While TV creator and showrunner Ryan Murphy’s Scream Queens is set to make its debut later this year, he is already hard at work on a new series.
Titled American Crime Story, the series will follow the same anthology structure that’s a defining aspect of Murphy’s fellow FX series American Horror Story. Unlike the latter, however, American Crime Story will spend each season looking at a true crime event, with the first season focusing on the trial of former football player and actor OJ Simpson. Cuba Gooding Jr. will be taking on the role of Simpson, with a supporting cast that sees Sarah Paulson and Connie Britton reunite with Murphy, while John Travolta, Courtney B. Vance, David Schwimmer, Bruce Greenwood, and Selma Blair round out the cast.
FX has now announced that the series will be making its premiere on the channel in February. Murphy is onboard as director and executive producer, though he did not create this show. This marks Murphy’s third collaboration with FX, following the aforementioned American Horror Story and Nip/Tuck. The first teaser for the new series can be seen below.
