Simpson’s parole hearing revisits old obsession

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS

    O.J. Simpson lawyer Yale Galanter talks to the media outside Clark County Justice courtroom after Simpson’s arraignment in Las Vegas in 2007. Simpson faces a parole board hearing this week in Nevada.

NEW YORK >> Television networks will interrupt this presidency on July 20 to revisit an old obsession.

ABC, NBC, CNN, Fox News Channel, MSNBC, HLN and ESPN will show O.J. Simpson’s parole hearing at a Nevada prison, as he seeks freedom after spending more than eight years locked up for armed robbery and assault. CBS said it will livestream the hearing on its CBSN digital news affiliate.

Simpson’s trial in California for the 1994 murders of his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman, was a television obsession more than two decades ago. The former football star was acquitted, but has been imprisoned for trying to steal sports collectibles.

Interest in Simpson was revived last year with ESPN’s documentary “O.J.: Made in America,” and the FX miniseries, “The People vs. O.J. Simpson.”

Former Los Angeles police detective Mark Fuhrman, who testified in Simpson’s original trial, will provide analysis for Fox News Channel.
