FX Networks and Ryan Murphy are continuing their prolific partnership with American Crime Story, a companion piece to the anthology series American Horror Story that premieres its fourth season, Freak Show, tomorrow night.
The subject matter of the premiere Crime season will reportedly focus on the infamous O.J. Simpson trial. Similar to American Horror Story, the first season of Crime will be a 10-episode anthology series, shifting focus each season to a new American crime story in subsequent seasons.
Based on the Jeffrey Tobin book The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson, American Crime Story season one will be written by an assortment that includes Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski who have penned several feature film biopics. In addition to writing/producing duties, Murphy will direct at least the pilot episode.
No word on the premiere date or casting yet, but allow me to suggest Melissa Leo as Marcia Cross.
