“Everything you see around us — this house, this company — was his life. I will not allow that man, that nobody, to kill my brother twice.”
Let’s kick off your Wednesday with a look at The Assassination of Gianni Versace Trailer, the second series of the so-far-so-brilliant ‘American Crime Story’ saga that began with ‘The People Vs O.J. Simpson’, which was nominated for countless awards winning no less than 9 Emmys, in 2016.

This time, the action is relocated to Miami in the 1990s, and stars Darren Criss, Edgar Ramirez, Penelope Cruz (as Donatella Versace, who is quoted above), and Ricky Martin. Ryan Murphy, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Brad Falchuk and Tom Rob Smith are executive producers with Murphy directing the first episode from a script by Tom Rob Smith.
Deadline has the full synopsis:
The story follows Andrew Cunanan (Darren Criss), a prolific liar and boaster who sold his body to older men and also was involved in petty crimes and drugs. In April 1997, he began a cross-country killing spree that claimed four lives and landed him on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List. But his murderous ways weren’t done: On July 15 that year, he shot and killed Versace (Edgar Ramirez) on the steps of the iconic fashion designer’s Miami villa. Cunanan would kill himself about a week later as police closed in on him.
The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story will premiere on FX on Wednesday, January 17, at 10 PM ET/PT. No news of a UK debut as yet, but the first season of the drama was screened on terrestrial television (BBC 2) shortly after its Stateside debut. We’ll keep you posted on any further news in regards to that.
