Sunday TV: ‘The U.S. and the Holocaust’

Though his projects take years to make, Ken Burns says he’s always confident that they’ll be “echoing in the present” upon their release. So it will be with the three- part “The U.S. and the Holocaust” (PBS, 8 p.m., check local listings) that begins tonight and continues Tuesday and Wednesday (it was originally going to air Monday and Tuesday, but will be bumped by planned coverage of the Queen’s funeral Monday).

The series, which Burns made with Lynn Novice and Sarah Botstein, takes a hard look at the United States’ shaky response to the Holocaust and its victims and will be “resonating in a very fraught and very fragile present moment,” Burns says. Tonight’s first chapter looks at hardline immigration laws implemented as Hitler began his repression.

A new four-part documentary series, “Model America” (MSNBC, 10 p.m.) looks at race relations in the country through the experiences of Teaneck, N.J. unlikely home for today’s Black Lives Matter movement. 

“60 Minutes” (CBS, 7:30 p.m.) begins its 54th (!) season. And it just keeps ticking. 

Originally made for broadcast, “SEAL Team” (Paramount+, streaming) returns for its 10-episode sixth season on a streaming service. 

The new series “Big Sky Kitchen with Eduardo Garcia” (Magnolia, 2 p.m.) presents his the chef’s recipes from his Latin and Jewish heritage.
