Saturday: ‘Licorice Pizza,’ ‘Belfast’ to Cable

Two big films that look back at old eras make their cable premiere at long last — Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Licorice Pizza” (Epix, 9 p.m.), set in the ‘70s, and Kenneth Branagh’s late 60s tale of Northern Ireland troubles, “Belfast” (HBO, 8 p.m.). And one that didn’t have Oscar buzz: “Jackass Forever” (Showtime, 9 p.m.). 

From Sweden comes the spy series “Red Election” (Oxygen, 7 p.m.), about a British agent who teams with an agent from Denmark to try to stop a Russian terrorist attack in Britain. Lydia Leonard and Victoria Carmen Sonne star. 

“Family or Fiancé” (OWN, 9 p.m.) begins a third season, starting with a prospective bride with an estranged brother. 

The Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrine Ceremony (ESPN, NFL, noon) inducts Tony Boselli, Cliff Branch, Sam Mills, LeRoy Butler, Richard Seymour and Bryant Young, among others, live in Canton, Ohio. 

A new nature series concentrating on one continent, “Africa’s Wild Year” (BBC America, 8 p.m.), looks at animal families in the spring. 

 The reality competition “Killer Camp” (CW, 8 p.m.) begins its season in earnest. 

In the made-for-TV romance “Love in the Limelight” (Hallmark, 8 p.m.) married-in-real life couple Alexa PenaVega and Carlos PenaVega portray pen pals who were once a boy band member and a fan.
