TV picks: 'White Princess,' 'Fargo,' 'Bosch,' 'Veep,' 'Leftovers' and more

The White Princess 2017-12042017-0002
Jodie Comer stars as Princess Elizabeth of York in Starz' "The White Princess"

The White Princess. Jodie Comer stars as Elizabeth York, who (spoiler alert) will eventually become the mother of Henry VIII, in a continuation of the story told in The White Queenbased on the historical fiction of bestselling novelist Philippa Gregory. Some have suggested  this is Game of Thrones for women — as if women didn't watch Game of Thrones. The appearance of Michelle Fairley, Game's Catelyn Stark,  as another fierce mother, Margaret Beaufort, shouldn't hurt the crossover appeal. 8 p.m. Sunday, Starz.

The Leftovers. Damon Lindelof (Lost) and novelist Tom Perrotta have just this eight-episode final season, beginning this weekend, to get their characters' affairs in order. Don't expect the finish to  explain how 2 percent of the world's population disappeared in an instant. For people who can live with ambiguity, this is surreal and wonderful television.  9 p.m. Sunday, HBO.

Guerrilla. Idris Elba alert: He stars, along with Freida Pinto, in this new limited series from John Ridley (American Crime, 12 Years a Slave) about the formation of a radical underground movement in 1970s London.  9 p.m. Sunday, Showtime.

Girls. After six seasons, Lena Dunham's series about some very specific millennials in Brooklyn comes to an end, and our feelings about that will probably be as complicated as ever. 10 p.m. Sunday, HBO.

Veep.  Julia Louis-Dreyfus returns for a sixth hilarious season as Selina Meyer, whose brief presidency may have come to a humiliating end but whose ambition continues unabated. 10:30 p.m. Sunday, HBO.

Frontline: Last Days of Solitary. Harrowing two-hour report, more than three years in the filming, looks at the practice of solitary confinement through the experiences of inmates from Maine State Prison. The prison granted unusual access as it tried to reduce its use of the practice, which had its roots in a failed, religion-inspired experiment here in Philadelphia.  9 p.m. Tuesday, WHYY12.

Famous in Love. Bella Thorne stars as a college student whose life changes overnight when she's cast, Cinderella-style, in a big movie. Behind the scenes, there's lots of intrigue. Which is appropriate, since it's following the final season premiere of  Pretty Little Liars. 9 p.m. Tuesday, Freeform.

Fargo. One of the best things about Noah Hawley's ongoing homage to the classic Coen brothers film is that every season brings a new story, so if you've missed the first two (available on Hulu), you're still good. Ninety-minute season premiere kicks off with a long-simmering dispute between two brothers (both played by Ewan McGregor) getting way out of hand, the way things on Fargo always do. Also starring this season: Carrie Coon, Mary Elizabeth Winstead. 10 p.m. Wednesday, FX.

Bosch. Philadelphia's Titus Welliver returns for a third season as Los Angeles police detective Harry Bosch in series based on the Michael Connelly bestsellers. Friday, Amazon.

Girlboss. Charlize Theron is an executive producer on this new series loosely based on the early-career, pre-bankruptcy experiences of Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso,  the e-commerce entrepreneur who got her start selling vintage clothing on eBay. Britt Robertson (Under the Dome) stars as Sophia, whose character could be as polarizing as Girls' Hannah Horvath (Lena Dunham), though I'm not sure she's as interesting. Friday, Netflix.
