It is the defining cultural tale of modern America - a saga of race, celebrity, media, violence, and the criminal justice system. And two decades after its unforgettable climax, it continues to fascinate, polarize, and develop new chapters.
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.

Well done series that captures realism and it's accurate with detail and facts.
Everyone remembers the mid 90's 1994 and 1995 and how they were glued with the culture and happenings of the O.J. Simpson murder case. And the criminal trial televised live on TV would fascinate and captivate a whole nation as did he do it, and the trial would spin on to race, police cover up and evidence tampering. I must say that this new FX series captures all of that near perfect. As the chemistry between the characters in is top notch form. As the actors playing the real life players look so real as the mannerisms are captured just perfect. And it shows how the defense team plots to make the trial about race and evidence tampering, and behind the scenes you see the power struggle with O.J. defense lawyers. And you see the head strong Marcia Clark make legal blunders and the real life news footage shown takes you back to the media circus of the trial of the century. Overall this series is near addictive watch it it's entertaining and a behind the scenes joy of the most talked about murder case of our generation.
