ABC's 'Wicked City' adds little fresh blood to serial-killer story

"Wicked City," which premieres Tuesday on ABC, is an anthology crime series set in the nasty world of Los Angeles. First up: serial killers on the Sunset Strip!

Created by Steven Baigelman, who wrote Don Cheadle's forthcoming Miles Davis biopic, it's a broadcast-network, junior-grade take on "True Detective," with certain resemblances to another rock-trimmed, death-filled, city-of-night Southland period piece, NBC's Manson-themed "Aquarius."
