Trials of the Century is the story of ten of the Twentieth century’s epic trials, one per decade, starting with Harry Thaw in 1906 and ending with O.J. Simpson in 1994.  Each is a tale of celebrity and sex, prejudice and heartbreak, and how the arc of American justice is often pushed out of its trajectory of fairness by an insatiable media driven to sell copy.
