NETFLIX, INC. LOGO and Television Distribution announced their first global SVOD licensing agreement. Netflix will be the exclusive global streaming home for FX’s hit, American Crime Story. The first season of the franchise will be available globally on Netflix, excluding Canada, in 2017 with all seasons made available after their respective broadcast windows. The 22-time Emmy® nominated first season, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story concluded its 10-episode run as cable’s most-watched new series of 2016.

From executive producers Ryan Murphy, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Scott Alexander, Larry Karaszewski and Brad Falchuk, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story stars John Travolta, Cuba Gooding Jr., Sarah Paulson, David Schwimmer, Courtney B. Vance, Sterling K. Brown, Nathan Lane, Kenneth Choi, Christian Clemenson and Bruce Greenwood. The limited series is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions.

The first season of this limited series goes inside the O.J. Simpson trial and explores the chaotic, behind-the-scenes dealings and maneuvering on both sides of the court, and how a combination of prosecution overconfidence, defense shrewdness and the LAPD’s history with the city’s African-American community gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt. The second season of American Crime Story focusing on Hurricane Katrina will debut on FX next year.

“We’re excited to evolve our relationship with FOX and to bring their lauded content to our members around the world,” said Sean Carey, Vice President of Global Television. “Given the popularity of the first season of American Crime Story, we are thrilled to offer this acclaimed drama series to our members.”

“We’re extremely pleased to continue our relationship with Netflix on this groundbreaking deal,” said Gina Brogi, EVP Worldwide Pay TV and SVOD, Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution. “We are very proud of the first installment of this franchise, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, which has received extraordinary critical acclaim and perfectly captured the cultural Zeitgeist.”
