(Albuquerque, NM) Tuesday, June 7, 2016 - REELZ today announced the one hour original documentary special Kardashian: The Man Who Saved O.J. Simpson will premiere Monday, June 13 at 9pm ET/ PT. Robert Kardashian, father of the clan that became a multi-million dollar showbiz empire, was also the man who helped save O.J. Simpson from a double murder conviction. This special gives viewers an inside look at Kardashian's friendship with O.J. which altered the course of one of the most talked about murder trials. Kardashian: The Man Who Saved O.J. Simpson is produced by P&L Media.
Kardashian: The Man Who Saved O.J. Simpson delves into the story behind the footage of Robert Kardashian handling the infamous Louis Vuitton garment bag in plain sight of TV news crews and investigators. Included are interviews with Ron Goldman's sister Kim, Jeffrey Felix, a former correctional officer who befriended O.J. Simpson when he worked in the prison where Simpson is behind bars, Associated Press reporter Michael Fleeman who covered the trial, attorney Carl Douglas who was a member of the defense team under Johnny Cochran and many more.
Some say the Kardashian era began in 2006 when Kim Kardashian first walked past the velvet ropes of the West Hollywood nightclub Hyde with her then best friend Paris Hilton. Others say the Kardashian era launched a year later after Kim's mother and Robert Kardashian's first ex-wife, Kris Jenner, reportedly oversaw the sale of Kim's sex tape with former boyfriend Ray J. But the era of the Kardashians was actually ushered in more than 20 years ago when Robert Kardashian made the decision to save a friend he believed to be innocent of murder.
