Viewers we’re surprised last year on “American Crime” when you played a woman with bigoted views. Now you’re portraying a woman who is more pleasant on the surface but is more cunning and dangerous. What was your response when John Ridley first talked to you about her?

I was pleased. As we were building Leslie, I said to John, “She wants to be someone that people are drawn to.” Men find her attractive, but women don’t find her threatening. They go, “I like her skirt, I like her hair.” She wins people over. She’s such a chess player and a mastermind, a politician.

ABC has slotted the second season of its acclaimed anthology series “American Crime” for Wednesdays starting Jan. 6, the network announced. It will occupy the timeslot currently occupied by “Nashville,” which will be taking a winter hiatus.

The initial season of “American Crime” last spring was not much of a ratings performer on Thursdays for ABC, but earned plaudits from critics and 10 Emmy nominations. Regina King took home the Emmy for supporting actress in a miniseries.

ABC had originally planned to air the second season of another anthology series, “Secrets and Lies,” for Wednesdays at 10 during the “Nashville” hiatus but switched gears to “American Crime.” Its competition will include NBC’s “Chicago PD” and CBS’ “Code Black” as well as the concluding episodes of FX’s “American Horror Story: Hotel.”

FX hasn’t announced a premiere date or timeslot for its upcoming O.J. Simpson miniseries “American Crime Story,” which is expected to air in 2016, though it’s possible the network had penciled in the Wednesday at 10 slot where “American Horror Story” resides.

This season of the anthology series is set in the U.S. Midwest, representative of the canvas that is America, at two high schools, one public and one private. Issues of sexual orientation and socioeconomic disparity come to a boil when lurid photos of a high school boy, Taylor Blaine, are posted on social media following a school party. Executive producer John Ridley discussed the season two storyline with Variety during the summer.
