American Crime Story is an American anthology true crime television series developed by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, who are also executive producers, alongside Brad Falchuk, Nina Jacobson, Ryan Murphy, and Brad Simpson. The series is the second installment in the American Story media franchise, following American Horror Story. [3] Each season is presented as a self-contained miniseries and is independent of the events in other seasons. Alexander and Karaszewski did not return after the first season, but retain executive-producer credits. [4] In the United States, the series is broadcast on FX.

Contents

The first season, subtitled The People v. O. J. Simpson , chronicled the murder trial of O. J. Simpson, and was based on the book The Run of His Life: The People v. O. J. Simpson by Jeffrey Toobin.

Seasons

The People v. O. J. Simpson (2016)

Based on Jeffrey Toobin's The Run of His Life: The People v. O. J. Simpson, the season explores the O. J. Simpson (Cuba Gooding Jr.) murder case as well as the combination of prosecution confidence, defense wiliness, and the Los Angeles Police Department's history with the city's African-American community that gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt. [11] [12]

The season also stars Sterling K. Brown as Christopher Darden, Kenneth Choi as Lance Ito, Christian Clemenson as Bill Hodgman, Bruce Greenwood as Gil Garcetti, Nathan Lane as F. Lee Bailey, Sarah Paulson as Marcia Clark, David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian, John Travolta as Robert Shapiro, and Courtney B. Vance as Johnnie Cochran.

The season also stars Ricky Martin as Antonio D'Amico and Penélope Cruz as Donatella Versace.

Impeachment (2021)

The Clinton–Lewinsky scandal will serve as the basis for the third season of the series, Impeachment, [8] following the ensuing events during Clinton's presidency, based on Jeffrey Toobin's book A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President. [15] [16]

The season will star Sarah Paulson as Linda Tripp, Beanie Feldstein as Monica Lewinsky, Clive Owen as Bill Clinton, [17] Margo Martindale as Lucianne Goldberg, [18] Edie Falco as Hillary Clinton, [19] and Annaleigh Ashford as Paula Jones.

Production

Development

The People v. O. J. Simpson

On October 7, 2014, it was announced that FX had ordered a ten-episode season of American Crime Story, developed by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, and executive produced by Alexander and Karaszewski, as well as Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, who co-created such series as Nip/Tuck , Glee , American Horror Story , Scream Queens , and Pose . Murphy also directed the pilot episode. Other executive producers are Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson. [51] Co-executive producers are Anthony Hemingway and D. V. DeVincentis. All ten episodes were expected to be written by Alexander and Karaszewski. [11] [52] The series was previously in development at Fox but later moved to the company's sibling cable network FX. [53]

Proposed Katrina seasons

A season titled Katrina was announced to be the series' second season, initially said to be using Douglas Brinkley's book The Great Deluge: Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans, and the Mississippi Gulf Coast as the primary source material, [54] [55] with Annette Bening cast as Kathleen Blanco, Matthew Broderick as Michael D. Brown, and Dennis Quaid as George W. Bush. [56] However, it was later announced that the source material had changed to Sheri Fink's book Five Days at Memorial: Life and Death in a Storm-Ravaged Hospital , and the season would take an unflinching look at the decisions doctors made at Memorial Medical Center. In August 2017, it was announced that Sarah Paulson would star as Dr. Anna Pou, who was on duty at the hospital when Katrina struck. [57] [58] Cuba Gooding Jr. [58] and Courtney B. Vance [58] were set to return after their participation in the first season, but after the source material was changed, only Paulson was set to star, with the other actors such as Bening, Broderick, and Quaid leaving the project. However, it was said the producers would try to find new characters for at least some of those actors already cast. [57]

The so-called Katrina season was originally planned to be the second season of the series, with The Assassination of Gianni Versace following as the third. However, in June 2017, it was announced that Katrina would not begin production until early 2018 and that Versace would air in early 2018, replacing Katrina as the show's second installment. [59] In early February 2019, John Landgraf acknowledged that the Katrina storyline was cancelled and won't be the subject of any season of the series. [9]

The Assassination of Gianni Versace

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story was picked up on October 18, 2016, and was announced as the third season of the series, following the season about Katrina. [13] The announcement also revealed that English author Tom Rob Smith would be the writer of multiple episodes of the season, including the first two, [13] while executive producer Ryan Murphy would be directing the season premiere. [35] Following the airing of the first season's finale in April 2016, it was revealed that series creators Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski would not be returning for the second season. [60] However, in June 2017, it was announced that Katrina would not begin production until early 2018 and that Versace would air in early 2018, replacing Katrina as the show's second installment. [59]

Impeachment

In January 2017, it was announced that a fourth season was in development, to air after Katrina. It was to cover the Clinton–Lewinsky scandal and the ensuing events during Clinton's presidency, based on Jeffrey Toobin's book A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President. [15] [16] However, in April 2018, Murphy revealed that the season was scrapped and no longer in development. [61]

On August 6, 2019, it was announced that the Clinton–Lewinsky scandal season was back in development as the third season of the series and that it would be titled Impeachment. The season began production in October 2020, despite the original release date slated as September 27, 2020. [62] Lewinsky herself signed on as a co-producer. [8] Later that month, it was announced that Hillary Clinton would appear as a character in the series, but that she would not have a significant role. [63]

Studio 54

On August 13, 2021, shortly before the premiere of Impeachment, it was announced that a potential fourth season, tentatively entitled Studio 54, was in development. This season would focus on the rise and fall of Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager and their Studio 54 nightclub during the 1970s leading up to Rubell and Schrager's eventual tax fraud conviction. [64] [10] [65]

For season 1, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Sarah Paulson were the first to be cast as Simpson and Marcia Clark, respectively. [66] Subsequently, David Schwimmer was cast as Robert Kardashian.

In February 2017, Annette Bening joined the cast of the ultimately unproduced Katrina as Kathleen Blanco, [76] while Matthew Broderick was cast as Michael D. Brown. [77] That same month, Édgar Ramírez and Darren Criss joined the cast of The Assassination of Gianni Versace as Gianni Versace and Andrew Cunanan, respectively.

[87] In March 2021, it was announced that Edie Falco would play Hillary Clinton. [19] In June 2021, Colin Hanks joined the cast. In August 2021, it was announced that Gilpin had exited the season due to scheduling conflicts and would be replaced by Cobie Smulders. [88]

In October 2015, FX released its first promotional trailer for The People v. O. J. Simpson, showing an Akita dog whining, walking from its residence onto a sidewalk to bark, then walking back to its residence, leaving behind bloody paw prints. [91] Later that month another teaser was released, wherein the first actual footage of Travolta as Shapiro was shown. In the teaser, Shapiro is about to ask Simpson (whose face is unseen) if he is responsible for the murder of Simpson's ex-wife. In the next short teaser that was released, Simpson (again unseen) is taking a lie detector test.

In November, two new teasers were released. The first shows Simpson writing his attempted suicide letter, while a voice-over by Gooding, Jr. narrates. The second shows the police chasing Simpson's white Ford Bronco, while dozens of fans cheer for him. [92]

The first full trailer was released in December, along with a poster for the season. The trailer included Simpson sitting in the childhood bedroom of Kim Kardashian and contemplating suicide while Robert Kardashian tries to stop him. [93]

In September 2017, FX released the first promotional teaser for The Assassination of Gianni Versace, showing doves sitting outside Versace's former mansion and flying away when two gunshots ring out.
