Some things are so unbelievably offensive, they require no comment whatsoever. And with that — just in time for November sweeps, mind you — I give you a press release issued moments ago by the good folks at Fox. (Trust me, I only wish we were making this up.)
JUDITH REGAN’S EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH O.J. SIMPSON
“O.J. SIMPSON: IF I DID IT, HERE’S HOW IT HAPPENED”
TO AIR AS A TWO-PART SPECIAL ON FOX
Special to Air Over Two Nights:
Monday, November 27, and Wednesday, November 29
Over 10 years after he was tried for two murders in the “Trial of the Century” that captured the attention of the world, O.J. Simpson, in his own words, tells for the first time how he would have committed the murders if he were the one responsible for the crimes. Noted publisher Judith Regan will talk with Simpson in a wide-ranging, no-holds-barred interview that will be the basis of a two-part special, O.J. SIMPSON: IF I DID IT, HERE’S HOW IT HAPPENED (working title), airing Monday, Nov. 27 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and Wednesday, Nov. 29 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
The Simpson criminal and civil trials captivated people around theworld for a decade, and now no topics are off-limits — Simpson hasagreed to an unrestricted interview with Regan. In the two-part event,Simpson describes how he would have carried out the murders he hasvehemently denied committing for over a decade.
“This is an interview that no one thought would ever happen. It’sthe definitive last chapter in the Trial of the Century,” said MikeDarnell, Executive Vice President of Alternative Programming.
Although acquitted of murdering Nicole Brown Simpson and RonGoldman, Simpson was later sued in civil court, found responsible forboth murders and ordered to pay $33.5 million in restitution to thefamilies of the victims. A decade later, Simpson has written a bookthat hypothetically describes how the murders would have beencommitted. If I Did It will go on sale Thursday, Nov. 30, under theREGAN imprint.
