Netflix; Friday, June 5

The Wachowski Brothers bring their “Matrix”-y weirdness to TV in the tale of eight people around the world who can tap into each other’s existences. Coincidentally, they’re all ridiculously good-looking.


“Dark Matter”

CNA - Stop HIV Iowa

Syfy; Friday, June 12

The crew of an adrift spaceship wakes up with no memories, and to outside threats galore. Based on the Dark Horse graphic novel (woo!) and produced by the “Stargate SG-1” team (uh-oh).



TNT; Tuesday, June 16

A brilliant-but-troubled surgeon (Jennifer Beals) is hired by a dying tech billionaire (Matthew Modine) to find proof — get it? — that death is not the end. TNT, maybe, but not death.


“The Astronaut Wives Club”

ABC; Thursday, June 18

Imagine “Mad Men,” but focused on the spouses of NASA heroes of the late ’60s. That would be a better show than this reheated network leftover, but the fashion is sooo cute!



USA; Thursday, June 18

A suburban doctor (Jason O’Mara) becomes embroiled in a gang war after saving the life of a kingpin’s son at a drive-by. From the creators of “Burn Notice,” so expect plenty of yelling and gunplay.



Syfy; Friday, June 19

A trio of sexy bounty hunters (Aaron Ashmore, Hannah John-Kamen and Luke Macfarlane) work the interplanetary warzone. It’s “Firefly” meets “Guardians of the Galaxy” meets a Canadian budget.



HBO; Sunday, June 21

A sports dramedy(!) about retired, and rookie, football players just trying to get by in Miami, starring Dwayne Johnson, Omar Miller and Rob Corddry, and produced by Mark Wahlberg and Peter Berg. Hut!


“Mr. Robot”

USA; Wednesday, June 24

Vigilante hacker by night/corporate IT drone by day Elliot (Rami Malek) is recruited by the mysterious “Mr. Robot” (Christian Slater) to e-destroy the company he works for. Never give up on TV, Slater.


“Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll”TrueTV Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll

FX; Thursday, July 16

A failed ‘90s rock band (featuring Denis Leary and John Corbett) gets a second shot at fame with a hot young singer (Elizabeth Gillies). This will be the second-wiggiest FX series after “The Americans.”


“Wet Hot American Summer”

Netflix; Friday, July 17

An eight-episode prequel to the beloved 2001 cinematic classic, all about the first day of summer at Camp Firewood — with all of the cast members anyone cares about! Bring on the short-shorts! CV
