FX Network has released some new promo trailers for their upcoming miniseries "The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story," which features some of the star-studded cast from Ryan Murphy's dramatic take on "the trial of the century."

The first 30-second trailer, titled "The Cast," starts with new footage, including profiles of Sarah Paulson as district attorney Marcia Clark, David Schwimmer as OJ's friend and attorney Robert Kardashian, John Travolta as famed OJ lawyer Robert Shapiro, Courtney B. Vance as celebrity attorney Johnnie Cochran and Cuba Gooding Jr. as disgraced football star O.J. Simpson.

The second brief 15-second teaser is of John Travolta as lawyer Robert Shapiro asking the famous "dream team" a vital question to start off a meeting.

The third and final teaser is of David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian, giving his family some sage advice.

Written and created by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (The People vs. Larry Flynt and Man on the Moon), with Ryan Murphy directing the first two episodes of the mini-series, which is set to premiere on Tuesday, February 2, 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.
