O.J. reality TV show in the works

LINKY

If people actually watch this I'll fucking puke my guts out. I will never understand how this murderer still gets attention. I think he could chop a persons head off on this show and people would still not believe that he did it. I'll just shut the fuck up now.

O.J. reality TV show in the works

MIAMI, Florida (CNN) -- O.J. Simpson -- acquitted in 1995 in the killings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman -- is preparing for his debut as the star of his own "Osbournes"-esque reality show.

Fort Worth, Texas-based Urban America Television Network said it will distribute a 13-week series about the former football great to its 75 independent broadcast TV station affiliates starting in June, according to a story in The Hollywood Reporter.

The series will chronicle Simpson's daily life in Miami using footage collected over several months of filming in 2001 and 2002.

Simpson maintains he did not commit the crimes and has said he thinks the case eventually will be solved.

Following the criminal trial, Simpson was sued by both families of the victims in civil court. The families were awarded $33.5 million in damages in 1997.

Since the trials, Simpson and his children have been living near Miami on a $4 million pension earned with money from his careers in sports, acting and television pitchman. Such pensions are exempt from civil court judgments.

In December 2001, federal agents searched Simpson's house and nine other area homes as part of an investigation into a drug, theft and money-laundering ring.

Simpson was at home during the search and no large amounts of money or drugs were found, his attorney said at the time. Simpson was not involved in the ring, the attorney said.

In October 2001, Simpson was acquitted of charges stemming from an alleged road-rage argument. He was accused of grabbing eyeglasses from a driver's face and scratching him.

Maybe the producers are hoping he will kill someone on t.v rather than an upscale neighbourhood

Are they going to reenact how he brutally slaughtered two human beings as well?

Wow, um...geez.

I thought the MTV musical version of Wuthering Heights was a bad idea.

This is just...appalling.

I thought that was going to be the point of the show. I can already see the ad for the show: "Join OJ as he goes cross-country on his wacky adventures hunting down the real killers."

nice to see that common sense prevails and that this sensationalistic press coverage was just that and became nothing more.

When I read that subject... I was thinking.

acquitted but financially liable...not much of a consolation, of course

the best way to package this show is to involve norm macdonald heavily
those jokes are still funny in 10-ish year old reruns

EDIT: (not mentioned in link) he's also been accused of pirating DirecTV
