FX has released a series of six teaser images for American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson, which is set to premiere in early 2016.

From Ryan Murphy, American Crime Story will focus on a new “true crime” case each season. The 10 episode freshman run, subtitled The People V. O.J. Simpson, will explore the O.J. Simpson trial told from the perspective of the lawyers and how a combination of prosecution confidence, defense wiliness, and the LAPD’s history with the city’s African-American community gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt.

The cast for the ten episode series includes John Travolta as Robert Shapiro, Cuba Gooding Jr as O.J. Simpson, David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian, Sarah Paulson as Deputy DA Marcia Clark, Courtney B. Vance as Johnnie Cochran, Selma Blair as Kris Jenner and Bruce Greenwood as Los Angeles County District Attorney Gil Garcetti.

The debut season of American Crime Story is based on a book by CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin, with Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski penning the scripts. 20th Century Fox Television and FX Productions are producing with Ryan Murphy, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Brad Falchuk, Scott Alexander, Larry Karaszewski and Dante Di Loreto executive producing.

The six teaser images FX released show Sarah Paulson as Marcia Clark, Billy Magnussen as Kato Kaelin, John Travolta as Robert Shapiro, David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian, Cuba Gooding, Jr. as O.J. Simpson and Courtney B. Vance as Johnnie Cochran. Check them out in the gallery below:
