CLEVELAND, Ohio – FX’s “Pose” and three other new series are among the top viewing choices for this week:

“Pose” (9 p.m. Sunday, June 3, FX): Set in the 1980s, this ambitious new drama from executive producer Ryan Murphy (“Glee,” “Nip/Tuck,” “American Horror Story”) is a dance musical that explores several segments of life and society in New York, including the ball culture world, the rise of the luxury Trump-era universe and the downtown literary scene. Evan Peters and Kate Mara play New Jersey couple Stan and Patty Bowes, who get sucked into a Manhattan scene of glamour and intrigue, as epitomized by Stan’s boss, Matt Bromley (James Van Der Beek). FX says that “Pose” has “the largest recurring cast of LGBTQ actors ever for a scripted series.” The transgender cast includes Mj Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, Indya Moore, Hailie Sahar and Angelica Ross.


“Dietland” (9 p.m. Monday, June 4, AMC): Marti Noxon (“UnREAL,” “Girlfriends’ Gyuide to Divorce,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) is the writer-producer behind this series version of Sarai Walker’s 2015 satirical novel about Plum Kettle (Joy Nash), a ghostwriter of an advice column at a New York fashion magazine. Her ideas attract the attention of a radical feminist organization that uses deadly force on men accused of sexual assault. The dark comedy also stars Julianna Margulies (“ER,” “The Good Wife”) and Erin Drake (“Good Girls Revolt”).

“Condor” (10 p.m. Wednesday, June 6, AT&T/DirecTV): This new conspiracy thriller set in Washington, D.C., is based on James Grady’s 1974 novel “Six Days of the Condor” and the 1975 film adaptation starring Robert Redford, “Three Days of the Condor.” Young and idealistic CIA analyst Joe Turner (Max Irons) goes on the run after returning from lunch to discover that everyone in his office has been killed. Having stumbled on a plot that threatens the lives of millions, he must use his wits to stay one step ahead of his pursuers and to stay alive. The strong cast also includes Mira Sorvino, William Hurt, Brendan Fraser and Bob Balaban.

“American Woman” (10 p.m. Thursday, June 7, Paramount Network): Set in the 1970s, this new comedy stars Alicia Silverstone as Bonnie Nolan, a Los Angeles trophy wife who catches her husband cheating. The unconventional Bonnie decides to leave the marriage and be a single mother to her two daughters – with the help of her two best friends, Kathleen (Mena Suvari) and Diana (Jennifer Bartels).
