Storyline

The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story is a limited series that takes you inside the O.J. Simpson trial with a riveting look at the legal teams battling to convict or acquit the football legend of double homicide. Based on the book The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson by Jeffrey Toobin, 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.

Trivia

The exterior scenes of the front of Nicole Brown Simpson's condo for season one were shot on an outdoor set constructed in a driveway, several houses down on the same street as the original house. It was built in a long driveway, and heavy use of CGI was utilized in post-production to best match how it would have looked from across the street in 1994. This included digitally adding foliage, a second story to the condo and altering the curb side area. See more »

Goofs

On the show, the judge at the preliminary hearing was played by a man. In reality the judge was a woman, Kathleen Kennedy Powell. See more »

User Reviews

 
Season 2 is good but too much conjecturepresented as history
28 January 2019 | by laragazzaSee all my reviews

My only complaint about Season 2 is that there is to much conjecture about Cunanan's relationship with his some of his victims. We see an entire episode about him traveling with David, conversations they have, David's reluctance to escape...no one but Andrew and David knows what really happened in the apartment or the days following, or what conversations took place. Maybe Cunanan had a gun on him the entire time. Same with Miglin and the discussions about his Space Needle, or Miglin willingly allowing Cunanan to tape him up. Things may have in fact been very different.
