posted by Bill Galluccio -

Fox is finally airing a shelved interview from 2006 in which O.J. Simpson gave "a shocking hypothetical account" of the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman according to Business Insider. O.J. Simpson: The Lost Confession? will air on Sunday, March 11th at 8 pm ET. 

The two-hour special will be hosted by Soledad O'Brien and air with limited interruptions according to IndieWire. Fox will also air public service announcements on domestic violence awareness during the show. 

The interview was canceled by Fox after it was revealed that Judith Regan paid Simpson $3.5 million for the sit-down, which was to be the basis for the controversial book If I Did ItAfter public outcry over the news that Regan paid Simpson, HarperCollins fired her, but the publisher went on to publish the book with the family of Ron Goldman. 

Fox was given permission by both the Goldman families and Simpson after the tape was "rediscovered sitting in a box on the Fox lot."

TMZ reports that O.J. speaks about an accomplice named "Charlie" who went with him to his ex-wife's house. O.J. claims he got into a brief argument with her and then blacked out, only to awake covered in blood. 

In a preview for the interview, O.J. talks "hypothetically" about the murder. He said he remembers picking up the knife and discusses the amount of blood on his clothes after stabbing Goldman and Brown Simpson.
