What to stream this week: Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and MLB The Show 24

The launch of season 20 of “Grey’s Anatomy” and albums from Justin Timberlake and Kacey Musgraves are some of the new television, movies, music and games headed to a device near you.

Also among the streaming offerings worth your time as selected by The Associated Press’ entertainment journalists: The dramedy “The Girls on the Bus” starring Melissa Benoist that follows female reporters embedded on a presidential campaign, Taylor Swift’s concert film “The Eras Tour” landing on Disney+ and the comedy “Girls5Eva” jumps from Peacock to Netflix for its third season.

NEW MOVIES TO STREAM

Taylor Swift’s concert film “The Eras Tour” is out on Disney+ this week. The streaming cut features five new songs, including “Cardigan.” “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” was a phenomenon at the theatrical box office, grossing over $262 million worldwide in a groundbreaking deal with AMC Theaters, which released the film instead of a traditional Hollywood studio. In her review, AP Music Writer Maria Sherman wrote that the film is, “a near exact replica of her blockbuster concert performance,which recaps all 10 of her studio albums across 17 years of recorded work,” adding “it is the opportunity to have every seat in the house transform into the best seat in the house.”

— Film editor Carla Gutiérrez (“RBG”) makes her directorial debut with “Frida,” an evocative portrait of artist Frida Kahlo told in her own words. Gutiérrez used Kahlo’s diary entries, letters, essays and her paintings to drive the narrative, which delves into her childhood, her marriage, her style, her accident and, of course, her art. “Uncovering her own words and her own voice, I think what we’re presenting is a new way of getting into her world and in her mind and her heart and really understanding the art in a more intimate, raw way,” Gutiérrez told the AP before the film’s Sundance premiere. It’s now on Prime Video.

— Nicolas Cage embraces the drab in Kristoffer Borgli’s “Dream Scenario” as Paul Matthews, a perfectly average college professor, husband and father whose life is turned upside down when millions of strangers start seeing him in their dreams. In her AP review Jocelyn Noveck wrote that “Borgli, the Norwegian writer-director making his English-language debut here (Ari Aster co-produces), is aiming for a broader statement about the nature of fame. And while the topic, which he’s broached before, may not be original, it’s ripe for exploration in the right hands — especially with an actor as inventive and unpredictable as Cage. Fame can be intoxicating, this film is saying, but it can and probably will turn on you in an instant.” It begins streaming on Max on Friday. And for the kids, “Trolls Band Together” arrives on Peacock.

NEW MUSIC TO STREAM

— With each album she releases, Kacey Musgraves demonstrates to her loyal listeners that there are no boundaries in her creative process. The same fan who found her on the celebratory country-as-heck LGBT+ anthem “Follow Your Arrow” from 2013’s “Same Trailer Different Park” followed her through new psychedelic-disco-pop pastures on 2018’s “Golden Hour,” the album that took home the top prize at the 2019 Grammys. Then she pivoted again: with 2021’s “star-crossed,” a meditation on divorce and autonomy, with an uncanny ability to break hearts in less than 15 words: “If this was a movie, love would be enough,” she sings. “But it’s not a movie.” Which brings us to “Deeper Well.” Musgraves’ is once again paving her own path: her country has become folk, her songs are pretty and delicate with lyrics that find profundity in mundanity. It is soft and classic sounding, with hyper-specific language of the current moment. Maybe it dates these songs, maybe it plants them firmly in Musgraves’ reality. Whatever the case, they are affecting.

— On “Man of the Woods,” Justin Timberlake ’s last solo album released in 2018, JT looked to Americana sounds to find his next musical development. It was widely viewed as a critical misstep — a shallow attempt at innovation, mining familiar images of rural country life to mirror his new reality as a father. On “Everything I Thought It Was,” his first new album in six years, JT has done a 180. He’s returned to the ’00s R&B-pop sounds that made him a superstar in the first place. That was evident from the first singles that were released: the moody “Selfish,” and the dreamy reverb of “Drown,”strengthen by Timberlake’s idiosyncratic falsetto. There are a few surprises as well: his boy band (asterisk)NSYNC has a feature, as does Tobe Nwigwe and the Afrobeats starFireboy DML.

NEW SHOWS TO STREAM

— Over the years, the characters on ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” have achieved medical breakthroughs, crisis situations, office romances, staffing shakeups and three hospital name changes. We’ll see what’s in store for season 20 when the popular medical drama returned Thursday after filming was delayed due to the Hollywood strikes. This season, Ellen Pompeo — who plays Dr. Meredith Grey — will not be a series regular but will appear periodically. Shonda Rhimes’ other ABC show, the firefighter drama “Station 19,” also returned Thursday for its seventh and final season. Both shows stream next day on Hulu.
