Watch the first trailer for FX's O.J. Simpson 'American Crime Story'

Watch the one-minute glimpse into "American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson"

Ahead of its Feb. 2 premiere, FX released the first full-length trailer for "American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson" on Wednesday.

The one-minute glimpse into the hotly anticipated Ryan Murphy series, which chronicles the events surrounding the O.J. Simpson trial, showcases the all-star cast including John Travolta, Sarah Paulson and Cuba Gooding Jr., who plays the famed, titular character.

The video begins with Paulson's Marcia Clark getting a phone call, learning about the Nicole Brown Simpson murder in Brentwood. The "AHS" vet breaks down in character, as the trailer flashes through dramatic scenes, including Selma Blair's Kris Jenner fighting with David Schwimmer's Robert Kardashian, who defended O.J. during the 1995 trial.

"The trial wasn't the whole story," the trailer says. "This is."

The cast is rounded out by Travolta who stars as attorney Robert Shapiro; Courtney B. Vance who plays Johnnie Cochran; Billy Magnussen as Kato Kaelin; and Connie Britton as Faye Resnick.

"American Crime Story" hails from Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions and exec producers Murphy, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Brad Falchuk, Dante Di Loreto and scribes Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, who are adapting Jeffrey Toobin's book "The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson" for television. Murphy also directed the first episode.
