The best thing about John Travolta is that he commits to his performances. Whether he’s a Brooklyn disco fiend, or leaning in to the campiness as O.J. Simpson’s lawyer, or a woman married to Christopher Walken, he’s sincere even when he’s over the top.
FX bosses have made clear that American Crime Story would plumb a broader criminal focus than The People v. O.J. Simpson, noting early on that Hurricane Katrina would form Season 2's main story.

FX and Ryan Murphy’s incoming American Crime Story: The People v. O.J.
