It's been more than 20 years since the "trial of the century" concluded with the acquittal of O.J. Simpson, a controversial prosecution and decision that has come to represent a watershed moment in the U.S. criminal justice system. But what if millions of Americans' commonly held beliefs and perceptions about the fateful night of June 12, 1994, were wrong? That question forms the basis of this six-part docuseries, which presents new theories and never-before-seen evidence to reveal a possible new suspect behind the case many believe they already know. The series follows LAPD forensic psychologist Dr. Kris Mohandie and Rhode Island police sergeant Derrick Levasseur as they join forces with Dallas-based private investigator William C. Dear, who has spent 21 years of his life gathering critical new evidence about who may be behind this crime.

MLB Network counts down its version of the 20 greatest games played since about 1950. The network first came up with 50 games and a "blue ribbon panel" -- aided by fan votes -- whittled that to 20. Hosts Bob Costas and Tom Verducci dissect each game, and given the format, with each episode running at least one hour, there's plenty of time to delve into nuances such as pitch selection, defensive alignment, managerial moves and so on. Also making each episode must-see TV for longtime baseball fans is the ex-players and managers who join Costas and Verducci to provide insight. Bucky Dent, for example, talks about his famous home run in the 1978 American League tiebreak game, and Johnny Bench and Fred Lynn reminisce about Game 6 of the 1975 World Series, the No. 1 game on the list.
