‘The People v. O.J. Simpson’ Recap: Building a Case for Murder

2 February 2016 8:25 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler alert: Do not read until you’ve watched episode one of “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” titled “From the Ashes of Tragedy.”

It seems almost silly to put a spoiler alert at the top of this recap: We all know how this story ends. But twenty years have passed since the verdict was read — and “The People v. O.J. Simpson” painstakingly rebuilds the case from the beginning, filling in details we may have forgotten, while also carefully charting backstories for all the players we thought we knew.

Most tellingly, the first episode — as directed by Ryan Murphy, who also executive produces the series — opens on footage of the L.A. riots in the wake of the Rodney King verdict. Newscasters intone: “It’s going to take years to recover from this.” Indeed.

Fast forward two years later, and a limo driver is waiting to take O.J. Simpson »

File this under gallows humor: When Marcia Clark first heard the name “O.J. Simpson,” American Crime Story informs us, she had no idea who he was.

And though Clark would go on to prosecute the beloved sports star for two deaths in one of the biggest murder cases in United States history the lawyer at first had to be reminded that he was “the guy in the Hertz commercials.”

Review: The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story Is a Superb, True Crime Must-See

There are media frenzies … and there are media frenzies. You can make a similar distinction when discussing legal circuses and celebrity meltdowns. The O.J. Simpson murder trial, a public narrative that delivered a series of sensational jolts from start to finish, consistently falls into the second camp. Everything veers to the right side of the ellipses - the sensational side, the side that goes too far, almost to the improbable. The case, which ended with the acquittal of Simpson on two counts of murder, was referred to as "The Trial of the Century" - the last one - and within »

“Our position with the show was, we were interested in telling you things you didn’t know,” executive producer Ryan Murphy tells Variety ahead of the Feb. 2 series premiere. “Because we all know that case has been such a part of the culture and has been for so long.”

“I thought I knew everything about it — I was so into it,” he adds. “But when I read the first two scripts, there was so much that I didn’t know at all.”
