O. J. Simpson will be interviewed in a two-part Fox television special to promote a book that will address how he could have killed his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Lyle Goldman. “If I Did It” is will be released Nov. 30 by Regan, an imprint of HarperCollins, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., reports the Los Angeles Times. Another division of News Corp, the Fox network, will air a two-part interview with Simpson, conducted by his publisher, Judith Regan, on Nov. 27 and Nov. 29. Simpson promises a “bone-chilling account of the night of the murders,” which took place June 12, 1994.
Simpson, who was acquitted of murder charges, was found responsible for the killings in a civil trial. Fred Goldman, the father of Ron Goldman, has continued to pursue collection of the $33.5-million 1997 judgment that was awarded against Simpson by a civil jury. “It is an all-time low for television,” Goldman said. “To imagine that a major network would put a murderer on TV to have him tell how he would murder the mother of his children and my son is beyond comprehension.”
