A new FX limited series, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story premieres on Tuesday, February 2nd. The series will take the audience inside the highly publicized O.J. Simpson trial that captured the attention of a whole country, and the battle of the legal teams to convict or acquit the football legend of double homicide.
“Based on the bookThe Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson by Jeffrey Toobin, it explores the chaotic behind-the-scenes dealings and maneuvering on both sides of the court, and how a combination of prosecution overconfidence, defense shrewdness, and the LAPD’s history with the city’s African-American community gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt,” from FX.
