Sometimes, we here at Awards Daily TV miss the mark.
Yes, I know. It’s a shocking confession. Breathe. Everything will be alright.
We admittedly missed the boat on the early 2015 critically acclaimed ABC drama American Crime (not to be confused with the upcoming American Crime Story from Ryan Murphy) which raked in a surprising 10 Emmy nominations and an Emmy win for supporting actress Regina King. Should have seen that one coming. You live, you learn.
American Crime returns on January 6 with a season that looks even more compelling than its freshman season. Still hitting those “ripped from the headlines” hot-button topics, Crime Season Two is set in a Midwest high school where class and sexuality mix in a social media-induced firestorm. Scripted by Oscar-winner John Ridley (12 Years a Slave), Crime features most of the main cast from Season One including Felicity Huffman, Timothy Hutton, Lily Tomlin, Elvis Nolasco and Emmy winner King.
One thing is for sure: our eyes will be glued to this one.
