A lawyer for O.J. Simpson says the imprisoned former football star isn't happy with ads and interviews about a cable TV series focusing on his 1995 murder acquittal in Los Angeles.

Attorney Malcolm LaVergne in Las Vegas told The Associated Press that Simpson isn't upset about how he's shown.

But he admired Johnnie Cochran and believes his defense lawyer at the trial is depicted unfairly.

Simpson won't be able to see the show, "The People v. O.J. Simpson" — at least not immediately.

State corrections spokeswoman Brooke Keast says Nevada prisons don't carry the FX network, which will debut the 10-part show on Tuesday.

The 68-year-old Simpson is being held at Lovelock Correctional Center on a 2008 kidnapping and armed robbery conviction. He'll be eligible for parole in 2017.
