The OJ Simpson Trial was one of the most well-known televised events of the modern age.

It's up there with Tiannamen Square, the fall of the Berlin Wall and the final episode of Glenroe. Everyone knows where they were when the verdict was read and OJ breathed a sigh of relief.

American Horror Story's Ryan Murphy is bringing the story of the OJ Simpson trial to the small screen with American Crime Story.

The showrunner has lined up Cuba Gooding Jr. to play OJ Simpson, with AHS regular Sarah Paulson playing Marcia Clark, the lead prosecutor of the case.

OJ Simpsons's legal team of Johnny Cochrane, Robert Kardashian, F. Lee Bailey, Robert Shapiro, Alan Dershowitz have not been cast just yet, although it's expected the list will fill up shortly.

The new series will see a different true crime story covering each season, kicking off with the Simpson trial.

The first two episodes will also be written by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, who wrote the fantastic The People Vs. Larry Flynt.
