Production on Ryan Murphy’s new TV drama American Crime Story is underway, and an early look at the show’s stellar cast appears promising.

The series follows the 1995 “Trial of the Century,” when O.J. Simpson was tried for double homicide.

Kris Jenner, formerly Kris Kardashian, was married to the late lawyer Robert Kardashian, a member of Simpson’s “Dream Team” defense counsel. Friends star David Schwimmer plays Robert Kardashian in the upcoming series.

Meanwhile, Blair’s co-star John Travolta was spotted on set as defense attorney Robert Shapiro. Sporting a short wig, the Pulp Fiction star’s look seems spot on.

A source tells ET that filming took place Thursday, and first up on the production schedule was a funeral scene. Filming took place at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, and took place throughout the day despite rain and uncooperative weather.

Rounding out the show’s cast is Cuba Gooding Jr., who stars as the infamous O.J. Simpson, American Horror Story alum Sarah Paulson plays prosecuting attorney Marcia Clark and Furious 7’s Jordana Brewster is Denise Brown, sister of murder victim Nicole Brown.
