There has been much anticipation about the upcoming series “American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson,” from the same producers as the Emmy-winning series “American Horror Story.” The new series, created by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, stars Cuba Gooding, Jr., Sarah Paulson, John Travolta, David Schwimmer, Courtney B. Vance, Nathan Lane, Jordana Brewster, Selma Blair, Billy Magnussen, Connie Britton, Steven Pasquale, Sterling K. Brown, Kenneth Choi, and Malcolm-Jamal Warner. And in the teasers above and below, we finally get to hear some of them speak!
The official series synopsis reads: “Based on the book ‘The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson’ by Jeffrey Toobin, the limited series is a look at the O.J. Simpson trial told from the perspective of the lawyers. 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.”
“American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson” premieres February 2016 on FX. Watch the new clips above and below.
