Each episode focuses on the infamous O.J. Simpson case that began, for the public, with a police chase down Los Angeles Highway 405, lasting two hours. People were riveted to their television sets on the evening of June 17, 1994, as former Buffalo Bills, 49ers teammate and close friend, Al Cowlings drove Simpson in Simpson’s white Ford Bronco. The well-publicized trial lasted nearly a year, from the fall of 1994 to the fall of 1995. The point of American Crime Story is to get inside the heads of the lawyers who sat through this lengthy trial, sharing personal insight previously unknown to the public.
