American Crime
TV Series (2015-2017). 3 Seasons. 29 Episodes. A crime tv series with same actors (Felicity Hoffman, Timothy Hutton, Regina King, Lili Taylor) but different characters. In the first season, a young couple in Modesto, California, were attacked in their home. The case sends shock waves into the community stirring up tensions across racial lines in this gritty drama. The lives of the participants in a trial with significant racial motives are forever changed during the legal process.

In the pilot episode, following the home invasion murder of Matt Skokie that left his wife Gwen comatose, four suspects are taken into custody. There's Tony Gutiérrez, a teen who got in way over his head wanting to get a rise out of his dedicated and hard-working father, Alonzo Gutiérrez; Hector Tontz, a man who has always lived on the fringes of society and struggles to survive; and Carter Nix and Aubry Taylor, two lost souls whose addiction to drugs and to each other has grown to be destructive.

Though the suspects fit the profile, their situations are far more complicated than anyone would have initially believed. Enter Russ Skokie and Barb Hanlon, Matt's divorced and estranged parents, who arrive to bury their son as well as seek justice for his killing, only to discover their murdered son may have been far from an innocent bystander.
