The People v. O.J. Simpson Creators on Their Relationship With Veracity and Why All Film Is Manipulation

4 February 2016 11:45 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story may have been Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski’s first TV project, but it’s right in their wheelhouse. You may know the creators of the FX show as the writers behind biopics like The People vs. Larry Flynt, Ed Wood, and Man on the Moon. The writing duo joined The Vulture TV Podcast this week to discuss their relationship with veracity, what they left out of the show, and why all film is manipulation. What follows is an edited transcript of their conversation, which you can listen to in full here.You two have been working as a team in film for a long time. What made you decide to move to TV for the first time for this project? Scott Alexander: For this project, we kind of only saw it as a television show. We've only written features before, »

‘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 »

'Making a Murderer' vs. 'O.J. Simpson': Fame, Justice and True Crime TV

1 February 2016 12:55 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Jurors go with the narrative that makes sense," Johnnie Cochran (Courtney B. Vance) explains to his fellow Dream Team lawyers in FX's The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. "Our job is to tell a story." That's the job of this 10-episode miniseries, created by writers Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski and produced under the Ryan Murphy banner, too. But the story it's telling isn't about whether or not the beloved ex-running back and small-time movie star savagely murdered his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and a 25-year-old actor/waiter named Ronald Goldman. »

Review: FX's compelling 'The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story'

1 February 2016 9:03 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Fame is fleeting," Robert Kardashian tells his kids in an early episode of FX's The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story (it debuts tomorrow night at 10). "It's hollow. It means nothing at all without a virtuous heart." Young Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, and Rob look at their father like he's speaking some long-dead language they have no hope of understanding. Their dad is on TV, and getting priority seating at overbooked restaurants, all because he's famous — and only famous, at that, because his best friend happens to be Simpson, the world's most famous accused murderer. Of course fame means everything to these kids. The People v. O.J. — the first installment of a new FX anthology series from Ryan Murphy (American Horror Story, Glee), and not to be confused with ABC's similarly-titled anthology series American Crime — isn't really a Keeping Up with the Kardashians origin story. The kids only appear »

‘People v. O.J. Simpson’ Producers on the Secrets of that Famous Trial: ‘It’s Stranger Than Fiction’

29 January 2016 3:32 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Screenwriters Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander are self-proclaimed “total TV novices.” Renowned for their film credits — which range from “Big Eyes” to “The People vs. Larry Flynt” — they’d never tried their hands at television. It took the persuasive powers of producers Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson and the prospect of adapting Jeffrey Toobin’s book, “The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson,” to finally lure them to the medium.

“It was just exploding with characters and weird incidents and odd detail,” says Alexander. “We love that stuff.” They knew that the story could only be told in a series — a two-hour movie wouldn’t suffice. So they lent their prodigious talents to the script, and serve as executive producers — along with Ryan Murphy, Jacobson and Simpson — on FX’s “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” which debuts February 2nd.

How 'The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story' Aims to Get the Conversation Started

29 January 2016 2:52 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

How much do you know about the trial of O.J. Simpson? You might think you know a lot, but you don't know nearly as much as Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, the award-winning writers of acclaimed biopics for unconventional figures like "Ed Wood" and "The People vs. Larry Flynt," who served as showrunners and executive producers for the upcoming FX drama "The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story." Indiewire spoke with Alexander and Karaszewski at the TCA Winter Press Tour about the series, and, well, it's complicated. It's not so much that there are spoilers in the below interview, as it is that we dig into the series in much the same way that "American Crime Story" digs into the tale of O.J. Simpson's 1994 arrest and subsequent prosecution for the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. In short, we get into a few details well-known »
