“Does he confess? You be the judge.” That’s what Fox asks viewers in a new promotional clip for “O.J. Simpson: The Lost Confession?,” set to air Sunday, March 11. You can watch the clip below.
The two-hour special will air with limited interruptions and will include public service announcements on domestic violence awareness throughout the program. Fox is billing the broadcast as an “explosive television event.”
The program will be hosted by Soledad O’Brien.
“In 2006, O.J. Simpson sat down with noted publisher, producer and host Judith Regan for a wide-ranging, no-holds-barred interview, in which Simpson gives a shocking hypothetical account of the events that occurred on the night his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman, were brutally murdered,” Fox says in an announcement for the program. “During their conversation, Simpson, in his own words, offers a detailed — and disturbing — description of what might have happened on that fateful night of June 12, 1994.”
The announcement adds: “For over a decade, the tapes of that infamous interview were lost — until now. Simpson’s explosive words finally will be heard, as he answers the questions that gripped a nation during the notorious ‘Trial of the Century.'”
O’Brien will be joined by a panel of analysts who will discuss the interview and provide new analysis and context.
