Marcia Clark was very clear about her opinion on the upcoming true-crime docuseries Hard Evidence: O.J. Is Innocent, executive produced and narrated by Martin Sheen, when she was asked about the project on Tueday’s Today.
Savannah Guthrie talked to the lead prosecutor on Simpson’s criminal case about the FX series about the trial, American Crime Story, and then referenced some other projects focusing on Simpson, including Sheen’s project.
“I actually know the theory and what they’re basing it on, and it’s nonsense,” Clark said firmly. “There’s nothing to it.”
The project is largely based on a Texas private investigator’s book O.J. Is Innocent and I Can Prove It, which presents an alternative theory to that of the Simpson case. Clark said she finds the docuseries “very offensive” because it is “nonsense.”
“There is no real logic, there’s no evidence to back it up,” added Clark. “They are aiming at Jason Simpson. That is to me the most hideous thing you could possibly do. He was very close to Nicole, he loved her.”
Jason Simpson is O.J. Simpson’s son, and Clark said it is unfair to pin the murders of Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman on him because he can’t defend himself by blaming his own father. “It’s baseless,” she said.
The six-part docuseries is expected to premiere early next year on Investigation Discovery.
