'The People vs. O.J. Simpson' is one of the most acclaimed new series of 2016. It's a miniseries, actually, airing on the FX Network. There are 10 episodes in total. All part of FX Network's 'American Crime Story' franchise. The series is based on the book 'The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson' by Jeffrey Toobin. It was originally published back in 1996. Toobin is currently CNN's legal analyst as well as a writer at the New Yorker. When I watched the first episode of this series all I wanted to do was to talk to him about it and find out more from him about what actually happened back in the 90's, what it's been like to see his book turned into this series and how he feels about the show, keeping in mind, that he's a consultant on it. On this first episode of our own miniseries about the miniseries we delve into the pilot episode that introduces to the people and characters that we know well from this story.
