New footage from Ryan Murphy’s “American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson” was released Thursday by FX. Previously, the cabler had released a trailer, teasing audio.
The short glimpse of the hotly anticipated 2016 series gives a first look at the only witness of the fatal crime: Nicole Brown Simpson’s dog.
During the famed trial, which the 10-episode FX series will chronicle, the dog was noted to lead the victim’s neighbor to Simpson’s body. Bloody paw prints from the dog were also found on the scene.
“American Crime Story” stars Cuba Gooding Jr. as Simpson; John Travolta as Robert Shapiro; Sarah Paulson as Marcia Clark; David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian; Courtney B. Vance as Johnnie Cochran; Billy Magnussen as Kato Kaelin; Selma Blair as Kris Jenner; and Connie Britton as Faye Resnick.
The project, hailing from Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions, is exec produced by 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 directed the first episode.
The new trailer comes just one day after Murphy’s “American Horror Story: Hotel” with Lady Gaga premiered on FX.
