A+E Announces Special ‘Guilty: The Conviction of O.J. Simpson’ in October

New Footage and Exclusive Interviews Will be Included

On the heels of O.J. Simpson’s being granted parole comes word of a new two-hour special this October tentatively called “Guilt: The Conviction of O.J. Simpson.” The logline: For the first time, through previously unreleased audio tapes, never-before-seen files and exclusive interviews – including with Judge Jackie Glass and Las Vegas lead Detective Andy Caldwell (retired) – the people who brought Simpson to justice go inside the case and into the mind of O.J. Simpson. The documentary will take viewers back to the scene of the crime in room 1203 at the Palace Station Casino and re-examine the chilling details that led to O.J. Simpson’s verdict.

This special features interviews with Judge Jackie Glass, Detective Andy Caldwell and DA David Roger, as well as interviews with Detective Eddie LaNeve, Robbery Sgt. Rod Hunt and Bail Bondsman Miguel Periera. Additionally, world-renowned forensic psychologist, Dr. Robert Schug, analyzes O.J.’s behavior as each unsettling detail is revealed to build a compelling, fact-based profile of his psychological makeup. The documentary examines his state of mind and how it affected the way the Las Vegas Police Department approached his case.

“Guilty: The Conviction of O.J. Simpson” is produced for A&E Network by Outpost Entertainment in association with Martin Literary Management. Executive producers for Outpost Entertainment are Jodi Flynn, David George, Simon Thomas, Brent Jacoby, Michael Maloy and Sharlene Martin. Executive producers for A&E are Elaine Frontain Bryant and Brad Abramson.
