Simpson case to launch FX’s ‘American Crime Story’
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The FX network is joining with “American Horror Story” producer Ryan Murphy on a true-crime anthology miniseries. First up: the O.J. Simpson murder case.
Each season of the miniseries, “American Crime Story,” will focus on a different crime that captured the public’s imagination, FX said Tuesday.
The 1994 killing of Simpson’s ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ronald Goldman, and Simpson’s arrest and trial led to a prolonged media frenzy. The NFL Hall of Famer and former TV and movie star was acquitted in the case but is in prison for a robbery.
FX did not announce the casting or air date for season one of “American Crime Story,” based on a book by lawyer and TV legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin. The fourth season of “American Horror Story” begins Wednesday.
