FX has released three new teasers for its upcoming scripted series, American Crime Story: The People V O.J. Simpson, a series that focuses on the courtroom drama that unfolded during the O.J. Simpson murder trial of the 1990s. You can watch the teasers in the embedded players below.
Directed by Ryan Murphy and based on the book “The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson” by Jeffrey Toobin, American Crime Story: The People V O.J. Simpson tells the O.J. Simpson murder trial from the perspective of the lawyers, exploring the behind-the-scenes dealings and maneuverings on both sides of the aisle and in the process giving the audience new information that they probably didn’t know.
Speaking a couple of months ago on the project, director, Ryan Murphy said, “Our goal is to show you the behind-the-scenes mechanizations of crimes, stuff that you didn’t know… When I read the scripts, I didn’t know half the stuff [that occurred]. I’m like, ‘That happened? That happened?’ I think people will find them so illuminating. I did.”
The 10-episode series stars Cuba Gooding Jr. as O.J. Simpson, Sarah Paulson as Marcia Clark, Courtney B. Vance as the late Johnny Cochran, David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian and John Travolta as Robert Shapiro.
Others include Malcolm-Jamal Warner as A.C. Cowlings, Selma Blair as Kris Kardashian and Connie Britton as Faye Resnick.
The series will premiere on FX in February 2016.
