Investigation Discovery is looking to deliver a fresh perspective on the O.J. Simpson murder trial after greenlighting a six-part series, Is O.J. Innocent? The Missing Evidence.
Originally titled Hard Evidence: O.J. is Innocent, the Objective Media Group America production reopens the 1990′s real-life court drama, examining each part of the case, from the infamous Ford Bronco police “chase” to the controversial verdict declaring Simpson innocent of the 1994 double murder of his estranged wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman.
The series, narrated by actor Martin Sheen, follows the efforts of LAPD forensic psychologist Dr. Kris Mohandie, Rhode Island police sergeant Derrick Levasseur and Dallas-based private investigator William C. Dear as they look evidence, old and new, and how it may show that the trial’s original verdict was right.
The series is slated to air on Investigation Discovery from Jan. 15 – Jan. 17, with two episodes a night at 8 p.m. ET/PT and 9 p.m. ET/PT. It will air in another 130 countries on Investigation Discovery and other Discovery networks, starting with Denmark and Sweden on Jan. 22.
