ESPN to Air Encore Presentation of the Five-Part 30 for 30 Documentary “O.J.: Made in America” March 23-26


ESPN will air an encore presentation of the Academy-Award winning 30 for 30 documentary “O.J.: Made in America” over four nights in primetime from March 23-26. The film originally premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2016, premiered on ABC/ESPN in June 2016, and won the Oscar for Best Documentary Feature at the 89th Academy Awards in February 2017.

It is perhaps the defining cultural tale of 20th-century America, one that centers around two of our country’s greatest fixations: race and celebrity. Directed by Peabody-, Emmy- and Academy-Award winner Ezra Edelman, “O.J.: Made in America” explores these themes in tracing a personal journey, from how Orenthal James Simpson first became a football star, to why the country fell in love with him off the field, to his being accused of murdering his ex-wife, his subsequent acquittal and then ultimately serving a jail sentence for another crime.
