AceShowbiz - FX has unleashed the first teaser for "American Crime Story". Sharing no footage from the upcoming TV series, it previews %cO.J. Simpson%'s murder trial through the lines delivered by several characters such as Simpson himself (%cCuba Gooding Jr.%), his attorney Robert Shapiro (%cJohn Travolta%) and prosecutor Marcia Clark (%cSarah Paulson%).

The first season of the new anthology series will focus on the 1995 sensational murder trial that involved O.J. Simpson.

Vance% as Johnnie Cochran, %cBilly Magnussen% as Kato Kaelin, %cSelma Blair% as %cKris Jenner%, %cConnie Britton% as Faye Resnick who befriended Simpson's murdered ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson, and %cJordana Brewster% as the victim's sister Denise Brown.
