The mini takes a look at the O.J. Simpson trial told from the perspective of the lawyers that explores the chaotic behind-the-scenes dealings and maneuvering on both sides of the court, and how a combination of prosecution confidence, defense wiliness, and the LAPDs history with the citys African-American community gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt.
Britton joins Courtney B. Vance who plays Johnnie Cochran, John Travolta, who plays Simpsons co-counsel Robert Shapiro; David Schwimmer, who plays another Simpson attorney, his confidant Robert Kardashian, Cuba Gooding Jr, who portrays Simpson; and Sarah Paulson, who plays prosecutor Marcia Clark.
"American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson" is written by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski. Ryan is executive producing with fellow AHS co-creator Brad Falchuk, Nina Jacobson & Brad Simpson, Scott Alexander, Larry Karaszewski and Dante Di Loreto.
