Behind The Scenes of the O.J. Simpson Trial: What Really Happened?
In June 1994, former professional football star and actor O.J. Simpson was tried for the murders of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman. The case has been described as the most publicized criminal trial in American history. Now, 22 years later, FX Network has developed a much-anticipated 10 episode miniseries, premiering on Feb 2 called “The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” inspired by the book, The Run of His Life: The People V. O.J. Simpson, by CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin.
Toobin says while reporting for The New Yorker at the trial, he got to know many of the key people involved in the case, and he shares many of his insights and revelations as to what occurred, which he says are part of what contributes to this thrilling new series.
While the miniseries has gotten much positive publicity, members of the Goldman and the Brown families say they are upset their family member’s death was turned into an entertainment TV show. Ron Goldman’s father, Fred, says he wonders why he and his daughter, Kim, were never contacted by producers and if this series will be nothing but sensationalized fiction.
Then, hear from Nicole Brown’s sister, Tanya, who says she has not seen the Goldmans since 1996. Find out why Tanya has requested to meet with Dr. Phil alone. Tanya also tells Dr. Phil she deserved the respect to be contacted about the miniseries but was never contacted.
And, catch up with Kato Kaelin, and hear why he says he questions the authenticity of the series.
