The 69-year-old is now serving 33 years behind bars for kidnapping, robbery and assault - but could be let out as early as October for good behaviour, just nine years into his sentence.

According to TMZ, unidentified producers expressed their interest in creating a Simpson reality show, but a few factors might place a halt on their plans.

Well, it looks like the disgraced athlete may be on TV again sooner that later, as he could be released from prison as early as October, and is already eyeing some opportunities in reality TV.

Reality TV production firms are reportedly eager to sign Simpson and produce shows such as a documentary and a televised interview featuring the former National Football League star.

"People could pay without being judged", one producer told TMZ.

The 69-year-old felon could be out of prison as early as October 1.

He was also found guilty of kidnapping and assault with a deadly weapon and imprisoned at Lovelock Correctional Centre, a medium-security facility in Nevada.

Simpson claimed the collectors had, in turn, stolen possessions of his.

American Crime Story: The People Vs OJ Simpson, a dramatisation of his 1994-1995 trial for the murders of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman (of which he was later acquitted), swept the board at the 2016 Emmys, taking home nine trophies from its 22 nominations.

Two years later, a civil court jury unanimously ruled he was liable for battery against Brown-Simpson and Goldman, as well as the wrongful death of Goldman.

A 2006 special called "If I Did It", where Simpson read a passage from a book he co-worte by the same title, was killed by Fox following public outcry.
