The Beautiful Discomfort of John Ridley’s American Crime

When many of us reach for our television remotes, we also grab our cell phones, computers or iPads to connect to Twitter, Facebook or some other social media site to engage with millions around the world as we tune in to our favorite shows. Watching television while interacting on social media is the new normal. For many, this new form of engagement is wonderful. Yet I’m curious as to whether this constant stimulation, connection and interaction ever really allows us to “feel” what we are witnessing.

Enter Academy Award winner (12 Years a Slave) John Ridley’s American Crime, a new ABC drama, which asks us to not just engage with others on social media, but to pause and engage with our hearts. Much of what we watch on television is a form of art, which has historically introduced us to many individuals, narratives, ideas and questions that challenge what we know (or think) to be true. As we engage with art, many of us experience moments of feeling uncomfortable. American Crime, set in Modesto, Calif., is a work of art that embodies this characteristic to captivate its audience in an unnerving way. As Executive Producer and creator John Ridley explains, “(the show is) edited so the audience will not disengage.”

American Crime begins with the murder of a young military veteran and the brutal assault of his wife, who is subsequently hospitalized and fighting for her life. As their parents are informed of this tragic news, the audience begins to become familiar with the world of other characters connected to the murder. “Unlike most television,” as Executive Producer Michael McDonald describes, “which focuses on the extremes, the poor or the privileged.”

American Crime centers itself on the lives of “everyday” Americans, and shows how complex and contradictory we all can be. As John Ridley states, “We like to think that we are consistent. And yet we are not. And that’s ok. After watching, I hope we all walk away knowing we are all a little of this and a little of that. Every person is complex. And complexity makes us beautiful and that’s ok and that uniqueness is beautiful.”

As viewers watch American Crime, seeing this “beauty” may not be immediately evident due to the uncomfortable subject matter that this drama so intentionally confronts. Salient issues including race, class, immigration, drug use, and faith are weaved throughout each episode, forcing the viewer to feel uneasy and without escape. Ridley wants this certain level of discomfort as he explains, “Discomfort is usually a sign of growth and change. I would like a level of discomfort. This is not business as usual or story telling as usual. This show will help us move out of our ruts. “

As our country celebrates 50 years since Selma and continues to brace for legislation on voting rights, immigration and marriage equality, moving out of our individual ruts and static thinking about how we engage with others is exactly what we need to achieve. As Michael McDonald explains, “I want people to examine and reflect on our own biases and get to a place where we can accept each other.”

Acceptance and forgiveness cannot happen without being self-reflective. American Crime, in many ways, holds up a mirror to us all, causing internal and hopefully external awareness to occur around the ways we care for each other. John Ridley explains, “We all carry biases. Can we see them and evolve?” That evolution is only made possible through feelings of discomfort. As we all tune in to watch American Crime while squirming in our seats and interrogating our prejudices, we should embrace the words of African American author Pearl Cleage, “Discomfort is always a necessary part of enlightenment,” and never turn away.

After a physical fight with Tony, Matt mysteriously disappears and Tom, fearing the worst, fires Tony. What follows is a slippery spiral of confrontations and suspicions as Tom becomes increasingly paranoid. Step by step he moves in a direction of fear leading to meetings with a top hit man (Tony Danza) and a cast of unsavory characters. Also starring Lily Rabe and Frank Whaley. Written & directed by the award-winning Thomas Farone.

The Death of Meriwether Lewis: A Historic Crime Scene Investigation

The Death of Meriwether Lewis: A Historic Crime Scene Investigation


Even after more than two centuries, mystery continues to surround Meriwether Lewis’s death—did the famous explorer commit suicide or was he murdered? Recently revealed truths and deconstructed myths are woven together in this fascinating account to form an unforgettable tale of political corruption, assassins, forged documents, and skeletal remains. New research implicating General James Wilkinson—commanding general of the U.S. Army and coconspirator of Aaron Burr—as the assassin is thoroughly discussed, while riveting testimony from 13 leading experts in wound ballistics, forensic anthropology, suicide psychology, grave-site exhumation, and handwriting analysis offers new insight into what Lewis’s exhumed remains might reveal. The new evidence not only destroys the foundation of suicide arguments by proving the primary evidence is a forgery, it also proves the Indian Agent escorting Lewis lied about his activities on the day of Lewis’s death. The book also contains evidence of a previously unknown plot by Aaron Burr to seize New Orleans and invade Mexico in 1809, a repeat of his 1806 plot. It explains why Lewis suddenly changed his plans to travel to Washington, DC, by boat, and instead chose to go overland on the Natchez Trace, where he met his untimely death on October 11, 1809, at age 35.

Here’s Why We’re Actually Still Watching Crime Shows

Since I write television, allow me to begin by stating the obvious: America has become more polarized than at any time since the 1960s. People on opposite sides of the partisan divide have not only ceased listening to each other, they are also looking to buy homes and rent apartments in politically homogenous neighborhoods (and cities!); so that the newspaper resting at the bottom of their cages won’t ruffle their ideological feathers; so they can tell birds singing different songs to flock off.

In another chapter from the hard to believe, crossing party lines has become a criminal offense, so that it’s impossible to get anything done without offering insult to one side or the other. And every action by moderately opposing forces is greeted with hysteria. Democrats adopt a Republican health care proposal from the 1990s, which was actually implemented by a Republican governor (and eventual Republican presidential nominee), and the rage on the right cannot be contained. Democrats furiously condemn a policy of fighting a war in Iraq and keeping prisoners in Guantanamo and the ethics of drone strikes and then, when they gain power…oh, the list is too long.

For better or worse, the justice system has become the last refuge for those of us looking for common ties with our fellow Americans. The need to arrest criminals and put them on trial transcends our petty differences, and allows varied communities to unite in common cause. Murder is terribly hard to politicize. As one of Henry the II’s sons says in The Lion in Winter, “I’ve never heard a corpse ask how it got so cold.”

And homicide investigations are largely successful. In most big cities, perhaps especially in Los Angeles and New York, every effort is made to comply with the law while hunting down those who have not. The LAPD polls regularly as the most respected municipal institution in Los Angeles. Our law enforcement agencies exist as working proof that government can move competently – even with bravery and selflessness – to do the right thing.

The unconscious fantasy element of procedural drama has evolved, from marveling at the intelligence of a particular detective, into a wistful desire that our entire body politic could put aside our mostly imaginary arguments long enough to focus on the crisis at hand: to drop our opinions in favor of the pattern of facts.

We love a good whodunit; bringing a murderer to heel satisfies our heroic impulses, and unites the audience with shared, public approval. If only we could figure out how to respect each other as well as we do the abstract principles of the justice system! That, ladies and gentlemen, is a mystery we ought to solve together.

In the meantime, procedural drama will have to do.
