O.J. Simpson is a free man, and could soon find his way to television screens across America.
On Thursday, the former NFL star was granted parole after serving nine years in a Nevada prison for an armed robbery conviction. Simpson’s hearing drew nationwide coverage including live-streaming video, and now reality show producers are reportedly hoping to cash in off of that popularity.
A report from the New York Post’s Page Six claimed that O.J. Simpson is already being “hounded” with offers for a new show.
O.J. would need permission first, the report noted.
“The question will be if that’s a provision of parole to not do media,” a source told the gossip page. “It would be odd because he hasn’t bothered anyone in the media. He would have to get permission from parole to do that. Whatever he does for work, he will have to get it approved.”
