Hulu brings laughs in November, starting with its own new series about the awkwardness of modern dating, The Bisexual, and reaching back to the classic cringe humor of Married With Children. The movie list includes classic comedies The Big Lebowski and Ocean's 11 (2011), and 2010's Kick-Ass.

TV Shows

Kingpin, Season 1 (Oct. 1)

This new History channel show tells the story of the world's greatest modern criminals, including John Gotti, Pablo Escobar and Whitey Bulger.

Into the Dark, Series Premiere (Oct. 5)

If you thought Thanksgiving dinner with the relatives was frightful, wait until you see this new Hulu horror anthology, in which each story takes inspiration from a holiday.

Will & Grace, Season 10 (Oct. 5)

Credit: Chris Haston/NBCCredit: Chris Haston/NBCThis friendship comedy about two gay men and two straight women made a strong return in Season 9, after a whopping 11 years off the air. Fans hope that the momentum will continue for Season 10.

Light As a Feather, Series Premiere (Oct. 12)

You know Halloween is near when supernatural forces start offing teenagers. In this Hulu original, a round of the kids' game "light as a feather, stiff as a board" somehow sets a deadly curse in motion.

The Alec Baldwin Show, Series Premiere (Oct. 15)

Credit: Heidi Gutman/ABCCredit: Heidi Gutman/ABCA show named after the star is often an iffy formula (see below). But Baldwin has already proven himself as an engaging, offbeat interviewer in his WNYC podcast Here's the Thing, which inspired this new ABC talk show.

The Conners, Series Premiere (Oct. 17)

Two decades after it left the air, family dramedy Roseanne returned as a smash success — until the titular star committed social-media suicide. Can ABC revive the story of the Conner family without their matriarch?

The Kids Are Alright, Series Premiere (Oct. 17)

ABC's new comedy is set in a 1972 Los Angeles household with a whopping eight children — all boys — plus a cranky father and a snarky mom (Mary McCormack), both of whom are too overwhelmed to worry too much about their kids.

The Rookie, Series Premiere (Oct. 17)

In what looks to be a feel-good drama, Nathan Fillion (Castle) plays a washed-up 40-year-old inspired by a brush with crime to start a new career as a cop. (For the record, Fillion is 47, but looks the part.)

Movies

Frida, 2002 (Oct. 1)

Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, 1967 (Oct. 1)

While race relations are still terribly fraught in the U.S., they have made some progress since this dry-witted comedy (and social commentary) introduced mainstream audiences to black-white relationships.

The Others, 2001 (Oct. 1)

Something is very wrong in this neglected mansion, where a distraught woman (Nicole Kidman) is cooped up with her two children — who can't go into the sunlight.

RBG, 2018 (Oct. 3)

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has become a hero and icon among U.S. women, especially on the left — even those who are less than a quarter of her age. This flattering biopic documentary centers on her decades spent working for gender equality, both on and off the bench.

The Gospel According to André, 2018 (Oct. 4)

Charismatic, sometimes outlandish fashion writer and editor André Leon Talley has become a cult hero and symbol of success for both the African-American and gay communities. This documentary celebrates his character and his influence on the international fashion scene.

Lowlife, 2018 (Oct. 6)

Rookie director Ryan Prows follows in the footsteps of Quentin Tarantino with this brutal dark comedy from the underbelly of L.A. The movie follows the intertwined, bizarro adventures of a Nazi ex-con, a fallen Mexican wrestling star and an organ-harvesting ring.

The Quest of Alain Ducasse, 2017 (Oct. 11)

Michelin-star-studded French chef Alain Ducasse does not slow down. A documentary crew followed this highly polished counterpart to Anthony Bourdain for two years as he traveled the world to find its greatest foods, all while supporting education and charities.
