Simpson: American Crime Story,” and written by Kyle Long, the executive story editor of “Suits.” The script would be based on the experiences of former Los Angeles police detective Greg Kading, author of “Murder Rap: The Untold Story of the Biggie Smalls & Tupac Shakur Murder Investigations by the Detective Who Solved Both Cases.”
