The cast also includes David Schwimmer as defense attorney Robert Kardashian, Paulson as prosecutor Marcia Clark, Connie Britton as Faye Resnick, Selma Blair as Kris Jenner, Courtney B. Vance as defense attorney Johnnie Cochran, and Bruce Greenwood as Los Angeles County District Attorney Gil Garcetti.

The limited series is executive produced by Ryan Murphy, along with Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Scott Alexander, Larry Karaszewski and Brad Falchuk. It is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions
