Simpson case to launch FX's 'American Crime Story'

BY foxsports • October 7, 2014

LOS ANGELES (AP) The FX network is joining with ''American Horror Story'' producer Ryan Murphy on a true-crime anthology miniseries. First up: the O.J. Simpson murder case.

Each season of the miniseries, ''American Crime Story,'' will focus on a different crime that captured the public's imagination, FX said Tuesday.

The 1994 killing of Simpson's ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ronald Goldman, and Simpson's arrest and trial led to a prolonged media frenzy. The NFL Hall of Famer and former TV and movie star was acquitted in the case but is in prison for a robbery.

FX did not announce the casting or air date for season one of ''American Crime Story,'' based on a book by lawyer and TV legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin. The fourth season of ''American Horror Story'' begins Wednesday.
