Fox to air ‘OJ Simpson: The Lost Confession?’ special
LOS ANGELES — Fox TV says it will air an O.J. Simpson special including an unseen 2006 interview in which he theorizes about what happened the night his ex-wife was murdered.
The two-hour special, with the provocative title “O.J. Simpson: The Lost Confession?” will air 8 p.m. EST Sunday, March 11, Fox said Thursday. Soledad O’Brien is the host.
The previously unaired interview with Simpson was conducted by publisher Judith Regan. The videotapes had been shelved on the Fox studio lot and recently discovered.
According to Fox, the interview includes Simpson’s hypothetical account of the 1994 stabbing deaths of Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ron Goldman.
The network called his remarks detailed and “disturbing.”
O.J. Simpson was acquitted of criminal charges by jurors but found responsible in a subsequent civil trial.
