How to watch ‘The Life and Murder of Nicole Brown Simpson’ documentary

Nearly three decades after Nicole Brown Simpson’s death, Lifetime is set to release a two-part documentary shedding new light on her story.

Dubbed “The Life and Murder of Nicole Brown Simpson,” the series — also streaming live on services like Philo — is said to feature exclusive details, home videos and interviews with participants including Nicole’s sisters, Dominique, Denise and Tanya Brown.

“There are 50 interviews that we did for this series, and for the 50 that agreed, we reached out to countless others to interview and try to build as comprehensive and dynamic a story as possible,” executive producer Jesse Daniels told The Hollywood Reporter of the documentary event.

A trailer for the emotional documentary dropped in April, spanning everything from Browns’ childhood home videos to her 1994 murder case — and the subsequent highly-publicized trial of her ex-husband OJ Simpson, who was found not guilty but later civilly liable in a wrongful death lawsuit.

“It’s been thirty years, maybe it’s time to rekindle the flame of Nicole,” Dominque Brown says in a trailer for the documentary, which airs shortly before the 30th anniversary of the day Brown was found stabbed to death along with her friend Ronald Goldman.

The docu-series is also set to delve deeper into Nicole’s life outside of the trial and her relationship with the football player, who passed away in April following a battle with pancreatic cancer.

“I have wanted to do a documentary for 10 years, but I never felt the timing was right,” Denise Brown previously told Variety. “I thought if I could find someone who would make Nicole’s voice be heard, and not make it about the trial or him, I would be happy.”
