Following the undeniable success of FX’s American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson, ESPN has announced the launch of their latest seven-part documentary series titled O.J.: Made in America. In comparison to Ryan Murphy’s rather cinematic take on one of America’s most infamous murder trials, ESPN’s latest offering feels somewhat more authentic as it is compiled of more factual, real-life footage of the man himself, from his rise, to his fall. Described as “The most powerful and essential documentary about race, class, and gender in America in years,” by BuzzFeed, O.J.: Made in America is a captivating rendition that promises to offer a unique insight, not only into the trial itself, but into the many social complications surrounding it at the time. Enjoy the first official trailer above and stay tuned to ESPN or ABC, where episode one is scheduled to air on June 11, 2016.
