What’s on TV Friday: ‘Pose’ and ‘Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics and Men’


The first season of “Pose” begins streaming on Netflix. And the first episode of the four-part Wu-Tang Clan docuseries hits Showtime.

POSE Stream on Netflix. If you were dazzled by Billy Porter’s elaborate entrance at the Met Gala on Monday night, you may also enjoy his performance as Pray Tell, the M.C. of extravagant balls, on “Pose.” The show, which includes Ryan Murphy as co-creator, transports audiences back to 1987 New York, where gay, transgender and minority youth started walking in the city’s vogueing competitions. Set around the same time as “Paris Is Burning,” the series feels like “an attempt to better understand the present by re-examining the 1980s as an origin story,” James Poniewozik wrote in his New York Times review. “It’s a story of struggle — the AIDS crisis is a constant shadow — but it spotlights its characters’ aspirations,” he added. “It’s sincere, buoyant and fun, stunningly designed, mindful that a show about balls should be capable of having one.”

SHÉHÉRAZADE Stream on Netflix. This French love story centers on two teenagers and unfolds in Marseille’s gritty underbelly. It follows Zachary, played by Dylan Robert, who is released from juvenile detention. He meets Shéhérazade (Kenza Fortas), a former classmate who is a prostitute. Zachary, in need of cash, begins to work as her pimp, and their working relationship bleeds into a complicated romance.
