ESPN’s awards-favorite documentary O.J.: Made in America is heading to Viceland where it will premiere Jan. 1.
Directed by Ezra Edelman, the doc has been shortlisted for the Best Documentary Feature at the upcoming Oscars. So far, the film has picked up hardware at the Independent Documentary Awards, Gotham Independent Film Awards, and Critics’ Choice Documentary Awards.
The ESPN Films production covers the 1995 O.J. Simpson criminal trial for the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her acquaintance Ron Goldman. It weaves the themes of race, domestic violence, celebrity culture, police brutality and the racial history of Los Angeles through the Simpson story across its nearly eight-hour run time.
The entire documentary airs on Jan 1. on Viceland, starting at 4 p.m. ET and concluding at midnight. Two intermissions are scheduled during the airing.
