'American Crime Story' director spills secrets from behind the scenes

Director Anthony Hemmingway has worked with his share of top-tier talent. But even he concedes he’s never seen anything like the A-list group assembled for American Crime Story: The People Vs. O.J. Simpson.
“It was like we were in the playoffs, and we had a team — literally a Dream Team, ready to win the championship,” he tells Mashable. The term is fitting; in the ’90s, media used that same sports analogy to describe Simpson’s starry lineup of defense attorneys.
Hemmingway is one of the three principal visionaries behind the camera on Crime Story; he directed five of its ten episodes.
