'American Crime Story' (FX, TBD)
Fans of producer Ryan Murphy's FX anthology series American Horror Story will be pleased to know that this spin-off is already on-track to be as ballsy and outrageous as the original. For its first season (soon to begin filming), American Crime Story tackles the O.J. Simpson trial, with Cuba Gooding, Jr. as Simpson, Sarah Paulson as Marcia Clark, and David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian. The show's head writers will be Ed Wood/Big Eyes/The People vs. Larry Flynt screenwriters Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski – two guys attuned to the freakier side of pop history. N.M.
