American Horror Story has proved to be a television phenomenon – playing a large part in the popular resurgence of the anthology series format. That being the case, it is no surprise that creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have developed a spinoff show – this one entitled, American Crime Story: The People v O.J. Simpson.

Simpson, the series will be 10 episodes in length, and will view the former professional footballer’s trial from the perspective of the opposing lawyers and their teams – navigating the behind-the-scenes wranglings of the proceedings under international media scrutiny. The show will aim to demonstrate how the jury came to have enough reasonable doubt to acquit the accused.

The trial itself was a dramatic event that gripped the world in 1995, as a jury deliberated charges against O.J. Simpson regarding the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson, »

David Schwimmer To Play a Kardashian

19 December 2014 8:00 PM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Fans of Friends, clam down! David Schwimmer will play Oj Simpson’s lawyer, Robert Kardashian Sr. on American Crime Story. The first season of the spin-off series will focus and follow the case of Oj during the trial. At the time, he was the most famous Kardashian back in the day. The 10 episode story will focus on the lawyers side of the story. Cuba Gooding Jr and Sarah Paulsen have also been confirmed for the show. No time table for when the series will premier.

I am shocked by their casting choice. David is normally seen as the funny guy and he will clearly be playing a very serious role. However, I also feel like he does not look anything like Robert did. It just seems like a random or eager choice to make so they can get the ball rolling. It will certainly be interesting to see if a »

David Schwimmer's new TV role sure is raising a lot of eyebrows. The Friends alum just booked his big return to TV, and it's to play...Robert Kardashian?!

ABC is replacing David Schwimmer with Justin Long.

The New Girl and Mom actor will star in the network’s comedy pilot Irreversible, which previously featured the Friends alum in the lead role, our sister site Deadline reports.

The single-cam project — which didn’t get a series pickup for the 2014-2015 season — centers around Andy (played by Long) and Sarah, a somewhat eccentric, self-absorbed couple, and their trials and tribulations — most of which they bring upon themselves.
