With the runaway success of the FX series The People v. O.J. Simpson, it only seemed like a matter of time until someone presented the “we”ve got proof that O.J. didn”t do it” story. That network is Investigation Discovery as today they announced plans for Hard Evidence: O.J. is Innocent.

The six-episode series, executive produced and narrated by Martin Sheen, will feature a former LAPD forensic psychologist and an ex-Rhode Island police officer re-examining everything that led up to the “Trial of the Century.” According to the network, the show will present new theories, previously unseen evidence and even a possible new suspect in the brutal 1994 killings of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.

Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, said in a press release, “With an intriguing theory based on new and never disclosed details, Hard Evidence: O.J. is Innocent will leave viewers second-guessing everything they have ever known about the case, questioning yet again – did he do it?”

Sheen added, “The series intends to explore three questions: What if there were enough evidence that proved O.J. Simpson did not murder his ex-wife Nicole or Ron Goldman? What if the real killer were still at large? And finally, what if a grand jury convened to reconsider the case based on new evidence?”

One of the show”s other executive producers is Bill Dear. Dear, a Dallas-based private investigator, is author of the controversial 2012 book O.J. is Innocent and I Can Prove It.

Hard Evidence: O.J. is Innocent is set to debut in early 2017.
