Lasso the most nominated freshman comedy in the award’s history, the series is set for a triumphant return this week with Jason Sudeikis playing the lovably incompetent titular coach.
From American football coach to clueless manager of an English Premier League side, last series saw Ted unable to save the ill-fated AFC Richmond from relegation.
Now, with the help of Coach Beard (Brendan Hunt) and former kitman turned tactician Nathan Shelly (Nick Mohammed), Lasso must reignite the passion among The Greyhounds if they hope to have any chance of gaining promotion back into the big league, including veteran grump Roy Kent (Brett Goldstein), Mexican super striker Dani Rojas (Cristo Fernandez) and joyful defender Sam Obisanya (Toheeb Jimoh).
