The first season of American Crime Story: The People Vs. O.J. Simpson will focus on the case from the perspective of the lawyers that were involved in the infamous case.
This season will also explore the messy hidden deals and moves on both sides of the court.
This season will also show how a combination of prosecution confidence, defense sneakiness, along with the rocky relationship between the LAPD and the city’s African-American community swayed the jury into having reasonable doubt.
Sounds interesting! Connie Britton was amazing in American Horror Story: Murder House. She is really great in Nashville.
Connie Britton is sure to shine in American Crime Story: The People Vs. O.J. Simpson.
