Ryan Murphy’s American Crime Story anthology series kicks off with The People v OJ Simpson, and because of the nature of the subject matter, it’s already hotly anticipated. There has been speculation as to where this 10-part series would land in the UK, and now we have the answer – BBC2. And, what’s more, it’s hoped that the show will be broadcast in the UK soon after its 2nd February transmission in the US.
The stellar cast includes Cuba Gooding Jr as O.J. Simpson, John Travolta as defence attorney Robert Shapiro, David Schwimmer as defence attorney Robert Kardashian, Sarah Paulson as prosecutor Marcia Clark, Courtney B Vance as defence attorney Johnnie Cochran, and Bruce Greenwood as Los Angeles County District Attorney Gil Garcetti.
