What to watch this weekend: ‘Dirty Money’ doc on Netflix, Grammy Awards

THE PRICE OF GREED: DIRTY MONEY

The new investigative documentary series Dirty Money from Alex Gibney (Going Clear) explores untold stories of scandal and corruption in the world of business. It will surely leave you raging from the couch. The series uses firsthand accounts from both perpetrators and their victims along with some behind-the-scene footage. Dirty Money goes deep into dealings of companies including Volkswagen, HSBC and even Trump Inc. Each episode tackles a different company and crime: "Hard NOx" explores VW and automakers working with the government, "The Confidence Man" deals with Donald Trump's business career and "Drug Short" explores Wall Street and Big Pharma, including infamous pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli.  Now available on Netflix.

A LANDMARK NIGHT: GRAMMY AWARDS

Comedian James Corden hosts the 60th annual Grammy Awards from Madison Square Garden. Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar and Bruno Mars lead the nominations.  Jay-Z or Lamar could make history Sunday night: Either could have only the third rap-based album to win Album of the Year. And their songs could be the first in rap to win Song or Record of the Year. Of course, many tune into the Grammys for the performances, and this year's acts include Cardi B, Luis Fonsi, Childish Gambino, Kesha, Lady Gaga and more. 7:30 p.m. Sunday, CBS.

TRUE CRIME WATCH: TRUTH AND LIES

Shows exploring true crime and scandals from the 1990s are so hot right now.  If you just can't get enough of the stories that inspired critically acclaimed series, check out ABC's Truth and Lies documentary series. Some of the episodes of Truth and Lies that are available on Hulu include ones on Tonya Harding, the Menendez brothers, the siege at Waco, the Manson Family murders and the murder of Laci Peterson. They're must-watch TV for every true crime buff.

Unless you own the films, streaming through HBO is the only way to watch Sorcerer's Stone, Prisoner of Azkaban and the other six movies. If you don't have HBO, both Amazon and Hulu offer HBO add-ons through their own sites. Accio, remote.
