Grace and Frankie: For as long as they can recall, Grace and Frankie have been rivals. Their one-upmanship comes crashing to a halt, however, when they learn that their husbands have fallen in love with each other and want to get married. As everything around the ladies is coming apart, the only thing they can really rely on is each other. This Netflix original re-teams Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin (9 to 5) as Grace and Frankie, respectively, bringing their chemistry to the small screen. Watch it on Netflix today.

Episodes: The comedy returns, picking up with action the day after Beverly and Sean return to London. It seems the couple’s Hollywood nightmare is not yet over when the network picks up Pucks! for six more episodes, reuniting the pair with Matt LeBlanc once more. Matt himself faces troubles when he discovers his financial adviser has just killed himself, taking with him a vast portion of the actor’s fortune, and with the network once again without a president, would-be executive Carol is forced to fend off the attentions of a rival for the position. Tune in this Monday on BBC Two at 10pm.

The Affair: The Golden Globe-winning drama comes to the UK. Noah Solloway escapes the city for a break in Long Island with his wife and four children, where a chance encounter leads him to begin an affair with waitress Alison Bailey. Catch it in on Wednesday on Sky Atlantic at 9pm.

Nashville: The return of the American musical drama. Rayna must choose between the two men in her life, while Juliette is struggling to repair her relationship with Avery and goes to an auditions for the leading role in a biopic. Determined to start afresh, Scarlett embarks on a road trip home, and Will and Layla cope with the fall-out from his confession. Tune in this Wednesday on E4 at 10pm.

Wayward Pines: When two federal agents go missing in Wayward Pines, Idaho, Secret Service Agent Ethan Burke (Matt Dillon), one of Seattle’s best agents, sets out to find them. One of the missing agents is Ethan’s former partner, Kate, with whom he had a relationship that almost destroyed his marriage. After Ethan is involved in a car accident upon his arrival in the seemingly perfect town, he wakes up in the hospital without his wallet, ID or money, and cannot find a working phone to contact anyone at home. When Ethan’s wife learns of his disappearance, she and their teenage son begin a search that only leads to more questions. Watch it this Thursday on FOX (UK) at 9pm.
