TV:

The new animated series "Creature Comforts," presents the voice of the people from the mouths of hilarious animated animals. The series, "featuring the voices of your fellow Americans," is based on an Oscar-winning short film that also spawned a hit series on British TV. It is produced by Aardman Animations, which made the feature films "Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of The Were-Rabbit" and "Chicken Run." "Creature Comforts" premieres on CBS Monday at 8 p.m. ET.

Kirstie Alley stars in the comedy "Write & Wrong" as an award-winning screenwriter too old to land work. She plays Byrdie Langdon, who, nearing 50, is considered over the hill in youth-centric Hollywood.

In desperation, Byrdie persuades Jason, her handsome young nephew and a car salesman by trade, to pose as a screenwriter using her scripts. The ploy succeeds — until Jason falls for Andrea, the studio development executive.

Eric Christian Olsen and Stacy Grant also star in the Lifetime film, which airs Sunday at 8 p.m.
