Fresh off its win at Sunday’s Oscars, ESPN has scheduled special screenings — including one with limited interruptions — of the documentary “O.J.: Made in America.” The ESPN Films original won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.

The almost 8-hour movie will first air over five nights on ESPN2, starting tonight, Monday, Feb. 27, and running through Friday, March 3, with each of the five installments beginning at 11 p.m. ET.

Then on Saturday, March 4, again on ESPN2, the program will air in its entirety from 1 a.m.-9 a.m. ET, with limited interruptions.

Said ESPN President John Skipper: “I am so proud that ‘Academy Award-winning’ is now the latest accolade for ESPN Films. This award is not only a testament to the dedication and care that director Ezra Edelman, his team and many ESPN employees put into ‘O.J.: Made in America,’ but it is also a reflection of years of hard work that has gone into building the 30 for 30 brand and setting that high expectation of quality among our fans.”

Here’s the schedule for “O.J.: Made in America,” all on ESPN2 (times are ET):

Mon., Feb 27 — 11 p.m. — “O.J.: Made in America” – Part 1
