 What’s on TV Sunday: ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ and ‘Pet Sematary’

CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM 10 p.m. on HBO; stream on HBO platforms. Throughout the 10th season of this semi-autobiographical comedy series, Larry David — playing a fictionalized version of himself — has been preparing to open a coffee shop next door to another establishment just to tick off its owner. In this season finale, he welcomes patrons into his “spite store,” gets a second opinion on his knee injury and instigates a dispute between expectant parents.

KILLER DREAM HOME (2020) 8 p.m. on Lifetime. In this new thriller, a couple (played by Maiara Walsh and John DeLuca) hire an interior designer to spruce up their new home, only to find that she has a dangerous plan to make it her own.

SPY WARS WITH DAMIAN LEWIS 8 p.m. on Smithsonian. If you mourned the end of the period drama “The Americans” a couple years back, consider tuning into this new historical series. Hosted by Damian Lewis (“Billions”), “Spy Wars” revisits some of the most head-spinning espionage missions that took place over the last 50 years. The show takes a deep dive with the help of unclassified material and firsthand accounts from high-ranking officials from the F.B.I., C.I.A., K.G.B. and MI6. The first episode looks at the double agent Oleg Gordievsky, the former K.G.B. colonel who handed top-secret Russian intelligence to the British for more than a decade, and eventually defected to England.

PET SEMATARY (2019) Stream on Amazon and Hulu. This supernatural horror from the directors Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer is the second movie adaptation of the Stephen King novel of the same name. (The filmmaker Mary Lambert first revived the book in 1989.) After moving to an idyllic town in Maine, the Creed family learns that their home abuts a cemetery for the neighborhood’s dead pets. If that doesn’t sound creepy enough, what lies beyond the cemetery is even more menacing. The terror starts after the family cat, Church, is killed by a truck. She gets a special burial but soon enough, the family patriarch, Louis (Jason Clarke), learns that “sometimes dead is better.” Much of the story is the same here, except for one twist that divided critics. Writing in The New York Times, Glenn Kenny said the movie has one too many jump scares, but it also “delivers great unsettling jolts that approximate the power of King’s vision.”

STEPHEN SONDHEIM AND ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER Stream on BroadwayHD. The prolific composers Stephen Sondheim and Andrew Lloyd Webber celebrate their birthdays on March 22. In tribute, BroadwayHD has compiled some of their most notable productions. Among the shows are “Gypsy,” the 1959 musical about a ruthless stage mother (Bette Midler) with lyrics by Sondheim; “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street,” a 1982 production with a score by Sondheim; a 1998 restaging of Webber’s “Cats,” and Cameron Mackintosh’s take on Webber’s “Phantom of the Opera.”
