For the second time in eight days, TV will rerun an in-depth look at the 1992 Los Angeles riots.
On June 8, PBS had “Twilight, Los Angeles”; from 8-10 p.m. next Tuesday (June 16), ABC will have “Let It Fall: Los Angeles 1982-1992″ (shown here).
“Twilight” is a one-woman show, with Anna Deveare Smith portraying all sides of the crisis that followed the Rodney King verdict. “Let It Fall” is a documentary that stepped back a decade, to include the events leading up to the crisis.
The latter was from John Ridley, who has an Academy Award nomination for his “12 Years a Slave” script and Emmy nominations for two seasons of his “America Crime.” The documentary won DuPont and National Board of Review awards; Tuesday’s showing will include an introduction from John Legend.
