The Secret Tapes of the OJ Simpson Case — The Untold Story and OJ Speaks: The Hidden Tapes are two riveting LMN documentary specials that will go behind the scenes of the criminal investigation this week, giving the public access for the first time to the secret tapes of OJ Simpson. Both specials are two hours each.
Simpson was accused of brutally killing his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her companion, Ron Goldman, at her home in Brentwood, California. The highly controversial case ended in an outright acquittal for Orenthal James Simpson by the mostly black jury, causing much upheaval, racial tension, and division to the very fabric of American society.
Embarking on the 20-year anniversary of this savage crime, Lifetime Movie Network’s The Secret Tapes of the OJ Simpson Case and A&E’s O.J. Speaks: The Hidden Tapes pop up at just the right time. Many feel that there is not much more to learn about the murders, but one of these secret tapes should offer new explosive information and a closer look at who O.J. Simpson really is.
The case file for the Simpson murders is massive, but Lifetime Movie Network producers managed to dig through the files and find a treasure trove of goodies, including never-before-heard recordings, statements, and interviews. Viewers will also obtain information that was found in the civil trial such as the plaintiffs’ deposition tapes.
The Secret Tapes of the O.J. Case: The Untold Story is described as follows.
“The LMN special, ‘The Secret Tapes of the O.J. Case: The Untold Story,’ reveals new insights into both the events surrounding the verdict of the criminal trial, and the various disturbing facets of O.J.’s personality, through never before heard statements by O.J. himself. The documentary exposes disturbing realities about O.J.’s thoughts, feelings and behavior before, during and after the trial. And, for the first time in 20 years, an audio recording that O.J. secretly taped, prior to the infamous Bronco Chase, is heard. The special features rare interviews with key players on both sides of the case, including extensive, candid discussions with Robert Kardashian and Kris Kardashian Jenner.”
Have a look at the O.J. Speaks: The Hidden Tapes synopsis.
“The A&E special, ‘O.J. Speaks: The Hidden Tapes,’ provides unique access to the civil trial, which found O.J. responsible for the wrongful deaths of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. Viewers gain exclusive access to the plaintiffs’ deposition tapes from the civil trial – which were locked away and buried in a storage warehouse for nearly 20 years. Executive producers, Stephen Auerbach and Chuck Braverman, worked closely with Fred Goldman to obtain the revealing and insightful deposition tapes. Family members, including Fred, and members of the civil trial legal team, including Daniel Petrocelli, are interviewed exclusively for the special.”
The O.J. Simpson secret tapes will allow the viewer to travel back in time to get an up close and personal look at O. J. Simpson’s face, demeanor, and personality, as well as hearing his own statements about what he was doing the night of the murders. And folks — it’s shocking. You won’t want to miss this exciting and compelling program, which will either change or confirm your opinion of whether Simpson was a guilty man who may have gotten away with murder.
