“The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” set a new bar for true crime drama on television, and took home some Emmy awards and a Golden Globe in the process. Now, creator Ryan Murphy and his team are back for a whole new season, and a whole new crime.
“The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” brings together a heckuva lead quartet — Edgar Ramirez, Darren Criss, Ricky Martin (yes, the singer) and Penelope Cruz — for the story of Andrew Phillip Cunanan, an American serial killer who murdered at least five people, including fashion designer Gianni Versace on the steps of his Miami Beach mansion, during a three-month period in 1997. It’s all here — garish fashion, big acting, a compelling story — and we’re absolutely ready for every minute.
“The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” hits FX on January 17th.
