The trial that kept watchers glued to their sets unfolds on the small screen in American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, an upcoming anthology series on FX. Cuba Gooding Jr. will star as O.J. Simpson and Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story: Freak Show) will play prosecutor Marcia Clark in the first installment of the anthology series created by Ryan Murphy and set to focus on a different true crime each season.
American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson is based on Jeffrey Toobin’s book The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson and will be written by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski. Murphy is directing and executive producing the series along with Alexander, Karaszewski, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Brad Falchuk, and Dante Di Loreto.
Filming will begin in early 2015 in LA.
American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson is a look at the O.J. Simpson trial told from the perspective of the lawyers that explores the chaotic behind-the-scenes dealings and maneuvering on both sides of the court, and how a combination of prosecution confidence, defense wiliness, and the LAPD’s history with the city’s African-American community gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt.
