OJ: Made In America

Season 1  |  Episode 1  |  SBS  |  November 21, 2016

A defining cultural tale of modern America - a saga of race, celebrity, media, violence and the criminal justice system. This documentary revisits it all: the domestic abuse, the police investigation, the white Bronco chase and the trial of the century. Drawing upon more than 70 interviews from long-time friends and colleagues of Simpson to the recognisable protagonists of the murder investigation, to observers and commentators with distinct connections to the story, this provocative documentary is an engrossing and unforgettable look at a tantalising saga. In the turbulent 1960s, young OJ Simpson rises to fame as a football star first for the USC Trojans, then with the Buffalo Bills in the NFL and becomes one of the first black celebrities embraced by the white mainstream.
