We now live in a world where a regular actor on a broadcast TV show like “9-1-1: Lone Star” on Fox like Rob Lowe can also moonlight as the lead on a streaming show, this one “Unstable” on Netflix, out Thursday.

Lowe plays an Elon Musk-esque tech billionaire who has lost his bearings after his wife suddenly dies. And his son re-enters his life to try to right the ship before his entire company goes down in flames.

And “Abbott Elementary” star Quinta Brunson is busy this week participating in Jimmy Fallon’s weekly game show “That’s My Jam” and hosting “Saturday Night Live” for the first time.

John Leguizamo and Toni Collette provide star power to a new Amazon series called “The Power” in which a group of teen girls develop the power to electrocute people based on Naomi Alderman’s novel of the same name.

Remember Quibi? Most people have already forgotten that misbegotten short-lived streaming service but Roku picked up one of its shows “Die Hart” and shot a second season in Atlanta. It stars Kevin Hart as himself trying to become an action star. This year’s big name co-star? John Cena. It returns Friday.

For better nostalgia, there is the origin story of the addictive 1980s-era brick-dropping game “Tetris,” a scripted thriller movie starring Taren Egerton, out on Friday. The big issue: it was invented in the Soviet Union during the Cold War.

Apple TV+ on Wednesday also offers up a new Chris O’Dowd comedy “A Big Door Prize” in which a mysterious machine called “Morpho,” claiming to have the ability to tell an individual’s true calling in life, appears at a general store and upends the life of a small town.

Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston reunite for a sequel to the 2019 Netflix action-comedy film “Murder Mystery” for what is aptly titled “Murder Mystery 2″ out Friday.
