Premiering five years to the month that Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman were killed, this 60-minute America Undercover exclusive is a unique mix of performance and documentary footage in which Deena Mullen, a theatrical lighting designer, shares her unforgettable experience as one of 12 jurors who served on the O.J. Simpson civil trial in late 1996 and early 1997.
