The one-minute glimpse into the hotly anticipated Ryan Murphy series, which chronicles the events surrounding the O.J. Simpson trial, showcases the all-star cast including John Travolta, Sarah Paulson and Cuba Gooding Jr., who plays the famed, titular character.
The video begins with Paulson’s Marcia Clark getting a phone call, learning about the Nicole Brown Simpson murder in Brentwood. The “AHS” vet breaks down in character, as the trailer flashes through dramatic scenes, including Selma Blair’s Kris Jenner fighting with David Schwimmer’s Robert Kardashian, who defended O.J. during the 1995 trial.
“The trial wasn’t the whole story,” the trailer says. “This is.”
“American Crime Story” hails from Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions and exec producers Murphy, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Brad Falchuk, Dante Di Loreto and scribes Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, who are adapting Jeffrey Toobin’s book “The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson” for television. Murphy also directed the first episode.
“American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson” premieres Tuesday, Feb. 2 at 10:00 p.m.
