Marcia Clark The Fix/ Marcia Clark TV Show/ Marcia Clark Show
Marcia is the producer of The Fix which is a show based on O.J Simpson trial. The show is a ten episode series which follows Maya Travis, an L.A. district attorney who suffers a devastating defeat after prosecuting an A-list movie star for a double murder. Eight years later, when the same star is under suspicion for yet another homicide, Maya sees it as an opportunity for another chance at justice.
In the promo, Clark giggles a little and says ‘maybe’ suggesting that the movie show might be a ‘revenge fantasy’ for her.
Clark said: “It’s more a question of justice. “[The series is] not my revenge fantasy, it’s Maya’s. She really believes he’s guilty of at least the previous murders. So, yes, it’s a revenge fantasy, but it’s not mine. I don’t fantasize that way. Ever. At All.
All writers used their life experience to create characters and give them storylines. I don’t think you can have a good drama if there isn’t an authentic thread. I think audiences feel it when there isn’t.
This [series] is also about being a woman in what was perceived to be a man’s world. There’s an episode that [specifically] addresses that when Maya gets a nasty tabloid story written about her but her trial partner, who’s a man, doesn’t have to deal with that. It’s a universal issue for women.”
The show title has a double meaning with Clark explaining that “It refers to Maya’s desire to get justice, to fix the inability to get justice in the original case. It’s also from the defence point of view in that they think, ‘the fix is in,’ that [the prosecution] is going to frame the defendant this time to get him. Both sides think of this as The Fix.”
