ABC’s Critically Acclaimed Series ‘American Crime’ to Screen at CSUB

The ABC television network will host a special early screening for one of TV’s most talked about shows, “American Crime,” at California State University, Bakersfield at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, March 6, in the Student Union Multipurpose Room. The audience will get a chance to watch advance episodes before its third season premiere on Sunday, March 12, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.

This season, “American Crime" takes place in North Carolina and explores issues of forced labor, sex trafficking, immigration, socioeconomic divides, individual rights, and how we are all a part of an economy that often prospers on economic oppression. The series is produced by ABC Studios.

“We are excited to be able to work with the creative team on American Crime to give our campus community an opportunity to be one of the first audiences to watch advance episodes of the third season," said CSUB Director of Campus Programming Emily Poole. "This show resembles issues that face our community and members who work in the agricultural community and hits close to home.”

“One of the storylines that 'American Crime' takes on this season deals with important issues that exist within the agricultural and farmland communities but are often ignored," said executive producer Michael McDonald. "I’m looking forward to sharing our story and discussing these issues with the CSU Bakersfield faculty and students who have graciously welcomed us into their community.”

A Q&A panel featuring executive producer McDonald, staff writer Moises Zamora, and actor Clayton Cardenas will take place following the screening.
