Speedy Singhs

(HBO, Friday, 7 p.m.)

A hockey enthusiast since 12, Toronto-based Rajvinder Singh goes to the extent of trimming his hair, and discarding his turban, incurring the wrath of his staunch Sikh father, Darvesh, who wants him to get involved in the family business. Hoping to play professional hockey, Rajvinder, along with other fellow Sikh players, finds himself treated as the object of ridicule by mainstream Caucasian players. He is attracted to law student Melissa Winters while her brother, Dan, offers to coach Rajvinder and his team.

The cast has Richard Roxburgh, Rhys Wakefield and Alice Parkinson.
