The Assassination of Gianni Versace

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story airs Wednesdays at 10:00 p.m. on FX.

The American Crime Story series seemed to be an odd decision at first, as there are entire networks dedicated to true crime dramas, so the success of the first season is good for the future of the series - especially now that we know what it will entail. "Maybe it's the director's poetic license, but that is not how I reacted".

The show goes on to show the investigation into Versace's murder as well as flashbacks into what drove Cunanan to kill.

Criss, as well as executive producers Maureen Orth (who wrote the book that inspired the limited series) and Tom Rob Smith share more about American Crime Story: Versace.

San Diego killer featured in new TV series

A new television show featuring one of San Diego's most infamous killers airs this week. He committed suicide, aged 27, a few days after assassinating 50-year-old Versace. The crime took place outside his home in Miami Beach.

Storming on three quarters of the way in as Donatella Versace - Gianni's beloved sister and heir - Penélope Cruz adds to the excess with a performance as filthily ridiculous as her dirty blonde wig.

"If somebody was going to do it, she was really happy that it was me, because I think she knows what I feel for her", she told U.S. chat show host Ellen DeGeneres. "It's important for me that when she sees what I've done, she can feel the love and respect that I have put there", she said.
