AMERICAN CRIME STORY is tackling the infamous O.J. Simpson case in its first season and now the first full-length preview has been released.

The limited series boasts a star-studded cast, including Cuba Gooding Jr. as O.J. Simpson, John Travolta as defense attorney Robert Shapiro, David Schwimmer as defense attorney Robert Kardashian, Sarah Paulson as prosecutor Marcia Clark, Courtney B. Vance as defense attorney Johnnie Cochran, and Bruce Greenwood as Los Angeles County District Attorney Gil Garcetti.

The entire series is a behind the scenes look at the Simpson trial from the perspective of the lawyers, focusing on the background maneuvering on both sides of the courtroom. The race issue plays a big role in the series — as it did in the trial itself.

AMERICAN CRIME STORY premieres on February 2 at 10:00 p.m. on FX.
