The journey to making “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” starts in a used bookstore in Vancouver roughly six years ago. I was shooting a film there when I spotted a copy of “The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson” on the shelf. I bought it because I was a fan of Jeffrey Toobin.
