What’s on TV Sunday: ‘On Becoming a God in Central Florida’ and ‘Jawline’

ON BECOMING A GOD IN CENTRAL FLORIDA 10 p.m. on Showtime. Following in the same tradition as shows like “Breaking Bad,” “Weeds” and “Ozark,” this dark comedy series focuses on the often disastrous lengths that a person will go to achieve their version of the American dream. In this iteration, drug trafficking is swapped for the nefarious trappings of a multilevel marketing scheme, one that leaves Krystal Stubbs (Kirsten Dunst), a Florida water park employee, destitute after her husband (a mulleted Alexander Skarsgard) goes all in. Using her gumption and business savvy, Stubbs cons her way up the cultlike pyramid scheme with help from one of its loyal followers (Théodore Pellerin), only to wreak havoc on those closest to her. The series’s oddball Florida setting, ostentatious 1990s fashion and colorful characters creates room for it to join some of the most delightfully weird shows on TV right now, like AMC’s “Lodge 49″ and HBO’s “Los Espookys.”

POWER 8 p.m. on Starz. This network’s most-watched franchise picks up for its sixth season. Ghost (Omari Hardwick) attempts to get even with Tommy, tries to make headway on the Queens Child Project and works to cut ties with his criminal past. At the same time, the Feds are growing closer to convicting him. In this season, 50 Cent, who also serves as the show’s executive producer, will make his directorial debut.
