PASADENA, Calif., Jan. 17 (UPI) -- FX's 1990s-set American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson miniseries will only have a handful of scenes featuring the now-famous children of Simpson's late friend and attorney Robert Kardashian.
"In the 10 episodes, there are over 400 scenes that were written," Entertainment Weekly quoted executive producer Ryan Murphy as saying on the Television Critics Association's press tour in Pasadena on Saturday. "Of those 400 scenes, only four or five of them involve the Kardashian children. That gives you a grasp on how important we felt they were to the story."
Friends alum David Schwimmer plays Robert Kardashian in the series. Kardashian's claim to fame was helping to successfully defend Simpson against charges he brutally murdered his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman. The trial was nationally televised and dominated media headlines for much of 1994-95.
Kardashian and his wife Kris are the parents of Kim, Kourtney, Khloé, and Rob, who now have a reality television and social media empire. Robert Kardashian died of cancer in 2003 at the age of 59.
Set to premiere Feb. 2, the miniseries stars Cuba Gooding Jr. as Simpson, Sarah Paulson as Marcia Clark, John Travolta as Robert Shapiro, Courtney B. Vance as Johnnie Cochran, Connie Britton as Faye Resnick, and Nathan Lane as F. Lee Bailey.
