It is perhaps the defining cultural tale of 20th-century America, one that centers around two of our country’s greatest fixations: race and celebrity. Directed by Peabody and Emmy winner Ezra Edelman, “O.J.: Made in America” will explore these themes in tracing a personal journey, from how Orenthal James Simpson first became a football star, to why the country fell in love with him off the field, to his being accused of murdering his ex-wife, his subsequent acquittal and why he is sitting in jail 20 years later for another crime. “We are incredibly proud of this epic work of documentary filmmaking. It’s one of the most unique projects ESPN Films has ever done,” said Marie Donoghue, EVP, Global Strategy and Original Content. “We are especially excited to team with our ABC colleagues to premiere the first installment on ABC.”The fourth part also airs on the 22nd anniversary of the Bronco chase. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that ESPN chose this week to air the documentary.
