Wednesday: King’s ‘Mr. Harrigan’s Phone’

Already a success from his recent series on “Dahmer” (Netflix, streaming), Ryan Murphy is back with another production, “Mr. Harrigan’s Phone” (Netflix, streaming). A film based on a Stephen King short story starring Donald Sutherland and Jaeden Martell. 

“The Real Love Boat” (CBS, 9 p.m.) isn’t so much a remake of the old romance anthology as it is a resuscitation of the ideas behind the old syndicated dating show “Shipmates.” Husband and wife team Jerry O’Connell and Rebecca Romijn are hosts of the show where couples aboard a Princess Cruise ship try to find love. Elements of the corny old show are incorporated (including the theme song, sung by O’Connell). 

“The Sound of 007” (Peacock, streaming) marks the 60th anniversary of the James Bond film franchise by reviewing its wealth of classic musical themes. 

Now for some disgrace on the British royal family, a documentary about “Prince Andrew: Banished” (Peacock, streaming).

“Togo” (Netflix streaming), a new action film about drug cartels, is the first Netflix movie from Uruguay. 

Jacob Batalon, who has played Spider-Man’s best friend in five Marvel movies, now stars in the new series “Reginald the Vampire” (Syfy, 10 p.m.), based on Johnny B. Truant’s “Fat Vampire” novels. 

It joins the second season return of “Chucky” (Syfy, USA, 9 p.m.), the horror movie doll who has found a place on cable. Brad Dourif and Jennifer Tilly lend their voices; the rest of the cast are mostly teens.
