LOS ANGELES, Dec. 2 (UPI) -- American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson released a first trailer starring Sarah Paulson on Wednesday.
The 40-year-old actress channels Marcia Clark, the real-life lead prosecutor on the O.J. Simpson murder case. The preview recounts the infamous trial and introduces Clark and the other personalities fighting for and against the accused killer.
Cuba Gooding, Jr., stars as Simpson himself, with John Travolta as the retired NFL star's defense lawyer Robert Shapiro, David Schwimmer as defense lawyer Robert Kardashian and Courtney B. Vance as defense lawyer Johnnie Cochran.
Selma Blair also appears as Kardashian's then-wife Kris Kardashian, with Connie Britton as her friend Faye Resnick, Nathan Lane as defense lawyer F. Lee Bailey, Jordana Brewster as Nicole Brown Simpson's sister Denise Brown and Billy Magnussen as witness Kato Kaelin.
Simpson was accused of murdering estranged wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Lyle Goldman in 1994, but was acquitted of the crime the next year. The series will examine the trial, and is scheduled to premiere Feb. 2, 2016 on FX.
Paulson has collaborated with American Crime Story executive producer Ryan Murphy on all five seasons of American Horror Story. The actress was confirmed to be dating 72-year-old Two and a Half Men star Holland Taylor this week.
