Heavily decorated miniseries “The People v. O.J.

Vance as Johnnie Cochran, David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian, and in career-catapulting roles, St. Louis native Sterling K. Brown as Christopher Darden and Sarah Paulson as Marcia Clark.

Soledad O’Brien on Revisiting OJ Simpson for ‘Mysteries & Scandals …

When it comes to infamous true crime cases, OJ Simpson’s arrest and subsequent acquittal in the 1994 murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman tops the list.

The former professional athlete escaped conviction in 1996, was later sued by the victims’ families, and ended up arrested for a 2007 armed robbery and kidnapping. His alleged involvement in the first crime was the subject of quite a few TV programs in 2016 — including the Academy Award-winning documentary “OJ: Made in America” and the Emmy Award-winning scripted limited series “The People v. OJ Simpson.” Last year, he was granted parole and released after serving nine years for that armed robbery and kidnapping. Now, Oxygen Media’s new true crime docu-series “Mysteries Scandals” debuts with a deep dive into the crime that put the notorious man behind bars.

OJ Simpson Could Be Released From Prison by Sunday

After nine years, the incarceration of O.J. Simpson will come to an end in the next several days, a Nevada Department of Corrections spokeswoman confirms to PEOPLE.

The former former NFL star and double-murder suspect, 70, will be released either Sunday or Monday, Department of Corrections spokeswoman Brooke Keast tells PEOPLE.

Simpson’s prison term expires when the clock strikes midnight on Sunday — when September turns into October. However, because the prison system maintains minimal staffing on weekends, Simpson may not make it out on Oct. 1. It is possible he’ll be set free on Monday, Oct. 2.

“We could hold him here for weeks if we had to,” Keast says. “We don’t want to, but it’s a public safety thing.”

Keast says the Department of Corrections is expecting intense media coverage and is doing everything it can to avert a paparazzi feeding frenzy.

“If we have too many media out

FX is still "confident" that People v. OJ Simpson’s Hurricane Katrina spin-off will eventually air

Despite what you’ve been hearing, there are still plans for American Crime Story: Katrina to air on FX at some point in the future.

The dramatisation of Hurricane Katrina was the first spin-off of the Emmy-winning People v. O.J. Simpson announced and even attached Matthew Broderick, Annette Bening and Dennis Quaid to star, but was later pushed back behind a season based around the murder of designer Gianni Versace.

The latest word in July from director Anthony Hemingway was that the project had “stalled” indefinitely, but FX president John Landgraf had a more hopeful outlook at the TCA press tour on Wednesday.

A pop-up ‘OJ Simpson Museum’ is coming to LA

Now that he’s been granted parole, O.J. Simpson could be released from prison as soon as Oct. 1. But that will still be too late for him to get a look at “The O.J. Simpson Museum,” a five-day pop-up exhibition coming to the art space Coagula Curatorial in L.A.’s Chinatown Aug. 18 to 22.

Many of course believe that Simpson does not deserve a museum, even if it’s only a temporary gallery show. Coagula Curatorial owner Mat Gleason, however, says the exhibition is not intended to glorify Simpson. It’s largely a statement, he says, about the morbid fan culture around his murder trial.

“There are people to this day that say O.J. is innocent — not me — but it’s an obsession among Americans,” Gleason says. “All this stuff, this is the art of the people, the visual language of the common man.”

To display that visual language, more than 300 Simpson
