The D’Amelio Show (Hulu, Friday, 12:01 a.m.): Could Hulu’s new reality series be the new Keeping Up With The Kardashians?

After a storm hits and one of them disappears, the others attempt uncover the truth of what happened and uncover a sinister mystery in the process.
Cinderella (Amazon Prime Video, Friday, 12:01 a.m.): “Consider this fair warning: Writer/director Kay Cannon’s new jukebox-infused take on Cinderella won’t be a glass shoe that fits everyone. Those whose stomachs turn at the mere thought of Cinderella (pop star Camila Cabello) and her prince (Nicholas Galitzine) dueting to an Ed Sheeran song should stay far, far away from this PG-rated comedic pop confection aimed squarely at preteens.” Read the rest of Caroline Siede’s review of the film here.
Worth (Netflix, Friday, 3:01 a.m.): “Sara Colangelo’s Worth, in which 9/11 is depicted only briefly as a cacophony of ringing cellphones on a commuter train, feels initially refreshing. The script by Max Borenstein has found an intriguingly subtle angle on the post-9/11 conflict between mass grief and putative democratic values: the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund, or VCF.” Here’s the rest of Ignatiy Vishnevetsky’s review of the film. The cast includes Michael Keaton, Stanley Tucci, and Amy Ryan.
The J Team (Paramount+, Friday, 3:01 a.m.): Teen popstar and social media sensation JoJo Siwa will star in this live-action musical. She plays a young girl named, wait for it, JoJo, whose life is turned upside down when her beloved dance coach Val (Laura Soltis) decides to retire and is replaced by a sparkle-hating instructor named Poppy (Tisha Campbell-Martin). JoJo and her best friends try their hardest to abide by Poppy’s harsh new rules, when JoJo is kicked out of her dance troupe, she must rediscover what dancing means to her.
