Marking 20 years since the verdict of the criminal trial, A&E and LMN will premiere two new event specials providing unprecedented access into the criminal and civil trials against O.J. Simpson.

           On October 3, 1995, the "trial of the century" culminated with O.J. Simpson's acquittal on the charges of the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. Two decades later, shocking recordings and interviews, some of which have never been heard until now, are revealed in the new A&E and LMN documentaries. Lawrence Schiller, filmmaker, author and close confidant to Robert Kardashian, shares his unique access into the case and trials against Simpson.

           The LMN special, “The Secret Tapes of the O.J. Case: The Untold Story,” reveals new insights into both the events surrounding the verdict of the criminal trial, and the various disturbing facets of O.J.’s personality, through statements by O.J. himself. The documentary exposes disturbing realities about O.J.’s thoughts, feelings and behavior before, during and after the trial. And an audio recording that O.J. secretly taped, prior to the infamous Bronco Chase, is heard. The special features rare interviews with key players on both sides of the case, including extensive, candid discussions with Robert Kardashian and Kris Kardashian Jenner.
           The A&E special, “O.J. Speaks: The Hidden Tapes,” provides unique access to the civil trial, which found O.J. responsible for the wrongful deaths of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. Viewers gain access to the plaintiffs’ deposition tapes from the civil trial – which were locked away and buried in a storage warehouse. Executive producers, Stephen Auerbach and Chuck Braverman, worked closely with Fred Goldman to obtain the revealing and insightful deposition tapes. Family members, including Fred, and members of the civil trial legal team, including Daniel Petrocelli, are interviewed for the special.
