American Crime - Episode 2.01 - Press Release



ISSUES OF SEXUAL ORIENTATION AND SOCIOECONOMIC DISPARITY COLLIDE WHEN LURID PHOTOS OF A HIGH SCHOOL BOY ARE POSTED ON SOCIAL MEDIA FOLLOWING A SCHOOL PARTY, ON THE SEASON PREMIERE OF ABC’S “AMERICAN CRIME”

Issues of sexual orientation and socioeconomic disparity come to a roil when lurid photos of a high school boy, Taylor Blaine, are posted on social media following a school party, on the season premiere of “American Crime,” WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 6 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EST) on the ABC Television Network.

In the season premiere episode, “Season Two: Episode One,” after the shocking photos of Taylor are posted, circumstances become more complicated when he accuses two players on an elite private high school’s championship basketball team – Kevin LaCroix and Eric Tanner – of drugging, assaulting and then posting the pictures of him online. The team’s head coach, Dan Sullivan, tries to unite the players while overlooking the dysfunction of his own family. Headmistress Leslie Graham struggles to maintain the school’s reputation in the face of these accusations of privilege and cover up. Taylor’s mother, Anne, remains a steadfast supporter of her son despite being publicly assailed by the school’s wealthy families. Taylor’s girlfriend, Evy, deals with racial tension at her own school, led by Principal Chris Dixon. And while the two schools at the center of the story are worlds apart in status, the lives of the students and teachers at both become inextricably linked.

“American Crime” stars Felicity Huffman as Leslie Graham, Timothy Hutton as Dan Sullivan, Lili Taylor as Anne Blaine, Elvis Nolasco as Chris Dixon, Trevor Jackson as Kevin LaCroix, Connor Jessup as Taylor Blaine, Joey Pollari as Eric Tanner, Angelique Rivera as Evy Dominguez and Regina King as Terri LaCroix.
