When a young couple -- war veteran Matt and his wife, Gwen Skokie -- are attacked in their Modesto, Calif., home, Matt dies and Gwen is left unconscious, barely clinging to life. As news of the brutal crime makes its way through the media, both sets of parents sit vigil by Gwen's bed, hoping for a miracle to keep her with them. The police investigation begins to close in on four suspects in the case, and shock waves radiate through the community, stirring up tensions along ethnic and racial lines. Written by Jwelch5742

Did You Know?


John Ridley was so impressed with Lili Taylor's performance on the first season, in which he didn't envisioned as an important role, that he was determined to have her back for season 2 with a lead part. See more »


The first season of the series takes place in Modesto, California but was filmed mostly in Texas. There are scenes when police vehicles have their lights on without a steady red light present. All police and emergency vehicles in California are required to have at least one steady red light on when the police/emergency lights on the front of police and emergency vehicles are on.

American crime
2 August 2015 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

This series was not only written with such intensity and depth to all the characters, but the performances were equally riveting. I felt that depth of the sociological study of American society was put to the test yet again and raise critical questions as a parent or a family member and how the society we are part of either kills us or makes us fall apart. The needs for the Mexican father to prove to his children they are accepted in USA and the fight by Carter's sister to get him freed at all costs, while Audry and the parents (Tom and Felicity) fighting for their individual truths was profound, John Ripley created a powerful human sociological drama.
