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 »

Goofs

In re-enacted freeway scenes, numbered exit signs can be seen. California didn't begin to number freeway exits until 2002, after the events depicted. See more »

Terrific True Crime - Courtroom Drama
19 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

Sarah Paulsen (Clark), Sterling Brown (Darden) and Courtney Vance (Cochran) are absolute stand-outs in this excellent TV series. Great writing and terrific acting. The one criticism I have is Cuba Gooding, Jr, although a wonderful actor, doesn't have the physicality required to convincingly portray O.J. Simpson. Other than that poor judgment in casting, excellent direction and production make this a series worth watching. Even if you believe you know everything about the case, you'll gain a deeper sense of the sorrow the families (and still are) lived through. And a greater respect for the district attorneys, who by no fault of their own, found themselves under the microscope while working inside a circus ring. Like Nicole and Ron - the LA District Attorney never had a chance.
