Thursday, O.J. Simpson was granted parole after serving 9 years behind bars for a Nevada armed robbery.
Earlier that morning, A&E announced a new documentary, Guilty: The Conviction of O.J. Simpson (working title).
It will be a two-hour special that A&E says “analyzes with new details and revelations the case that led to his conviction for armed robbery. The documentary will take viewers back to the scene of the crime in room 1203 at the Palace Station Casino and re-examine the chilling details that led to O.J. Simpson’s verdict.”
The network says it will include unreleased audio tapes, never-before-seen files and exclusive interviews.
“A&E continues to create timely thought-provoking programming that truly resonates with our true-crime enthusiast audience,” said Bryant. “Over the past two decades, the fascination with O.J. Simpson only continues to grow and we are dedicated to bringing a fresh new look into his most recent case through exclusive interviews and footage,” said Elaine Frontain Bryant, Executive Vice President and Head of Programming, A&E Network.
Are you ready for more O.J.-related programming on television? Last year, The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, a limited series on FX chronicling his murder trial, garnered commercial and critical acclaim.
