Los Angeles’s Paley Center Hosts ‘American Crime’ Screening

Check out photos from the ‘American Crime’ Season 3 premiere screening from Wednesday at Los Angeles’s Paley Center for Media – and watch the trailer.

On Wednesday night The Paley Center for Media in Los Angeles gathered the cast and crew of ABC’s critically acclaimed drama American Crime for a screening and panel discussion ahead of the show’s Season 3 premiere.

The new season begins March 12 and tells the story of five characters who are all struggling to survive in Alamance County, North Carolina. As is the case for each cycle of the anthology series their stories will become intertwined.

The underlying issues of the season include the economic divide that obviously impacts the main characters, as well as labor issues and the idea of individual rights. If you weren’t able to attend Wednesday’s panel and want to see the trailer for Season 3, you can watch it here.

Felicity Huffman (who plays Jeanette Hesby), Benito Martinez (Luis Salazar), Connor Jessup (Coy Henson), Richard Cabral (Isaac Castillo), Mickaëlle X. Bizet (Gabrielle Durand) and Anna Mulvoy-Ten (Shae Reese) were joined at The Paley Center by American Crime creator John Ridley and producer Michael McDonald to discuss what’s next.

The panel was part of The Paley Center’s year-round commitment to television screenings, events and discussions.

Next up is the organization’s annual PaleyFest LA in which some of TV’s best new series and a few old favorites will be honored. You can find the full list of what stars and shows are part of PaleyFest, which begins on March 17, here.

Tickets for PaleyFest LA and all of The Paley Center’s upcoming programs, as well as annual memberships that allow access to ticket pre-sales and to the Center’s standing exhibits at its Beverly Hills location, are available at the organization’s website.
