This Month’s Highlight

The Other Two

The Other Two is one of the strongest comedies out there right now. Starring Drew Tarver and Heléne Yorke as the other two siblings of pop star Chase Dreams (Case Walker), the third season sees the brother and sister at the top of their game. Tarver’s Cary is acting with hopes to be the “gay Albert Einstein” and win an Oscar while Yorke’s Brooke continues to manage Chase with her mom (the Molly Shannon). (Streaming May 4.)
