Written, arranged, and produced by ASCAP Award-winner Chip Deffaa, the musical sketch “A Stage-Door Kind of Love,” presents–through music and words–the relationship of two teens who’ve grown close together at summer theater-camp. Deffaa notes: “It’s inspired by Stagedoor Manor, which is, along with French Woods, one of the two best theater camps in the world.
Olivia Hadad has actually attended the camp–as have assorted pros who’ve been in plays I’ve written and directed, or on recordings I’ve produced. A lot of talented people I know–from singer/actor Beau Cassidy to one of

Time is of the essence in the intricately multilayered puzzle of True Detective’s mesmerizing third season, a return to form for creator Nic Pizzolatto. Curbing his tendency toward the loopy dialogue and mopey metaphysics that made 2015’s pretentious second installment feel like a self-parody, he puts story and character first in this long-awaited comeback season.
And what a character is Wayne Hays, a brooding Arkansas state detective haunted over three decades by a crime that shaped his life and career. Played with a simmering, festering intensity and sorrow by Oscar winner Mahershala Ali (Moonlight), Wayne is besieged by ghosts, literal and symbolic, when a true-crime TV producer puts him on camera in 2015. The goal: to recall the tragedy involving two small-town kids who went missing back in 1980 and what happened a decade later, when the case was fatefully reopened in 1990 following a startling twist.

Eloise is AE Editor and a food, entertainment and features writer for The Times, subjects she has covered for over two decades in and around the Region. She was the youngest of eight in a Chicago household filled with fantastic cooks and artists.
Hell hath no fury like a woman wrongfully imprisoned. In the new drama Proven Innocent, Madeline Scott (Rachelle Lefevre) is a Chicago defense attorney on a mission to exonerate people convicted of crimes they didn’t commit.
Her crusade isn’t driven solely by a desire to see justice served: When she was 18, Madeline and her older brother, Levi (Riley Smith), were found guilty of murdering their friend Rosemary Lynch (Casey Tutton). The siblings spent 10 years behind bars before their verdict was overturned and they were freed. Now, Madeline is determined to spare other innocent victims. Sounds like we’re teed up for a triumphant tale of redemption, no?
Plus, ‘The Masked Singer,’ ‘The Passage’ and more.

Finding Your Roots With Henry Louis Gates, Jr. (8/7c, PBS, check local listings at pbs.org): Having traced the history of the Targaryens in his exhaustive Fire Blood tome, George R.R.

A selective critical checklist of notable Monday TV:
America’s Got Talent: The Champions (8/7c, NBC): Viewers clearly have an appetite for high-concept reality TV this winter, with strong opening numbers last week for Fox’s ridiculous The Masked Singer and NBC’s Dwayne Johnson-fueled The Titan Games. So hopes are high as NBC spins off its hit summer talent show with an international edition, featuring fan favorites from past seasons and breakouts from international versions of Talent. With Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Terry Crews as host, 10 acts compete in the opening episode for judges Simon Cowell, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel. Two will advance to the finals: one with a Golden Buzzer, and another sent on by a panel of AGT super-fans.
