This week, in recognition of the death of O.J. Simpson last Wednesday, April 10, we are reaching into the archives of Crime Story Media to present a series of special interviews related to the way that the historical narrative of Simpson’s trial for the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman has been preserved for posterity.

Today, we present Part One of Kary Antholis’s two-part conversation with Ezra Edelman, Producer and director of the Oscar and Emmy winning, ten hour documentary O.J.: Made in America.

During this part of the conversation, they discuss Ezra’s path into storytelling, the development of his craft as a cinematic storyteller, the evolution of his interest in sports and African-American history, how he was convinced to make the film, and the process of conceptualizing and producing the documentary.
