The story plays out in three time­lines: the 1980 crime and sub­se­quent in­ves­ti­ga­tion, new de­vel­op­ments that arise in 1990, and 2015, as Hays re­flects on the mys­tery.

Up to a point, Katie’s con­cern for her best friend is only nat­u­ral, but as the story un­folds, she moves into ob­ses­sive feel­ings about Jess that have Nick strug­gling to find a way to make Jess see the truth. Mary Grill, Vanessa Walsh and Jaime M. Cal­lica star in this new thriller.

“Amer­i­can Style” (8 p.m., 10 p.m., CNN): Tim Gunn, Donna Karan, An­dre Leon Tal­ley, Christie Brink­ley and Diane von Fursten­berg are among the style and fash­ion icons ap­pear­ing in this new four-part docu-se­ries, which uses archival footage and in­ter­views to high­light the most mem­o­rable mo­ments from fash­ion and pop cul­ture.

Things get off to a rocky start at the open­ing night din­ner, how­ever, when the as­so­ci­a­tion’s pres­i­dent (Janet Kid­der) abruptly drops dead at the podium just as she’s about to name her suc­ces­sor.

The se­ries cast also in­cludes Bradley Whit­ford, Steve Zahn and Lamorne Morris.
