Over 21 years after OJ Simpson was acquitted of murder in the deaths of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman, a new six-part docu-series from Investigation Discovery will offer a whole new theory of the crime. Hard Evidence: OJ Is Innocent is based on the findings of private investigator Williams Dear, who has spent the last two decades uncovering new evidence in the case, which allegedly includes a previously unknown eyewitness.
“This revealing series will now show you what may have really happened based upon all the facts, so for the first time, you will be able to judge for yourself,” Dear told Variety. “I am certain viewers will be shocked to learn who OJ may have actually been covering up for.”
It’s unclear what theory Hard Evidence will present, but actor Martin Sheen, who signed on to be the series’ executive producer and narrator after meeting Dear through his son Charlie, promises it will raise plenty of questions.
“What if there were enough evidence that proved O.J. Simpson did not murder his ex-wife Nicole or Ron Goldman?” Sheen said in a press release from Investigation Discovery. “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?”
What if, INDEED. Hard Evidence is expected to air on Investigation Discovery in early 2017.
