Channel 4 brings a wholly uplifting makeover show and RTS Award-winner Adjani Salmon expands his comedy pilot Dreaming Whilst Black.
Dreaming Whilst Black
BBC Three, 10.00pm
Adjani Salmon builds on his RTS Award-winning BBC Three comedy pilot Dreaming Whilst Black for a full series, co-produced by indie powerhouse A24.
Salmon stars as Kwabena, a young aspiring filmmaker stuck in a dead-end recruitment job. When he bumps into an old friend from film school, he lands a life-changing pitching meeting but one that clashes with a career-saving presentation.
Kwabena will have to choose between going all in or giving up his dream, in a charming underdog story that unpacks race and relationships as much as it evokes Black joy.
The Unique Boutique
Channel 4, 10.00pm
A wholly uplifting new makeover show from Channel 4. Rather than telling people what not to wear, a team of disabled fashion designers ask them what they want from their clothing.
The aim is to give those struggling to find styles on the highstreet that suit their unique needs, such as Emma-Jane, who’s looking for a formal dress that won’t snag on her wheelchair wheels, or Huw, who’s self-conscious about his knees but wants an outfit fit for a date.
Watching the designers work at their “dopamine dressing” will give you a hit of the feel-good chemical too.
Drag Me to Dinner
Drag Race meets Come Dine With Me in this riotous reality competition show.
Judges Neil Patrick Harris, Bianca Del Rio and Haneefah Wood pit two teams of drag queens against one another in a dinner party-off. Dressing up ordinary rooms with wild decorations, “over-serving” cocktails and cooking up “something sweet, neat and ready for eat,” no doubt the queens will ensure the chaos will ensue.
Power of Parker
BBC One, 9.30pm
A warm and nostalgic comedy set in the dawn of the 1990s starring Conleth Hill as a self-made, suited and cowboy-booted Martin Parker, who’s struggling to keep his failing electricals chain afloat. This is despite Martin’s dodgy dealings and having “the ambition of Alan Sugar and the swagger of Robert Kilroy Silk.”
Meanwhile his long-suffering wife Kath (Sian Gibson) is planning a special anniversary meal, but his private life is also about to catch up with him.
Good Omens: Series Two
“It's 31 years since Good Omens was published, which means it's 32 years since Terry Pratchett and I lay in our respective beds in a Seattle hotel room at a World Fantasy Convention, and plotted the sequel,” said co-writer Neil Gaiman of the new series of his whimsical and metaphysical comedy.
It sees Michael Sheen and David Tennant’s fussy angel and fast-living demon, Aziraphale and Crowley, forced back into business by an unexpected messenger, a naked Jon Hamm’s angel Gabriel, memory-wiped but bearing bad news.
