Sheen is executive producing and narrating the six episode series, Hard Evidence: O.J. Is Innocent - which will attempt to prove that Simpson is innocent for the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. Simpson was acquitted for the famously dubbed "trial of the century" 20 years ago, but was found liable for the deaths the subsequent civil suit two years later. The question of whether O.J. actually committed the murders is still being debated.
O.J. Simpson is a hot topic in American homes for other reasons these days. The docuseries follows FX's big success with American Crime Story: The People vs O.J. Simpson and ESPN's upcoming O.J.: Made in America. The Sheen series is based on the book by William C. Dear, which promises "never before seen evidence" and a new theory as to how O.J.'s ex-wife and Goldman were killed.
The show will air on ID - Investigation Discovery - a cable network known for its murder and crime documentary dramas. The series will air in the first part of 2017.
