From True Detective and Fargo to American Horror Story, everybody is getting into the anthology game, and this March, ABC debuts its contribution to the TV trend, American Crime, which is not to be confused with Ryan Murphy’s O.J. Simpson series with Cuba Gooding Jr. (That’s American Crime Story.)
The new limited series from Oscar winner John Ridley (12 Years a Slave) follows the investigation and trial surrounding the racially-charged murder of a veteran in Modesto, California from multiple perspectives. Felicity Huffman and Timothy Hutton lead an impressive cast as the victim’s parents, and EW has the exclusive first look at Emmy nominee Lili Taylor’s character.
Taylor, who will be a recurring guest star, plays Nancy, a woman who also experienced the murder of a child and has been through the trial process before. When it’s time for Huffman’s character to do the same, she leans on Nancy for guidance.
The 11-part series will debut on March 5 on ABC.
