FX’s The People vs. O.J. Simpson, which some critics called the best TV show of 2016, debuts today on Netflix’s streaming service.
The show, a docudrama about the infamous murders of Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman in Brentwood, California, and the subsequent celebrated trial of O.J. Simpson, stars Cuba Goodling Jr. as the ex-football player.
However, it’s the supporting cast that has captured the hearts of both viewers and critics, starting with Sarah Paulson who has won multiple awards for her star turn as prosecutor Marcia Clark.
Sterling Brown as the angst-ridden prosecutor Chris Darden, and Courtney B. Vance as Johnnie Cochran, the flamboyant lead attorney for Simpson, have also been singled out for their performances.
The show debuted on FX on February 2, 2016 so Netflix’s premiere comes exactly one year after. All 10 episodes of the mini-series are now available on Netflix.
And if you’re obsessed with all things O.J., Hulu is now carrying the three-part ESPN documentary, O.J.: Made in America, which has been nominated for an Oscar for Best Documentary Feature.
