Issa Rae produces the new HBO Max comedy Rap Sh!t, about two estranged high school friends who reunite to form a rap group — starring series writer Aida Osman and Grammy-winning songwriter/rapper Kamillion.

Phaedra Parks teases the season finale of Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip Ex-Wives Club and whether we might see her popping up in any other shows in the Housewives franchise now that she's made new friends on this spin-off. And Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous returns for its fifth season, where one of the Camp Fam will turn on the others, and there's hope they'll be rescued after Kenji's dad arrives.

Plus, entertainment headlines — including H.E.R.'s upcoming debut as Belle in Disney's Beauty and the Beast anniversary celebration; Netflix reveals details about season 3 of Bridgerton, including the addition of three new cast members; the surprise departure of a big New Amsterdam character; and the death of Soap star Rebecca Balding — and trivia.
