My Top 10 Choices for March TV

By  | 

It’s so great to have year-round TV programming, isn’t it?! I know it makes for

There are plenty of viewing options on the small screen next month and the following are my top choices for March:

NEWCOMERS

On March 5, the two-hour debut of the new ABC series Time After Time will air at 9 PM.

The show stars Freddie Stroma (UnReal) as a young H.G. Wells as he travels through centuries, decades and days in the time machine he created. While in the pursuit of the charismatic (yet secretly psychopathic) Dr. John Stevenson (Josh Bowman from Revenge), better known as “Jack the Ripper,” Wells travels to modern day New York City in search of Stevenson following the doctor’s brazen escape from authorities in Wells’ London home. But instead of the Utopia he imagined, Wells finds a world more aligned with Stevenson’s temperament that leads him on a daring adventure full of mystery, romance and intrigue.

Also on March 5, the new drama The Arrangement will debut on E! at 10 PM.

Kyle West (Josh Henderson from Dallas) is an A-list movie star; Megan Morrison (Christine Evangelista from Chicago Fire and The Walking Dead) is an aspiring actress who auditions for the role of a lifetime, ending up with the lead role and a Cinderella-esque date with West. Soon enough Megan is offered a 10 million dollar marriage contract and is introduced to Kyle’s secretive self-help organization: The Institute of the Higher Mind, which is run by Terence (Michael Vartan from Alias), Kyle’s best friend and closest confidante.

The new Netflix series Marvel’s Iron Fist will debut online on March 17.

Billionaire Danny Rand (Finn Jones from Game of Thrones) returns to New York City after being missing for years, trying to reconnect with his past and his family legacy. He fights against the criminal element corrupting New York City with his kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist.

BACK FOR MORE

Once Upon a Time will be for back with more episodes of its sixth season on March 5 at 8 PM on ABC.

The second season of Underground will premiere on WGN America on March 8 at 10 PM.

That same night, (March 8), Designated Survivor will be back for the rest of its debut season on ABC at 10 PM.

FUN AT THE MOVIES

On March 18, the new Hallmark Channel movie Campfire Kiss will debut at 9 PM, finding Danica McKellar and Paul Greene appearing alongside each other once again. This time around McKellar stars as a protective mother, feeling disconnected from her teenage son, decides to step outside her comfort zone, taking him camping. But as soon as she arrives, she begins butting heads with her cabin neighbor, a single father and outdoorsman (Greene) who is also in search of a connection with his teen daughter.

The PBS mini-series To Walk Invisible: The Bronte Sisters will debut on March 26 at 9 PM. The two-hour movie follows the Brontë sisters in the eventful three-year period that saw them rise from ordinary, unmarried women, taking care of the household and their widowed father, to the secret authors of the world’s most sensational literature.

THIS IS THE END

The season finale of This Is Us will air on NBC on March 14 at 9 PM.

And, on March 31 the series finale of Grimm will air on NBC at 8 PM. [I will greatly miss this series, as it has been so much fun spending time with all the characters.]
