As if there aren’t already many popular television series centered around murder, there’s another on it’s way. It really seems we live in an era that is obsessed with murder especially when it has to do with a big time celeb is involved. Hit shows such as HBO’S “The Jinx” and Netflix’s “Making A Murderer” have had so much success and always leave people wanting more.
On FX’s “American Crime Story: The People Vs. O.J Simpson,” the miniseries display the possible guilt of O.J Simpson, however, a new television serious is geared to do the complete opposite. The interesting thing about this ESPN series is that it’s narrated and produced by Martin Sheen. The series “O.J: Made In America,” plans on presenting hardcore evidence that Simpson couldn’t have committed the tragic murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman in 1994. Even though O.J was acquitted of both murders in 1995, it just shows how many people are still invested in this case 21 years later.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the series will be based on the book “O.J Is Innocent and I can prove it” by a private investigator who spent decades finding “never before seen evidence” to support his theory of how Brown and Goldman really died.
The ESPN series has been planned to air in the beginning of 2017, however, the first hour will premiere on ABC in June, before the rest of the series airs on ESPN.
