Big Sky—Tuesday, November 17, at 10:01 p.m. ET on ABC
Twists and turns are around every corner in gripping series premiere, written by executive producer and showrunner David E. Kelley. While on a road trip to visit her boyfriend in Montana, Danielle (Natalie Alyn Lind) and her sister Grace (Jade Pettyjohn) are kidnapped by a truck driver on a remote part of the highway. Their disappearance sets off a chain of events that leads private detectives Cody (Ryan Phillippe) and Cassie (Kylie Bunbury) to team up with Cody’s estranged wife, former police officer Jenny Hoyt (Katheryn Winnick), to find Danielle and Grace. When they discover the sisters aren’t the only ones missing in the area, it becomes frighteningly clear they’ve just stumbled onto something much bigger.

LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special—Tuesday, November 17, on Disney+
Joy! Unlimited joy! LEGO is reuniting your favorite Star Wars characters for a special unlike any other. Directly following the events of 2019’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Rey goes solo as she prepares for Life Day (a holiday first introduced in the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special), setting off on a new adventure with BB-8 to gain a deeper understanding of the Force. At a mysterious Jedi Temple, she is hurled into a cross-timeline adventure through beloved moments in Star Wars cinematic history, coming into contact with Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, and more heroes and villains from all nine Skywalker Saga films. Will Rey make it back in time for the Life Day feast and discover the true meaning of holiday spirit?

Throughout the course of his journey, Antoine ends up joining forces with a unit of Kurdish female fighters and travels with them in ISIS-occupied territory.
