    Fox sets O.J. sweeps spec

    Net plans 2-night sweeps event


    Simpson

    By Josef Adalian
    Variety
    November 15, 2006

    Fox is planning a two-night sweeps event whose title says it all: "O.J. Simpson: If I Did It, Here's How It Happened."


    Publisher Judith Regan has taped a wide-ranging interview with Simpson that will serve as the basis for the broadcast, set to air in two hourlong segs Nov. 27 and 29. In the interview, Fox said Simpson "describes how he would have carried out the murders he has vehemently denied committing for over a decade."

    Simpson was acquitted of killing Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, but found liable for both murders in a later civil suit.

    Regan is publishing the Simpson-penned "If I Did It," which goes on sale Nov. 30 -- the day after the special's conclusion airs.

    ReganBooks is based at Harper Collins, which is owned by Fox parent News Corp.

    Fox's O.J. special is being produced under the auspices of alternative topper Mike Darnell's department.

    "This is an interview that no one thought would ever happen," Darnell said. "It's the definitive last chapter in the 'Trial of the Century.' "

    It also marks the return of Darnell, Fox's own bad boy of entertainment. He has focused on more feel-good fare in recent years, from "Nanny 911" and "Celebrity Duets" to, of course, "American Idol."
    The O.J. special comes as Fox is struggling through another tough fall quarter, with virtually all its new skeins either dead or barely clinging to life. It's also one of the few true sweeps "events" this November. Nets have largely abandoned movies and specials in favor of series programming this sweeps.

    Why would they air this? Oh right, it's shameless Fox. What a completely bizarre and horrifying idea for a sweeps stunt.

    "O.J. Simpson: If I Did It, Here's How It Happened."

    does anyone else besides me find this a little funny? i mean, this is like OJ standing up and giving the middle finger to everyone and hiding behind the double jeopardy law.

    No I find it very funny in a sick, gallows humor kind of way. Who goes on National television to say 'I couldn't have commited that crime because I would have done it THIS way'. Yeah let's talk about how we would have killed two human beings in cold blood to proclaim our innocence O.J. What a DUMB ***.

    There aren't even words, really. There is no possible way I would ever watch this. Yet, I do find the title a little funny.

    "This is not about being heard. This is about trying to cash in, in a pathetic way, on some notoriety," said Sara Nelson, editor in chief of Publishers Weekly. "That a person keeps wanting to bring this up seems almost nutty to me."
    Almost?
