What’s on TV Monday: ‘And She Could Be Next’ and ‘The Sommerdahl Murders’


OCEAN’S TWELVE (2004) 7:15 p.m. on AMC. This summer’s slate of popcorn movies has been drastically reduced by the pandemic but Steven Soderbergh’s sequel to “Oceans Eleven” could provide some of what moviegoers may be missing. In her review for The New York Times, Manohla Dargis called this crime comedy an “enjoyable, unabashedly trivial caper flick.” George Clooney returns as Danny Ocean, the leader of a gang that specializes in baroque heists. This time, his team is scheming to pay off the casino owner they robbed in the first film. To come up with the money, the crew relocates to Europe, where they quickly find themselves in competition with a master thief.

POV: AND SHE COULD BE NEXT 9 p.m. on PBS (check local listings). The United States is rife with uncertainty as it approaches the 2020 election in November. Recent protests against police misconduct and the coronavirus pandemic have introduced new questions about what direction the country will take. This two-part documentary by Grace Lee and Marjan Safinia looks to the recent past to look forward. It focuses on the midterm elections of 2018 and the contributions made by women of color — as candidates, organizers and guiding voices — to the fight for greater equality and improved democratic representation. But it also offers a broader look at the development of this generation of leaders and suggests that its members have only just begun to make their mark. The second installment airs on Tuesday.
