O.J. Simpson May Get His Own Reality Show After Being Released From Prison

The 69-year-old former football player might have his own reality show after he gets out from prison later this year.

AceShowbiz - %cO.J. Simpson% could be released from prison as early as October and he might get his own reality show by then. Rumor has it, some producers are getting ready to scramble to sign the 69-year-old former football player.

Sources tell TMZ that producers want to make a documentary or interview show. According to the sources, someone will certainly recreate a 2006 TV special, "If I Did It", which showed O.J. confessing to the double murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman in a book he co-wrote.

In recent years, O.J. has made for some great TV features including ESPN's "O.J.: Made in America", which took home the Best Documentary Feature at the Oscars, and FX's "The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story", that won countless awards at both the Golden Globes and the Emmys.

However, there is some problem with the prospect. Rumor has it, broadcast and cable network would never air a show featuring O.J. as public wouldn't tolerate it and no one would advertise on it. Producers say there would be a home on Pay-Per-View because, as one person put it, "people could pay without being judged."

O.J. was sentenced to 33 years behind bars, with eligibility for parole in nine years. He's still on the hook for a $33 million wrongful death judgment.
