FX has released a couple of teaser promos for "The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story," revealing a quick sneak-peek scene that features John Travolta as famed celebrity lawyer Robert Shapiro.

The ten-episode anthology series -- which features a strong ensemble cast that includes Cuba Gooding Jr. (as O.J. Simpson), Courtney B. Vance (as Johnnie Cochran), Sarah Paulson (as Marcia Clark), Nathan Lane (as F. Lee Bailey), David Schwimmer (as Robert Kardashian), Selma Blair (as Kris Jenner) and Connie Britton (as Faye Resnick) -- is based on the best-selling book "The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson" by legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin.

Executive produced and directed by Ryan Murphy (American Horror Story, Scream Queens), the behind-the-scenes legal drama was written and created by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, the screenwriting team behind "The People vs. Larry Flynt," "Man on the Moon," and "Big Eyes."

"The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story" is scheduled to premiere on FX in February 2016.

Based on the book The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson by Jeffrey Toobin, the limited series is a look at the O.J. Simpson trial told from the perspective of the lawyers. It explores the chaotic behind-the-scenes dealings and maneuvering on both sides of the court, and how a combination of prosecution overconfidence, defense shrewdness, and the LAPD’s history with the city’s African-American community gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt.
