American Crime Story

Gareth Williams (Elite) posted this on Wednesday, 10th December 2014, 02:07



Like American Horror Story, but with crime.

Quote:
American Crime Story is an upcoming American true crime anthology television series created by Ryan Murphy, co-creator of American Horror Story, to which American Crime Story will serve as a companion series. It will be broadcast on the cable network FX, premiering in 2015. The first season, subtitled The People vs. O. J. Simpson, will focus on the murder trial of O. J. Simpson. Based on the Book The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson by Jeffrey Toobin.

Starring Cuba Gooding Jr as OJ Simpson and Sarah Paulson as Marcia Clark.

The first season will be 10 episodes. Filming will begin early in 2015 and will likely air in the Spring.

FX have HBO levels of "can't do any wrong"-ness at the moment so this could be interesting!

Yeah really good first start! In style and pace nothing like American Horror Story at all if anybody (like me) was worried about that. Amazing cast they've got for this season, and quite proud of myself for recognising one of the Huxtables from The Cosby Show all grown up!

Though Cochran is going to be hard to take seriously after Sienfeld parodied him so well.

I guess the closest other show this feels like is in tone is Prime Suspect (Helen Mirren). This might just keep me going till Game of Thrones.

For people enjoying this, if you for some reason don't know how it ends and want to keep that a mystery (what were you living under a rock back when it all happened???)...

SPOILER:
They've just found the possible murder weapon after all these years:

Great publicity for the show, though.

An interview with Marcia Clark, the chief prosecutor, worth a read:
