The third season of American Crime Story will be dedicated to the murder of the legendary fashion designer Gianni Versace. Channel FX extended anthology series of Ryan Murphy for a third season, without waiting for the release of the season number two, dedicated to the consequences of Hurricane Katrina.
The third season was named Versace/Cunanan: American Crime Story. In the scrupulous manner peculiar to the series, authors reconstruct the events of July 1997, when Gianni Versace was shot in his mansion in Miami Beach. The murderer was Andrew Cunanan, earning with homosexual prostitution and drug trafficking. Within a short period of time from April to July 1997, he killed five people. The motives of these crimes have not been established. Cunanan shot himself in his hotel room eight days after Versace’s murder, when he was surrounded by police.
The script is based on the book Vulgar Favors by Maureen Orth. Playwright will be done by the novelist and screenwriter Tom Rob Smith (The Number 44, The London Spy).
The premiere of the 10-series of the third season declared for 2018.
As we found out, the FX leadership did not plan to force things and to issue contracts for the third season so early, but after reading the first script drafts by Smith, they gave the green light to start the season. We also learned that the producers have already started to look for an actress for the role of sister of fashion designer Donatella Versace. It is planned to recruit someone from Hollywood superstars of higher echelon.
The second segment of the show, called Katrina, will be released early next year. In it you will learn about the events of 2005 in New Orleans after a disaster, which destroyed the city and claimed the lives of 1836 people.
American Crime Story was launched in February this year with the chapter The People vs. O.J. Simpson about one of the most controversial trials in American history. Nominated in the category mini-series, the show was honored with nine Emmy awards.
