American Crime (Netflix and ABC)

The first season was in 2015, and the third season is now running on ABC. The first two seasons are on Netflix, and based on the first two episodes of Season 1 and one episode of Season 3, it's VERY good. There is nothing predictable about what's going to happen next. The characters are engaging albeit some are likeable and others detestable. The cast is fantastic, although if William H. Macy watches the first season, he might not be pleased with what an awful person his wife, Felicity Huffman, is in character (long way from Sports Night and Aaron Sorkin). What's really cool about the series, I am told, is that the story is different each season, but the cast is the same, but good guys in one season become villains in the next. That's cool! Even if it runs counter to the notion that what you see on screen in actors is how they actually are in real life. In all events, it's a refreshing series, even if it has it's quite unpleasant, albeit exceedingly well done, moments.
