Lila, who? Meet your new murder mystery TV obsession

Kate Stanhope

Viewers have spent months obsessing over who killed Lila Stangard on ABC's hit freshman drama How to Get Away With Murder. But another mysterious and suspenseful murder case is about to grab hold of #TGIT viewers.

American Crime, premiering Thursday, March 5 at 10/9c on ABC, follows the aftermath of the murder of a war vet and the assault of his wife. Several suspects from wildly different backgrounds - a young couple addicted to drugs, a man from the outskirts of society and a naïve teen who's in way over his head - are brought into custody, but the case only becomes more complicated and complex from there.
