Travolta remembers when Simpson was riding in a white Ford Bronco in that infamous slow-speed pursuit in 1994 before he surrendered to police and later faced murder charges in the deaths of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ronald Goldman.

“I had just gotten back from the Cannes Film Festival where we won the Palme d’Or for ‘Pulp Fiction.’ I was on this kind of high with a new (revived) career and then this American tragedy was happening,” the actor said.

Ryan Murphy is directing the series, now about one week into filming.
