AIRDATE + TRAILER: O.J Made in America - A 30 for 30 ESPN Special Event

ProgrammingMedia Release

ESPN Films this month will debut the group's most ambitious project to date, OJ: Made in America.

The five-part documentary is a mini-series event and the first episodic documentary by ESPN Films, starting a new chapter for the 30 for 30 brand.

Directed by Peabody and Emmy winner Ezra Edelman, OJ: Made in America examines the history of race over the past several decades through the lens of OJ Simpson's rise and fall.

The O.J. Simpson story is perhaps the defining cultural tale of 20th-century America, one that centres around two of America's greatest fixations -- race and celebrity.

OJ: 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 and his subsequent acquittal, and why he is now sitting in jail 20 years later for another crime.

This 10-hour epic had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 22, and will debut on Australian television in five parts.
