Anthology crime drama American Crime returns to Showcase tomorrow, fast-tracked from the US.
The third season, by John Ridley, again stars stars Felicity Huffman, Timothy Hutton and Regina King, with Sandra Oh and Cherry Jones joining.
When a father, Luis Salazar, travels illegally from Mexico into the United States to search for his missing son, he discovers that modern servitude is thriving in the farmlands and agricultural communities. Promised a job and a place to live, these laborers find themselves forced to live in abject poverty. Required to pay for their own food and other essentials, what little money they make is paid back to their employers, and because they will forever be in debt, they can never leave.
9:30pm Monday March 13 on showcase.
