Where: ABC from January 6
Why: The overwhelming first season of American Crime took us into the dark heart of the American family as it followed the murder of a white war veteran supposedly carried out either by a gang of latinos or by a black drug gang. The crime is really a pretext to allow creator John Ridley to address the issue of the racial divide prevalent in the USA confronting our stereotypes along the way.
The second season of this anthology series promises to be just as unmissable, this time it is the rape of a young male student seen through the eyes of his mother who struggles to make progress in uncovering the true facts of what happened. You will be pleased to know Felicity Huffman and Timothy Hutton will be back – but in completely different roles.
