VICE Media and ESPN Films today announced that “O.J.: Made in America,” the award-winning documentary directed by Ezra Edelman, will air on VICELAND (with two intermissions) on January 1, 2017, from 4 pm ET to midnight.

The ambitious and highly acclaimed documentary revisits and redefines the story of O.J. Simpson through the perspective of race, domestic violence, celebrity culture, police brutality and the racial history of Los Angeles. Drawing from extraordinary footage and interviews with longtime friends and colleagues of Simpson, the documentary is an engrossing, compelling and unforgettable look at the events that captivated the nation.

“O.J.: Made in America” was recently shortlisted for Academy Award consideration for Best Documentary. The film has won a duPont Award, an AFI Special Award, a Gotham Independent Award (Best Documentary), four awards including Best Documentary Feature at the Critics’ Choice Documentary Awards, and it was named Best Documentary by the National Board of Review and the New York Film Critics Circle.

Launched in 1994, VICE now operates in over 30 countries and distributes its programming to viewers across digital, linear, mobile, film and socials.
