The highlights include a new film based on a Stephen King story titled Mr. Harrigan’s Phone, the Allison Janney action movie Lou, a new documentary series on Jeffrey Dahmer, a new season of Unsolved Mysteries, the fantasy film The School For Good and Evil starring Charlize Theron and Kerry Washington, and the brand new Addams Family TV series from Tim Burton, Wednesday.
