“Dateline NBC” reports on updates in the case of Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey of “Making a Murderer.” New York City Ballet dances in Paris. And “Chef’s Table” presents a new season to drool over.
What’s on TV
RETURN TO MANITOWOC COUNTY: THE STATE OF WISCONSIN VS. STEVEN A. AVERY 10 p.m. on NBC. “Dateline NBC” continues its decade-long report on Mr. Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey, whose conviction in the 2005 sexual assault and killing of the photographer Teresa Halbach was chronicled in “Making a Murderer.” That Netflix documentary series set off a re-examination of the case amid the suggestion that Mr. Dassey, then a teenager of limited intelligence, had been unfairly questioned. In August, a federal judge overturned Mr. Dassey’s conviction, but he remains in prison while that ruling is appealed by the state — a case heard Tuesday in Chicago. Here, Tom Fassbender, a lead investigator in the case, responds to allegations that investigators coerced Mr. Dassey into making a false confession.

NEW YORK CITY BALLET IN PARIS 9 p.m. on PBS. Last summer, the New York City Ballet performed four ballets by its founder George Balanchine, set to the music of French composers, at the Théâtre du Châtelet, and “Great Performances” was there. This first installment features the “Walpurgisnacht Ballet,” choreographed for the 1975 Paris Opera Ballet production of Gounod’s “Faust,” and “La Valse,” a 1951 work featuring music by Ravel.
