The most indelible image from the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing was the photo of Jeff Bauman in a wheelchair. Having lost both legs, he sat clutching his left thigh as a trio of people whisked him toward an ambulance. His story — how he ended up at the race and how he fared afterward — comes to the screen in the raw and moving “Stronger,” based on Bauman’s memoir.
LOS ANGELES — What started as a small way to voice opinions about the recent presidential election turned into the catalyst for bringing back one of NBC’s most successful comedy series, “Will & Grace.” Series stars Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes reunited a year ago after a decade to create a short video where their “Will & Grace” characters took sides on the subject of Donald Trump being the Republican candidate for the White House.

It has the nostalgic feel of “The Goldbergs” as it takes place in the early ’70s in Chicago. “The Tiger Hunter” also embraces the same kind of diversity in casting that got shows such as “Fresh Off the Boat” on the air.
