Ezra Edelman to discuss O.J.: Made in America 30 for 30 film
On Thursday night in New York City, writer and director of the ESPN Films’ 30 for 30 O.J.: Made In America will discuss the film with New York Magazine’s Rembert Browne at the Museum of the Moving Image. The five-part film that delves into the history of not just the murders of Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman and the subsequent trial of O.J. Simpson, it also shows the racial and economic climate of Los Angeles and the United States that led up to the incident.
The film goes into tremendous detail about Simpson’s past, his career at the University of Southern California from a social standpoint and the world in which his celebrity rose in such a unique manner. The first episode airs Saturday, June 11 at 9 p.m. EST on ABC. The following episodes will air on ESPN on Tuesday, June 14, then on June 15, 17 and 18.
Last weekend on ESPN Radio’s The Undefeated special, The Undefeated style writer Jill Hudson, staff writer Justin Tinsley and I sat down with Edelman to discuss what it was like to make the definitive documentary about the fallen NFL star and what happened in his life after he was acquitted.
