O.J. Simpson's notorious murder trial -- and the infamous slow-speed Bronco chase that preceded it -- is scheduled to be transformed into a television movie.
The American footballer-turned-actor's action-packed arrest and subsequent trial for the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman captured the attention of the world, and now executives at Fox have announced plans to transform the case into a small screen series.
The drama will be based on Jeffrey Toobin's 1997 book The Run of His Life: The People vs O.J. Simpson, and will focus on the infamous low-speed car chase Simpson led police on throughout Los Angeles in June 1994, as well as the courtroom drama itself, which ended in 1995 with his acquittal.
Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, the writing team behind another famed courtroom classic, The People vs. Larry Flynt, will script the project.
Simpson is currently serving a prison sentence of up to 33 years for kidnapping and armed robbery stemming from a separate case.
