According to Marcia Clark, who was the district attorney's lead prosecutor in Simpson's trial, the new series – which premiered Tuesday – is "reliving a nightmare."

"Every bit of it is awful and hard for me," Clark, 62, said Wednesday on The View.

REVIEW: The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story Is a Superb, True Crime Must-See

Originally posted 02/02/2016 10:00PM

There are media frenzies … and there are media frenzies.

You can make a similar distinction when discussing legal circuses and celebrity meltdowns. The O.J. Simpson murder trial, a public narrative that delivered a series of sensational jolts from start to finish, consistently falls into the second camp. Everything veers to the right side of the ellipses – the sensational side, the side that goes too far, almost to the improbable.

The case, which ended with the acquittal of Simpson on two counts of murder, was referred to as "The Trial of the Century" – the last one – and within the first hour of FX's superb The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, you'll remember why. Or, if you weren't around for the white Bronco highway chase, Kato Kaelin (no, that's not the name of a minor character in the new Star Wars) or the astonishing moment when the glove didn't fit, you'll learn why.

There are trials of the century … and there are trials of the century.

Sarah Paulson Says Prosecutor Marcia Clark 'Didn't Have the Skin' to Handle Scrutiny that Came with O.J. Simpson Case

There's always more to a story than what meets the eye.

In this case, Sarah Paulson – who plays the role of prosecuting attorney Marcia Clark in the upcoming FX series American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson– explains the real-life struggles Clark endured behind the scenes of the high-profile trial.

"Having two small children and a husband who betrayed her and the public nature of all that scrutiny, which she was completely ill prepared to handle, it's like walking into a battle without any armor," Paulson, 41, told reporters during the FX Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour on Saturday in Pasadena, California. "She just didn't have the skin for it. She didn't have any of that 'razzle dazzle' that [Johnnie] Cochran had and they all had. She just wasn't designed as much for public life."
