ESPN making 30 for 30 mega-documentary on OJ Simpson

It has been almost 21 years since America became glued to their television screens to observe a slow-speed car chase involving former Heisman Trophy winner and USC running back OJ Simpson for (presumably) killing his wife, and 20 since much of America became outraged that he was acquitted.

The day that this occurred already has a 30 for 30 film devoted to the Simpson chase and its concurrence with many other major sporting events that were mostly ignored due to this event titled ‘June 17th, 1994′.

With the 20 year anniversary approaching in October, Bill Simmons revealed earlier today on Dan Le Batard’s radio show that ESPN is currently another documentary on the OJ Simpson case that delves deeper into the case than they did in the first film.

The film will also take a large look at the racial attitudes towards Simpson from his time at USC throughout his NFL career and post-retirement days.

Another interesting fact that was revealed about the documentary was its possible runtime.

While most 30 for 30 films run for 90 minutes to 2 hours maximum, this film could run for as long as five hours, which would most-likely lead it to be split into parts.
