“Glee”‘s Ryan Murphy isn’t done creating hit TV series aside from the upcoming  “American Horror Story: Freak Show” on FX. Murphy is going to do another American story with his flair for giving stories an interesting twist and dark, unnerving plots. This time but this time around, it involves crime, corruption and conspiracies.  

“American Crime Story” has been ordered to series that involves crimes, corruption and conspiracies. The show consists of 10 episodes, revolving around the controversial murder  trial of former football star and actor Orenthal James “O.J.” Simpson.

The upcoming series will then have the title of “American Crime Story” The People V. O.J. Simpson,” which was based on “The Run of His Life: The People V. O.J. Simpson” book written by Jeffrey Toobin. His book was written using the perspective of a lawyer.

The show will skip the pilot stage and directly go to production and if the first season succeeds, we can expect more seasons that will revolve in different cases.

Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewki (“The People vs. Larry Flynt”) will write the script and Murphy together with Brad Falchuk will produce and direct the show. Production starts early of 2015 and will take place in Los Angeles.
