AP File Caitlyn Jenner sits down again with Diane Sawyer on tonight’s “20/20.”
TV picks for Friday, April 21
“Dateline NBC” (9 p.m., NBC): In a two-hour installment called “Troubled Waters: The Laci Peterson Story,” newly unearthed interrogation video of convicted murderer Scott Peterson is featured. Peterson denied knowing where his wife Laci was hours after he first reported her missing in 2004. Retired Modesto Police detective Allen Brocchini tells Keith Morrison that Peterson’s answers during that interrogation immediately raised suspicions. Also: Prosecutor Birgit Fladager speaks about the case for the first time on national TV. Of Peterson, Fladager says, “He doesn’t care about anyone but himself, he can be very smooth. But there’s something underneath the surface that is truly evil.”
“Yukon Men” (9 p.m., Discovery): As the unscripted series returns for its sixth season, a controversial new road connects the isolated village of Tanana to Fairbanks for the first time and villagers must face their greatest threat yet — the outside world. Since its founding, the only way in or out of Tanana was by boat or plane, but all of that is about to change.
“20/20” (10 p.m., ABC): On a special edition of the news magazine, Diane Sawyer catches up with Caitlyn Jenner two years after their groundbreaking exclsuive prime-time interview. The former Olympian discusses how her life has gone since making her gender transition. The installment is timed to Jenner’s memoir, “The Secrets of My Life,” which will be released next week by Grand Central Publishing.
“Bosch” (Amazon Prime): Welcome to Season 3 of the L.A. cop drama, which is based on Michael Connelly’s best-selling novels “The Black Echo” and “A Darkness More than Night.” Bosch’s teenage daughter, Maddie, has come to live with him, leaving our title character struggling to handle the everyday responsibilities of being a single father. As if that wasn’t enough, he’s taking on his most formidable cases yet: the murder of a homeless veteran, the slaying of another man tied to several unsolved homicides, and a high-profile murder trial involving a Hollywood director.
“Bill Nye Saves the World” (Netflix): The Science Guy returns with a new show that tackles topics from a scientific point of view, dispelling myths, and refuting anti-scientific claims. But the revelations are real, Bill reminds us, as he neutralizes falsehoods and boosts the truth: “It’s not magic – it’s science!” Each episode dives into a specific topic or concept through lively panel discussions, wide-ranging special correspondent reports and Bill’s very special blend of lab procedure and genuine persona.
“Girlboss” (Netflix): Based on Sophia Amoruso’s autobiography of the same name, this lively new comedy stars Britt Robertson as the founder of the fashion brand Nasty Gal. She goes from dumpster-diving in San Francisco and selling vintage clothes on eBay to building a multi-million dollar online fashion empire by the age of 27.
