Court & Crime Additions

The two live trial channels – Court TV and Law & Crime – have added new true crime series to their linear schedules: OJ25 and Justice Rules.

Court TV, predominantly a free over-the-air-channel, reaches into its archives for OJ25. Reliving the OJ Simpson double murder trial in chronological order, the hour-long series will debut at 9 pm ET this Thursday, January 23, and then run for 37 consecutive weeks – encapsulating what took place during the corresponding weeks 25 years ago, in 1995.

OJ25, which includes new interviews with many participants from the trial, will be hosted by Roger Cossack, CNN’s legal analyst at the time.  

Law & Crime, predominantly a free streaming service, will run Justice Rules on Mondays and Tuesdays at 5:30 pm. The half-hour show, which goes “in-depth into true crime stories that have had a profound impact on the lives of victims and their families,” has been running on TV stations owned by Cox Media Group.
