Simpson, which, according to FX, “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.” It stars Cuba Gooding Jr. as Simpson, Sarah Paulson as prosecutor Marcia Clark, John Travolta as Robert Shapiro, Courtney B. Vance as Johnny Cochran, David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian and Connie Britton as Faye Resnick.
