A Nicole Brown Simpson docuseries is in the works at the Lifetime network, which reportedly will attempt to reclaim her story following her and friend Ron Goldman’s murder in 1994.

News of the two-part series, titled “The Life and Murder of Nicole Brown Simpson,” dropped one day after her ex-husband O.J. Simpson’s death at 76 following a battle with prostate cancer, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The former NFL star and Brown Simpson were married for seven years and share two kids. In 1994, she was found murdered at the Brentwood home she shared with Simpson.

Simpson was famously acquitted in 1995 of the double murder of his ex-wife Brown and Goldman following a murder trial that captured the attention of the nation and created a media frenzy.

The docuseries has reportedly been in the works for more than a year with the plan to release it in June, marking the 30th anniversary of her and Goldman’s murder on June 12, 1994, People magazine noted. Dozens of close family and friends were reportedly involved in the series, which is said to have unprecedented family access and provide exclusive archival video, the outlet noted. With Simpson’s death on Thursday, the docuseries could reportedly drop even sooner.

The series is part of the network’s larger Stop Violence Against Women initiative, and will reportedly tell Nicole Brown’s side and her multiple experiences with domestic violence, People noted.

Despite Simpson’s acquittal, the actor/athlete was found liable for Brown and Goldman’s deaths two years after the murder trial in a civil trial brought by the victims’ families and was ordered to pay more than $33 million in damages.


Simpson was later arrested in Las Vegas and charged with armed robbery and kidnapping in 2007. A group of men led by Simpson entered a room at the Palace Station hotel-casino at gunpoint with the intention of stealing sports memorabilia which he claimed had been taken from him. He was sentenced to 33 years in prison with a minimum of nine years without parole and was released in 2017 after serving that minimum. The former NFL star was released from parole in 2021.

On Thursday, Simpson’s family shared the news that he had died.

“On April 10th, our father, Orenthal James Simpson, succumbed to his battle with cancer,” the statement on X read. “He was surrounded by his children and grandchildren. During this time of transition, his family asks that you please respect their wishes for privacy and grace.”
