Watch: 'American Crime Story: The People vs. OJ Simpson' Teaser Lets Their Voices Tell the Story


With the TV world abuzz with curiosity over “American Horror Story: Hotel” and “Scream Queens” — both set to debut this fall — FX saw now as the ideal time to tease yet another Ryan Murphy project, “American Crime Story: The People vs. OJ Simpson.” Chronicling the trial all of America tracked on TV as it happened, the first season of “American Crime Story” promises to depict “the trial of the century, as you’ve never seen it before.”

So far, we haven’t seen it at all, and after the above teaser…well, we still haven’t.

With FX clearly trying to springboard off of the heat behind anthology series in general as well as the success of “American Horror Story,” this first, brief glimpse does a solid job of both; providing audiences with an eery black and white color palette paired with ominous voice over of events we know all too well — or, at least, think we do. Murphy serves as executive producer on the series.

Watch the first teaser above. “American Crime Story: The People vs. OJ Simpson” premieres in February 2016 on FX.
