The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story Review: FX’s True Crime Drama Is Addictive And Unsettling

The Assassination of Gianni Versace covers the before, during, and after of Gianni Versace’s murder by spree killer Andrew Cunanan on the steps of Versace’s South Beach residence back in 1997. The case itself is famous and the show doesn’t dance around delivering the ugly deed. While the big death happens relatively early on, Versace’s end is only the starting point for the way the show is telling this story. Andrew Cunanan (Darren Criss) targets world-renowned fashion designer Gianni Versace (Edgar Ramirez) at his home, and his death shocks the world. Gianni’s sister Donatella (the magnificent Penelope Cruz) and partner Antonio D’Amico (Ricky Martin) occupy important parts in Versace’s life before and after his death, but they’re not always on the same page.

American Crime Story’s Versace season is far more about the murderer than the murdered

The most important word in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story isn’t “Versace.” It’s “assassination.” That’s going to throw some people, but I think it’s key to why the new FX miniseries works at all.

Assassination is the follow-up to 2016’s massively acclaimed, heavily viewed The People v. O.J. Simpson, which won nine Emmys and was nominated for even more. It was a smartly conceived look at an event in American history that had been written off as tawdry tabloid fodder, but one that nevertheless spoke to conversations we’re still having in America about race, class, gender, and power. And yet it was also a lot of fun, if you didn’t want to dive any deeper than wondering what the hell John Travolta’s performance was supposed to be about.

Assassination is … not that. It’s a grim tragedy whose structure moves backward

Darren Criss on Hanging Out with Ricky Martin for Versace Crime …

Darren Criss didn’t get to spend too much onscreen time with his American Crime Story costars — but they more than made up for it when the cameras weren’t rolling.

During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday, Criss opened up about shooting the upcoming FX series, The Assassination of Gianni Versace, which chronicles the 1997 murder of the Italian designer outside his Miami Beach home at the hands of Andrew Cunanan, played by Criss.

“He was a spree killer, a very troubled young man who does not follow the typical prerequisites of a killer,” said Criss, 30, of Cunanan. “He didn’t kill small animals as a child, or have a history of violence. Such is the exploration of our show — how a kid with so much promise becomes somebody so destructive.”

Asked if he had “fun” playing the killer, Criss said, “I don’t

Ryan Murphy deflects Versace family’s ‘American Crime Story’ criticism

Ryan Murphy has responded to the Versace family calling his anthology drama “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” a work of fiction, by saying he doesn’t believe that to be true.

“We issued a statement saying that this story is based on Maureen Orth’s book, which is a very celebrated, lauded work of non-fiction that was vetted now for close to 20 years,” Murphy told Variety at the premiere event for the FX anthology drama in Los Angeles. “That’s really all I have to say about it, other than of course I feel if you’re family is ever portrayed in something, it’s natural to sort of have a ‘Well, let’s wait and see what happens’ [stance].”

Murphy also pointed out that on Sunday Donatella Versace, the fashion icon’s sister and vice president and chief designer of the Versace Group, made

Here’s When LEGION, ATLANTA, AMERICAN CRIME STORY and More Will Premiere

It’s a good time to be a TV fan. The landscape of television has been evolving at an unprecedented rate over the past decade, and where there once was a formal TV season from fall to spring, there is now a year-round slate of new and prestigious series for fans to enjoy no matter what month it is. But that also means that some series can have upwards of a year-long break in between seasons, making the wait for new episodes even more torturous. Thankfully FX has just announced the premiere dates for some of their most popular returning dramas and highly-anticipated new series, so your wait just got a little more tolerable. But only a tiny bit.

Announced during the 2018 Winter Television Critics Association press tour by FX boss John Landgraf, Nerdist rounded up all the new FX premiere dates below in one handy place:

This first look at "American Crime Story: Versace" will have you thinking of the famous murder for weeks

All true crime junkies and Ryan Murphy fans have been looking forward to American Crime Story Season 2 since it was announced — and now, we have a new look at the season!

The first season of American Crime Story covered the infamous O.J. Simpson case, and the second will follow in its footsteps with the similarly fascinating, controversial, and political case of Gianni Versace’s murder. Versace was murdered by Andrew Cunanan, a spree killer who took the lives of at least nine people, and whose streak was only ended when he committed suicide — not because he was caught by the FBI. So there’s a whole lot going on with this guy, and we’re excited to see what the show does with the material.

Bonus — this first look doesn’t just give us a glimpse at what the season will look like — it also gives us some
