John Travolta, David Schwimmer, Nathan Lane, Courtney B. Vance and more spotted on the American Crime Story set
A number of new American Crime Story set photos have hit today, offering a behind the scenes look at the upcoming FX limited series. Check them out in the gallery viewer below!
American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson is based on the book “The Run of His Life: The People V. O.J. Simpson” by Jeffrey Toobin. The limited series offers a look at the O.J. Simpson trial told from the perspective of the lawyers. 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.
American Crime Story stars Cuba Gooding Jr. as O.J. Simpson, John Travolta as defense attorney Robert Shapiro, David Schwimmer as defense attorney Robert Kardashian, Sarah Paulson as prosecutor Marcia Clark, Billy Magnussen as Kato Kaelin and Courtney B. Vance as Johnnie Cochran.
The new series hails from Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning producer and Emmy Award-winning Director Ryan Murphy (“American Horror Story,” The Normal Heart) will direct the first episode and serve as Executive Producer, along with Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Scott Alexander, Larry Karaszewski and Brad Falchuk.
American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson is written by Golden Globe-winning producers Alexander and Karaszewski (Big Eyes, The People v. Larry Flynt). American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions.
