American Crime Story: The People v OJ Simpson's upcoming chapter will focus on prosecutor Marcia Clark played by Sarah Paulson. Episode 6 is titled: Marcia, Marcia, Marcia, which will air on 8 March at 10pm ET/PT on FX.
The official synopsis reads as follows:
A promo for the episode shows Johnnie Cochran telling his co-lawyers on how to prove OJ's innocence. He says, "The most important thing is the story, we need to be telling a better story."
This is followed by a confident Marcia telling Christopher Darden, "I can tell you what is going to happen in that court today. I am ready for anything." Then, Robert Shapiro is seen questioning detective Tom Lange. He says, "You took evidence from a crime scene, you drove it home, and didn't book it until the next day." To which the detective replies, "Yes."
Marcia's case is getting weak as Shapiro and his team are questioning the credentials of every evidence. Marcia's boss then says, "It looks like you are losing control..." But Marcia denies it and claims " I will handle it." Following this, Macia tells F. Lee Bailey, "You can't get away with lying, there are too many people watching."
The promo ends with Clark saying, "Your honour, your people will now call detective Mark Fuhrman (played by Steven Pasquale).
Meanwhile, homicide detective Mark Fuhrman, who became one of the most controversial figures in the Simpson trial in real life, recently slammed the FX series for highlighting incorrect facts. In an interview with The New York Post, Fuhrman said, "The last 20 years, I have watched the facts dismissed by the media, journalists and the public simply because it does not fit within the politically correct narrative."
"At this late date, FX is attempting to establish a historical artifact with this series without reaching out to any prosecution sources. In a time when Americans read less and less and investigative journalism is on vacation, it is sad that this movie will be the historical word on this infamous trial. After all, it was 'based on a true story," he added.
