Physical: 100 will premiere on Netflix January 24. One hundred contestants in top physical shape compete in a series of grueling challenges to claim the honor – and cash reward – as the last one standing.

Docuseries Dear Mama will premiere on FX this spring. The deeply personal five-part series defies the conventions of traditional documentary storytelling to share an illuminating saga of mother and son, Afeni and Tupac Shakur. Their story chronicles the possibilities and contradictions of the U.S. from a time of revolutionary fervor to Hip Hop culture’s most ostentatious decade.

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey returns for season thirteen February 7 on Bravo. New relationships, broken hearts, and heated feuds put the Jersey women and their families to the ultimate test. Can one ‘Wife’s fairytale wedding prove once and for all that “family is everything”? Or will the drama reach new heights and threaten their friendships? 

Doctor Who doesn’t return until later in 2023, but the BBC released a first teaser featuring the return of previous Doctor David Tennant. The Tenth Doctor will also be playing the new Fourteenth Doctor. Ncuti Gatwa will eventually take over as the Fifteenth Doctor following the special episodes. This will also be the first season to stream on Disney+ after airing on BBC America since the revival run began.

NBC has ordered The Irrational to series. Alec Baker, a world-renowned professor of behavioral science, lends his expertise to an array of high-stakes cases involving governments, law enforcement and corporations with his unique and unexpected approach to understanding human behavior. The series is inspired by the best-selling book “Predictably Irrational” by Dan Ariely. The series stars Jesse L. Martin, Maahra Hill, Travina Springer, Molly Kunz and Arash DeMaxi.

Nike Training Club has premiered on Netflix just ahead of the new year. Each Nike Training Club program has multiple episodes — a grand total of 30 hours of exercise sessions released in two batches. The programs are available in multiple languages on all Netflix plans, with workouts for all fitness levels and interests. 

Simon Cowell’s X Factor is in discussions to return for a new season on NBC. The series last aired on Fox ten years ago, canceled after three seasons. No official deal has been announced, but the revival would put the singing competition on the same network as fellow series The Voice.

Hallmark Movies & Mysteries has acquired the hit series Drop Dead Diva. The legal dramedy explores the story of a vapid aspiring model who is killed in a car crash and gets brought back to life as an intelligent, high-powered lawyer, hoping to find the meaning of inner beauty. Starring Brooke Elliot, Margaret Cho, and Kate Levering, the show will air on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries on weekdays from 5p-7p beginning January 2.
