The one thing we've been clamoring for over the past decade is a miniseries about the O.J. Simpson murder trial!
Just kidding, we've never wanted that — the original trial was such a spectacle with such a monumental let down of an ending that we would never really want to subject ourselves to that again… no matter which side of the verdict the movie is going to push!
Fox also announced another miniseries that has nothing to do with anything, called Shogun, but that's a different thing altogether!
Here's what Fox said about them both, however:
"These are both epic stories — one fiction, one fact — that have captivated millions of people worldwide. They're riveting and emotional, with unique historic backdrops that lend themselves to the high-quality, dramatic event series we're looking to make."
Maybe if they add in aliens and an illuminati conspiracy to the trial it'll be fresh enough to watch…
… until then, we'll just cautiously await more info, like who they cast as O.J.!
Hey! O.J. has been in movies — maybe he could play himself! Wait, he's in jail. Nevermind. LOLz!
