In 2017 television with have a third O.J. Simpson series added to the mix of programming. This one will try to prove the man’s innocence, and is aptly titled Hard Evidence: O.J. Is Innocent. Martin Sheen will serve as executive producer on the Investigation Discovery true crime docuseries. He’ll also narrate.
This look at the infamous crime will look at “critical new evidence in the slayings of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman, as well as unveil an entirely new hypothesis for what happened in Brentwood 20 years ago.” The series will be based on research by Texas private investigator William C. Dear, author of O.J. Is Innocent and I Can Prove It. Dear and Sheen have been working closely together to get this project made.
Hard Evidence will concentrate on three central questions: “What if there were enough evidence that proved O.J. Simpson did not murder his ex-wife Nicole or Ron Goldman? What if the real killer were still at large? And finally, what if a grand jury convened to reconsider the case based on new evidence?”
Dear told The Hollywood Reporter, “I’m hoping that when we do this series, the evidence should be more than enough to get a grand jury indictment. If I accomplish that, I will have accomplished a great deal in my life. I’ve done the best I can and I’m excited about the fact that finally I can get it out there.”
