FX Releases Teaser For ‘American Crime Story: The People vs. OJ Simpson’


Ryan Murphy is keeping himself busy; a day after premiering American Horror Story: Hotel, FX has released a short clip from his upcoming series, American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson.

Variety previously reported that Murphy’s forthcoming American Crime Story is meant to be a companion series to his American Horror Story anthology, and will focus on one centralized crime per standalone season (not to be confused with ABC’s American Crime series, though the two shows share nearly identical concepts). The first season will depict the murder of Nicole Brown and resulting trial of O.J. Simpson.

The 30-second teaser is the first visual look at Murphy’s new series (in contrast to the audio-only teaser released back in September), beginning with an establishing shot of Bundy Drive that ominously zooms into long take of a wailing dog, having just ostensibly witnessed the alleged crime.

Watch/listen to both teasers below:

American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson is scheduled to premiere in 2016.
