It is doubtful that such a high profile platform of this nature for an illustrator has ever existed before. A 2 hour prime time, highly publicized, network Special focusing on the most publicized trial in American history that will use 24 full color illustrations by Famous Frames Artist Steve Werblun to visualize the majority of the story.
LMN will debut The Secret Tapes of the O.J. Case: The Untold Story, while sister network A&E will unveil O.J. Speaks: The Hidden Tapes. Both two-hour programs — which are executive produced by American Tragedy author Lawrence Schiller, who was close to Simpson lawyer Robert Kardashian — feature never-before-heard recordings and interviews. ABS Productions, the company who produced these 2 shows for A&E and LMN use Famous Frames artist Steve Werblun’s courtroom illustrations from both O.J. Simpson Trials, which he covered for a conglomerate of TV news stations. Most notably CNN and NBC News. Steve Weblun’s art served as the primary visuals for the sequences in these two programs that focus on the trial testimony and what actually occurred in the courtroom.
The Secret Tapes of the O.J. Case: The Untold Story promises insight into how Simpson was acquitted of the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman on Oct. 3, 1995. Steve is pleased to have renewed interest in his work saying, “I'm quite excited about my illustrations being used. Unlike a news story, the art is shot and edited cinematically”
