OJ Simpson Is Being Released From Prison - Here's What He's Doing Once He's Out

O.J. Simpson is up for parole after serving nine of his 33-year sentence. If paroled, he could be on the streets again in October. Already, entertainment companies are seeking to sign him up for interviews, documentaries and reality TV.

Simpson is serving a 33-year sentence for kidnapping, robbery, and assault with a deadly weapon after he and his companions burst into a hotel room and demanded property Simpson believes was stolen from him. Some believe the judge giving Simpson the harshest penalty possible for each offense was not so much a reflection of his 2008 crimes as it was payback for the double-homicide for which he was acquitted.

In what was dubbed the 'trial of the century', the former football hero was exposed as an abusive husband and many believe he killed his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman. In an unprecedented trial, his 'dream team' of lawyers played every legal trick they could think of to get him off, and it worked. Simpson later went on to be found responsible for the deaths in a civil trial, and a large majority of the population has never doubted that he got away with murder.

According to TMZ, 'some producers are getting ready to scramble to sign him'.

Producers don't believe broadcasting companies would be willing to air O.J. Simpson shows for fear of public backlash and a loss of advertising revenue. However, Pay-Per-View shows could be a lucrative endeavor, considering the fascination with O.J. and the infamous murder trial never seems to die down.

Only a year ago, "The People v. O.J. Simpson", a made-for-television docudrama about the Simpson murder trial, managed to land a number of big-name stars who wanted to be involved in the project and garnered huge audiences. Another project, “O.J.: Made in America," an in-depth documentary examining Simpson's life and the cultural climate at the time of the murders, won an Academy Award.

Simpson has tried to cash in on his fame before. To raise money, he wrote a book entitled, “If I Did It,” and wrote a macabre account of how he ‘would have’ actually murdered his wife and her friend. In the book, Simpson acts as though he were a bystander to the actual crime and reveals chilling details.
