Twenty-one years after one of the most controversial cases in pop culture, FX is revisiting the events leading up to O.J. Simpson’s acquittal in the new series, American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson. This is the latest franchise from FX in the same vain as American Horror Story.
The 10-part mini series will focus less on the actual crime, as there will be no flashbacks of the incident, instead according to Shadow & Act, audiences will see the case from the perspective of the lawyers.
The series “…will explore 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 black community gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt.”
From the looks of the trailer, Cuba and Courtney are giving Emmy worthy performances. Did you watch the trial back in 1994/1995? Are you interested in seeing the mini-series?
