The use of streaming services to watch movies and series programming has exploded during the coronavirus pandemic.

So has the viewing of news programming, but when we need an escape, Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime Video are where many of us are going.

A pair of streaming highlights in April have local connections.

Tulsa's Jeanne Tripplehorn stars in "Mrs. America," a new limited series debuting on April 15 on Hulu as part of its "FX on Hulu" promotion, and a new Netflix film, "The Main Event," is co-written by Holland Hall graduate Zach Lewis, who also wrote the holiday movie "Klaus."

The following are April highlights among movies and series you can find on Netflix, Hulu and Prime Video.
