There’s more of O.J. Simpson‘s story coming to the small screen.

A new six-part docu-series about the former football star’s famed 1994 murder trial from executive producer Martin Sheen has been picked up by Investigation Discovery, reports The Hollywood Reporter and Variety.

The news comes just ahead of the season finale of the much buzzed-about FX seriesAmerican Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, a Ryan Murphy series also chronicling the case.

Hard Evidence: O.J. Simpson Is Innocent, which will be narrated by Sheen, will attempt to prove Simpson is innocent in the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman through critical new evidence, according to THR.

It will be based on more than two decades of research by Texas private investigator William C. Dear and his book, O.J. Is Innocent and I Can Prove It.

Hard Evidence: O.J. Is Innocent is expected to premiere in early 2017.
