Welcome to 2017! What better way to open the new year with a good old-fashioned television binge? To kick things off, we are pleased to bring you the entirety of ESPN's "30 for 30" documentary O.J.: Made in America—director Ezra Edelman’s unanimously lauded saga of race, celebrity, media, violence and the criminal justice system. The story of O.J. Simpson is a defining cultural tale of modern America, and two decades after its unforgettable climax, it continues to fascinate, polarize and even, yes, develop new chapters. Drawing upon more than 70 interviews, this eight-hour docu-event is the perfect way to sink into your new year.

There are five episodes of roughly 96 minutes each, to be shown with intermissions of 15 minutes each plus a 30 minute break at 530pm. Event end time is roughly 11:15pm

Critical praise:

  • CNN - " Feels like a master class on the nexus of race, sports, media and politics."
  • Entertainment Weekly - "Extraordinary on so many levels."
  • The Globe and Mail - "It’s a remarkable, scintillating achievement."
  • The Washington Post - "This story has at last been perfectly captured and perfectly told."
