Publisher and TV/film producer Judith Regan; attorney Christopher Darden; Nicole Brown Simpson family representative Eve Shakti Chen; anti-domestic violence advocate Rita Smith; and retired FBI profiler Jim Clemente will serve as analysts on the shocking special O.J. SIMPSON: THE LOST CONFESSION?, airing Sunday, March 11 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
On the two-hour broadcast, hosted by award-winning journalist Soledad O'Brien, analysts Regan, Darden, Chen, Smith and Clemente will watch and discuss Simpson's never-before-seen 2006 interview with Regan, providing timely analysis and context for this historic and newsworthy footage. Additionally, the special will air with limited interruptions and will feature public service announcements on domestic violence awareness throughout the program.
In 2006, O.J. Simpson sat down with Regan for a wide-ranging, no-holds-barred interview, in which Simpson gives a shocking hypothetical account of the events that occurred on the night his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman, were brutally murdered. During their conversation, Simpson, in his own words, offers a detailed - and disturbing - description of what might have happened on that fateful night of June 12, 1994.
Today, Simpson is a free man. His criminal case and subsequent civil trial, however, continue to captivate people around the world. Although exonerated of murdering Brown Simpson and Goldman, Simpson was later sued in civil court, found responsible for both murders and ordered to pay $33.5 million in restitution to the victims' families. In 2007, he was arrested in Las Vegas on felony charges of kidnapping, armed robbery and counts of assault with a deadly weapon. The following year, he was found guilty on 12 counts and sentenced to up to 33 years in prison. Simpson was released on parole five months ago on October 1, 2017.
