Finally a look at the full trailer for The People V. O.J. Simpson

12.02.2015

To this point, all we've gotten from FX to lead into their new series AMERICAN CRIME STORY: THE PEOPLE V. O.J. SIMPSON has been various teases. However, today the cable network has chosen to unveil a 60-second trailer for the program, giving us a glimpse at the cast in each of their roles, offering up more than the courtroom action and moving into how this case affected the outside lives of the various personalities.

I'll be interested to see how ACS plays, given how closely so many followed the O.J. case as it was prosecuted. I'd hope it doesn't feel like like a caricature and offers up some deeper insight on how the case was approached from both sides... but given this is walking a strange line between factual and entertainment, all bets are off until we see it hit the air.

American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, the first installment of the new limited series from prolific producer Ryan Murphy, will debut on FX in early 2016 with an all-star cast portraying the key figures in the infamous O.J. Simpson murder trial. The cast includes Cuba Gooding Jr. as O.J. Simpson, John Travolta as defense attorney Robert Shapiro, David Schwimmer as defense attorney Robert Kardashian, Sarah Paulson as prosecutor Marcia Clark, Courtney B. Vance as defense attorney Johnnie Cochran, and Bruce Greenwood as Los Angeles County District Attorney Gil Garcetti.

Based on the book The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson by Jeffrey Toobin, the limited series is a look at the O.J. Simpson trial told from the perspective of the lawyers. 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.

AMERICAN CRIME STORY: THE PEOPLE V. O.J. SIMPSON is called to order on FX starting February 2.
