The first look trailer of The People v. O.L. Simpson: American Crime Story doesn’t just promise a riveting account of the details surrounding the “trial of the century,” it vows to serve up little known facts about the case.

“There’s a lot of things in this that people don’t know, or they certainly don’t remember, ” Sarah Paulson, who plays prosecutor Marcia Clark, said in the teaser.

American Crime Story will retell the story of the O.J. Simpson trial, following the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson.

The events surrounding the case will take place over ten episodes.

In the trailer, made up of cast interviews and clips from the show, key players are shown, as they attempt to piece together what happened while the story garners national media attention.

“There’s a real urge to understand what really happened and how this went down,” Cuba Gooding Jr. who stars as Simposon said. “If he did do it, how could you find him innocent?!”

An all star cast – including John Travolta as attorney Robert Shapiro, David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian and Selma Blair as Kris Jenner – is slated to bring the trial to life again on Feb. 2.

The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story airs at 10 p.m. on FX.
