Many people were captivated by the O.J. Simpson trial during the Nineties. But most people did not see what really happened during the “trial of the century.”
That’s where “American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson” comes in. This enthralling TV series gave the audience a one-of-a kind behind-the-scenes experience detailing the gruesome events that shook many Americans.
In honor of the FX show – and the shocking trial – Entity looks at five things you need to know about “American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.”
Here are five things you need to know about the show.
“American Crime Story” is the spinoff series of FX mainstay “American Horror Story.” Ryan Murphy chose to expand the “AHS” franchise to focus on the most massive true crime events that have ever taken place in American history.
The program kicked things off with the so-called “trial of the century” – “The People v. O.J. Simpson.” By far this was one of the most intriguing shows to watch.
The audience learned so much about what happened during the case and were allowed to make their own judgement of the show.
It is so great to see familiar faces on a television series like this and it goes to show that the actors really believe in the script and want to be a part of it.
Actors include Cuba Gooding Jr., John Travolta, Courtney B. Vance, Sarah Paulson, David Schwimmer and Nathan Lane.
We are excited to see who else joins the cast in the next season.
It is clear that no show is as successful if the script doesn’t make sense for the actors.
The “American Crime Story” includes writers and produces such as Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, the Golden Globe-winning pair, Joe Robert Cole, who Marvel just hired to write its “Black Panther” film, and Maya Forbes.
Given the recent social issues occurring in our society around race and police brutality, many of the producers and actors were hesitant about the film.
What made this show great was that it was not “slanted to look at Simpson’s guilt or innocence. It tells the facts as they were presented, but does so with the underlying question of how race played a role,” producer Ryan Murphy said, in an interview with Screenrant.
It is safe to say that the show’s first season was a hit, and left the people wondering and speculating on the actual crime that took place in American history.
We are very excited to see what’s to expect in the next season, “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story,” starring Edgar Ramirez as Gianni Versace, and former “Glee” cast member Darren Criss playing Andrew Cunanan.
