Fact Checking The People V. O.J. Simpson

The FX original series The People v. O.J. Simpson has everyone talking about the OJ Simpson trial once again, and despite the show's added drama and intense performances it's as well researched as you get when it comes to crime shows.

That's because the series is based on a thoroughly researched book by Jeffrey Toobin called The Run Of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson, which shows what the people surrounding the trial were going through as well.

Take Robert Kardashian for example- the show is playing up his daughters for obvious reasons, but they're not really taking liberties when they show Rob idol worshipping OJ, nor is the part about OJ threatening to commit suicide in Kim's bedroom made up.
