Thursday TV: ‘Sex Lives of College Girls’

Though the title sounds more Cinemax than HBO Max, Mindy Kaling strikes just the right comic tone in her latest series “The Sex Lives of College Girls” (HBO Max, streaming), which is really about how four first-year college students navigate dating on campus. The strong cast is led by newcomer Pauline Chalamet, sister of movie star Timothee.

The three-episode limited documentary series “The Curse of Von Dutch: A Brand to Die For” (Hulu streaming) looks at the rise and fall of the lowbrow fashion label (which began life by sewing its logo onto Dickies jeans) — a story of generally unsavory characters that begins and ends with murder. But wow, do they take a long time to get to the point. 

The story of Alanis Morrisette’s breakthrough album “Jagged Little Pill” is told in the latest “Music Box” music documentary “Jagged” (HBO, 8 p.m.). 

Another music documentary, “Under the Volcano” (Showtime, 8:25 p.m.) chronicles the 10-year history of the AIR studio built in Monserrrat by George Martin, where The Police, Dire Straits, The Rolling Stones all recorded before it was destroyed by Hurricane Hugo in 1989. 

In the new four-episode British psychological thriller “Hollington Drive” (Sundance Now, streaming), concerns a missing 10-year-old. Anna Maxwell Martin and Rachael Stirling star.

The 22nd Latin Grammy Awards (Univision, 8 p.m.) is live from Las Vegas with Ana Brenda Contreras, Carlos Rivera and Roselyn Sánchez all hosting. Rubén Blades will be honored as person of the year. The Colombian singer Camilo is up for the most awards, 10. 

“Psych 3: This is Gus” (Peacock, streaming) is the third spinoff of the series “Psych,” this time concentrating on sidekick Gus, played by Dulé Hill as Gus on the eve of his wedding. James Roday Rodriguez and Jazmyn Simon also star.
