Can it match the success of ‘The People v. OJ Simpson’?
It looks like we may have another viral miniseries on the horizon.
After the success of 2016’s The People v. OJ Simpson, FX’s popular American Crime Story series is back exploring a new high-profile case this season: the murder of fashion legend Gianni Versace. The trailer premiered during this week’s finale of the network’s other big anthology drama, American Horror Story: Cult, and there’s no shortage of promising details.
Darren Criss as a normcore, BDSM-loving, FBI’s Ten Most Wanted fugitive? Check.
Penelope Cruz in a Donatella Versace wig, announcing, “I will not allow that man—that nobody—to kill my brother twice”? Check.
Ricky Martin… acting? Check.
The season will follow the events leading up to Versace’s 1997 shooting death outside his Miami villa at the hands of serial killer Andrew Cunanan. Cunanan went on to kill himself about a week later as the FBI closed in on him.
FX has high expectations to meet after People v. O.J. Simpson—the miniseries scored record ratings for the network and scooped up nine Emmys (including Outstanding Limited Series)—but from the trailer, this season seems up to the task.
Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story premieres Jan. 17.
