Good Witch: Curse From a Rose

8 p.m. ET on HALLMARK – Premiere

In this two-hour Halloween event, Cassie (Catherine Bell) receives a somewhat unwelcome visit from former college roommate Autumn Deveraux (Lolita Davidovich), who still feels the urge to settle an old score between them. Cassie tries to cauterize that old wound before Autumn does something to spoil Middleton’s holiday celebration. Martha (Catherine Disher), meanwhile, plans a seasonal bonfire while trying to overlook that her husband has forgotten the anniversary of their engagement. Sam’s (James Denton) efforts to arrange a romantic Halloween are thwarted by bad luck.



8 p.m. ET on HBO – Premiere

Writer-director M. Night Shyamalan concludes his “Unbreakable” trilogy with this 2019 psychological thriller, which is both a crossover and a sequel to the 2000 original “Unbreakable” and “Split” from 2016. Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard re-team in their roles from the first film, while James McAvoy and Anya Taylor-Joy reprise their “Split” characters. Sarah Paulson, Adam David Thompson and Luke Kirby also join the cast.


Patsy & Loretta

8 p.m. ET on LIFETIME – Premiere

In the Oscar-winning biopic “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” Sissy Spacek and Beverly D’Angelo brought to life the deep and abiding friendship between country stars Loretta Lynn and Patsy Cline, respectively. Now, for this new made-for-cable docudrama, Broadway stars Jessie Mueller and Megan Hilty cover some of that same emotional turf, chronicling how these women bonded tightly over their common roots and positions in a male-oriented business, a friendship that lasted until Cline’s (Hilty) death in a plane crash at age 30. Janine Turner also stars.
