AceShowbiz - Ahead of the upcoming premiere of "American Crime Story", a new teaser for the new FX anthology series has been made available online for viewing pleasure. Highlighting the star-studded cast, it shares a shocking scene.
In the 30-second video, %cCuba Gooding Jr.%'s %cO.J. Simpson% is mulling suicide in %cKim Kardashian%'s bedroom. %cDavid Schwimmer%'s Robert Kardashian prevents this though, saying, "Do not kill yourself in Kimmy's bedroom. Give me the gun!"
Also in the sneak peek, %cSarah Paulson%'s Marcia Clark is having a breakdown as she's overwhelmed by the unexpected attention she gets, and %cJohn Travolta%'s Robert Shapiro gushes about "the most high-profile criminal case in the world."
Created by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, and is executive produced by Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy, the new anthology series will focus on the 1995 sensational murder trial that involved O.J. Simpson in its first season. It will explore the chaotic behind-the-scenes dealings and maneuvering on both sides of the court, and how a combination of prosecution overconfidence, defense shrewdness, and the LAPD's history with the city's African-American community gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt.
Also lined up in the cast are %cCourtney B. Vance% as Johnnie Cochran, %cBilly Magnussen% as Kato Kaelin, %cSelma Blair% as %cKris Jenner%, %cConnie Britton% as Faye Resnick who befriended Simpson's murdered ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson, and %cJordana Brewster% as the victim's sister Denise Brown.
"American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson" premieres Tuesday, February 2 at 10 P.M. on FX.
