Gianni Versace was murdered by Andrew Cunanan in 1997 at the doorsteps of his Villa Casa Casuarina in Florida. Cunanan would kill himself about a week later as police closed in on him. "Everything you see around us, this house, this company, was his life", she says in the trailer. The series is said to open with the designer's murder and work backward to establish his lavish lifestyle as well as Cuanan's own life and motives for murder.
Based on the book by Maureen Orth, the series stars Darren Criss as Cunanan, with Ricky Martin as Gianni Versace's partner Antonio D'Amico. It will be followed by Katrina: American Crime Story.
