This week, anchors Vinnie Politan and Seema Iyer serve up two brand new Court TV podcasts:
The morning of January 24th, 1995 the eyes of the world homed in on a courtroom in Los Angeles, California for what was being called “The Trial of the Century.” Hall of Fame football legend, actor and spokesperson O. J. Simpson was going on trial for the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and aspiring restaurateur Ron Goldman.
The 37-week trial was televised gavel to gavel on Court TV. It was the ultimate reality drama and to this day – 25 years later – still captivates people. So much so Court TV is presenting the new docuseries OJ25 – a 37-week deep dive into the trial featuring some of the original key players involved. In this week’s podcast Vinnie and Seema look back at their own recollections of the trial and we’ll also learn about OJ25 from Roger Cossack, who hosts the series and cut his legal journalist teeth covering the trial.
Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has produced some of the most critically acclaimed films on our time. He has made people movie stars, cemented the careers of writers and allowed directors to flourish. Some say he did it all with a heavy hand, too.
Will he approach his criminal defense in his sexual assault trial the same way? Will Harvey Weinstein “produce” his own defense? Those are the questions Vinnie and Seema will discuss as they look at the cast of lawyers Weinstein has hired to represent him against sexual assault charges that could send him to prison for the rest of his life. That cast has been a revolving door of some of the best criminal defense lawyers in the country. Is his final “dream team” what he needs to prove his innocence? For all the latest updates and full trial coverage, watch Court TV.
