    O.J. reality TV show in the works

    MIAMI, Florida (CNN) -- O.J. Simpson -- acquitted in 1995 in the killings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman -- is preparing for his debut as the star of his own "Osbournes"-esque reality show.

    Fort Worth, Texas-based Urban America Television Network said it will distribute a 13-week series about the former football great to its 75 independent broadcast TV station affiliates starting in June, according to a story in The Hollywood Reporter.

    The series will chronicle Simpson's daily life in Miami using footage collected over several months of filming in 2001 and 2002.

    Simpson maintains he did not commit the crimes and has said he thinks the case eventually will be solved.

    Following the criminal trial, Simpson was sued by both families of the victims in civil court. The families were awarded $33.5 million in damages in 1997.

    Since the trials, Simpson and his children have been living near Miami on a $4 million pension earned with money from his careers in sports, acting and television pitchman. Such pensions are exempt from civil court judgments.

    In December 2001, federal agents searched Simpson's house and nine other area homes as part of an investigation into a drug, theft and money-laundering ring.

    Simpson was at home during the search and no large amounts of money or drugs were found, his attorney said at the time. Simpson was not involved in the ring, the attorney said.

    In October 2001, Simpson was acquitted of charges stemming from an alleged road-rage argument. He was accused of grabbing eyeglasses from a driver's face and scratching him.

    No beer in the fridge is a greater cause for concern.
     
  4. Ancient Rome lasted for about a thousand years...we've about reached the decadence of Tiberius' reign.

    So...we have another 200 years or so.
