O.J. juror tries hand at comedy

So how’s this for weird?

HBO is in development with a project titled “The Deena Mullen Story,” a one-hour comedy special centered by Mullen. And who is Deena Mullen, you ask? You may know her better as “Juror No. 5” from the O.J. Simpson civil trial.

That’s right. An O.J. juror plans to perform and co-produce (with Shelly Morris) an hour of comedy set around Mullen’s experiences in the jury room, reviewing the evidence and interacting with the other jurors and attorneys in the case.

And you thought the Dancing Itos was odd.

Bradley Small, an attorney with Erickson & Halloran, negotiated the deal with HBO Workspace. Simpson is evidently not being used as a consultant.
