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

During an appearance on The View (1997), real-life prosecutor Marcia Clark disclosed that, though she found the experience of watching season one in general quite painful on reflection, she was truly honored to see how well Sarah Paulson portrayed her. She was also very complimentary of producer Ryan Murphy for underscoring the extent of the sexism that she had experienced throughout the trial. See more »
