Twenty years after O.J. Simpson was found not guilty of killing his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman, A&E looks back at the case, the verdict and the civil trial that finally proved the football star’s undoing. Featuring exclusive access to O.J.’s stunning deposition tapes and new interviews with folks in the know,  O.J. Speaks: The Hidden Tapes gives viewers insider access to elements of the case that courtroom cameras couldn’t capture.

After the shocking verdict was rendered on Oct. 3, 1995 — ending the so-called  “Trial of the Century,” which also ushered Kato Kaelin, Mark Fuhrman and the Kardashians into the pop culture lexicon — racial tensions boiled over and the families of the victims struggled to move on.

In 1997, the Goldman family and Nicole Brown Simpson’s estate joined forces to bring multiple civil charges against O.J.  — requiring him to testify under oath about his involvement in the crime for the first time. Shocking truths about Simpson and his and Nicole’s marriage quickly emerged.

Speaks: The Hidden Tapes, also features brand-new commentary from Ron Goldman’s father, Fred Goldman; O.J.’s friends Ron Shipp and Fred Levinson; and members of the civil trial legal team. including Daniel Petrocelli and Laurie Levenson.

  1. I don’t think it’s right to try to keep oj in prison it can’t bring them back who are you or I to judge he only has one real one and it’s not there parents or the rest of society so live your lives and let him live the rest of his all of our days are numbered have a great day

  2. OJ is not guilty of murder, however tho George Zimmerman is a cold blooded murder inwhom is bragging about it , and famous for it.

    Then lets talk about all of the other killings of young innocent blacks . But they so stuck on a 20 yr old murder of 2 white people, inwhich the man was found not guilty by the same system inwhich constantly posses injustice on many of my people. But now it’s a problem. For real .

    • Shut up
      Its a TV show . and that’s very close minded because you know what there’s black children being killed every day and no one’s rioting for them. No one’s protesting innocent lives you’re more worried about these thugs shut the f*** up you stupid

  3. Fry him- just get him out of South Florida, he’s not welcome here.
    He needs to remain in prison until he dies .

    • That’s not anyone’s right to take a life so rather he did or didn’t we all have our own opinions but we don’t know for sure there is one who does know and that’s the one we all have to meet in the end so if he’s out he should be able to live the rest of his days wherever he is because if he’s put away or living in society it doesn’t change a thing have a blessed day

    • Do you know for sure we’re you there it seems likely but who are you to judge we all make mistakes and God forgives every sin except blasphemy against the holy ghost and himself and we are no better with our rich assumptions have a great day
