Here at ET, we’re obsessed with a lot of things -- and for the week of Feb. 13 to Feb. 19, this is what we’re most excited about:

Why We’re Obsessed With ‘Imposters’

Now in its second week, Bravo’s new scripted seriestells the story of a con artist named Maddie (Inbar Lavi), whose unwitting victims (Ron Heaps, Enlisted’s Parker Young, who promises to ET that he’ll be shirtless before the end of the first season, and Marianne Rendon) decide to track her down. What starts off as a game of cat and mouse quickly turns into a road trip comedy as Ezra, Richard and Jules all learn to bond, but also try their hand at some small-time cons. “But we’re not very good at it,” Heaps says of his character’s adventures, while adding that the show is full of intrigue, heartbreak and surprise, the biggest of which may be Uma Thurman’s upcoming guest arc as the ultimate fixer who throws Maddie off her game. “I was on set when Uma had this amazing scene with Inbar and I think it’s one of the best things I’ve seen her do. She’s so up for it!”

Imposters airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.

Why We’re Obsessed With ‘Allied’

In case you missed the Brad Pitt-Marion Cotillard spy drama in theaters, here’s your chance to catch up when Allied gets its home release. The extras -- including ET’s exclusive look at the visual effects in the film -- show just how complex a film Allied actually is. And here we thought it was because of all the relationship drama that happened off-screen!

Allied, directed by Robert Zemeckis, debuts on Digital HD Tuesday, Feb. 14, and on Blu-ray/DVD on Tuesday, Feb. 28.

Why We’re Obsessed With ‘Doubt’

CBS’ new legal drama is getting tons of buzz thanks to its high-profile cast, which includes Katherine Heigl, who is making her return to TV after NBC’s State of Affairs failed to generate any traction and was canceled after one season. The show -- which looks to fill the void left by The Good Wife -- also stars Laverne Cox, who after her historic Emmy nomination for her role on Orange Is the New Black is the first transgender actor to land a series regular role on prime-time TV. “I’m so excited,” Cox told ET just hours after CBS announced it was picking up the series. Cox will play defense attorney Cameron Wirth, who, according to the actress, is “extremely passionate about her work and has a little bit of a troubled private life.” Wirth and her colleagues will defend high-profile clients, with some procedural stories ripped from the headlines.

Doubt premieres Wednesday, Feb. 15 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.

Why We’re Obsessed With ‘The Good Fight’ 

The Good Wife ended with the slap heard around the world as Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) was thrown under the bus by Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies). Now, in creators Michelle and Robert King’s new spinoff, Diane’s claws are out as she tries to reclaim what’s left of her fortune and reputation after a Ponzi scheme leaves her broke and shut out of the law firm she helped build from the ground up. The Good Fight sees her joining a previously all-African American law firm as she reunites with Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo) and Marissa Gold (Sarah Steele).

The Good Fight premieres Sunday, Feb. 19 on CBS All Access.

Why We’re Obsessed With ‘Big Little Lies’

Adapted from Liane Moriarty’s best-selling book, Big Little Lies tells the story of three mothers of first graders whose lives start to unravel as their secrets start to pile up. The miniseries stars Reese Witherspoon, doing some of her best work since Legally Blonde and Election, Nicole Kidman and Shailene Woodley, both of whom bring unexpected layers to their characters’ state of arrested development. While a murder frames the whole show, it’s the ensemble cast that brings this story to life and keeps you coming back for all seven episodes.

Big Little Lies premieres Sunday, Feb. 19 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
