ABC has released two new second season promos for its American Crime TV series. Watch them, below. In the first promo, “Worse,” Anne Blaine (Lili Taylor) reports the rape of her son Taylor (Connor Jessup). Leslie Graham (Felicity Huffman) warns Blaine the situation could get worse.
In the second promo, “Town vs. School,” Timothy Hutton’s Coach Dan Sullivan announces the police will start making arrests. Meanwhile, Blaine just wants someone to do something and get justice for her victimized son.
In case you missed it, read ABC’s description of American Crime, season two:
The second season is set in the U.S. Midwest, representative of the canvas that is America, at two high schools, one public and one private.
Issues of sexual orientation and socioeconomic disparity come to a boil when lurid photos of a high school boy, Taylor Blaine, are posted on social media following a school party. Circumstances become more complicated when Taylor 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 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, principle among them the LaCroixs. Taylor’s girlfriend, Evy, deals with racial tension at her own school, led by Principal Chris Dixon. 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.
Ultimately, support for Taylor comes from an unlikely place – a person who Taylor and his mother have never previously met, and who inhabits the fringes of the online community.
