FX’s Baskets is what surreal comedy dreams are made of (January 21). Cocreated by Louis C.K., Zach Galifianakis, and Jonathan Krisel, the series follows Chip Baskets (Galifianakis), a simple dude from Bakersfield whose goal in life is to be a professional clown.
Hop on Spotify for a taste of American Appetite, the latest album from the L.A.-based quartet Harriet (January 29). Fronted by singer-keyboardist Alex Casnoff (formerly of Dawes and PAPA), the band doctors up indie rock with synth-pop vibes.
Chelsea Handler is back at Netflix for the docu-series Chelsea Does (January 22). It’s something of a departure for the comedian, who travels the world exploring topics such as marriage, racism, and drugs. (Don’t worry, she’s still her offensive self.) Handler even pays a visit to a few L.A. neighborhoods.
Angie Tribeca pokes fun at police procedurals and binge watching (January 17). Rashida Jones stars as a member of the LAPD’s RHCU (Really Heinous Crimes Unit), and the entire first season airs five times during a 25-hour marathon premiere on TBS.
