Ridley and Benjamin previously worked together on the Jimi Hendrix biopic All Is By My Side. This will be Andre’s debut as a television regular.

American Crime is also set to feature Felicity Huffman, Timothy Hutton, Richard Cabral, Elvis Nolasco, Lili Taylor, Angelique Rivera, Connor Jessup and Joey Pollari.
