First trailer for 'The Assassination of Gianni Versace' is here

Following last year's award-winning series The People v. O.J. Simpson, American Crime Story is all set to hit the small screen again with another instalment - The Assassination of Gianni Versace. "There was this great apathy about it", Murphy continued about Gianni's murder, "and I think part of that was because it seemed like gay people were disposable in our culture". Penelope Cruz and Ricky Martin are also shown as Versace's sister, Donatella Versace, and partner, Antonio D'Amico. Later he would kill himself as well.

From just over a minute of footage in the trailer, it's hard to tell if The Assassination of Gianni Versace will follow in that same initial blueprint, but it already looks like an intriguing blend of glitz and gore.

Ryan Murphy, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Brad Falchuk, Alexis Martin Woodall, Dan Minahan, Tom Rob Smith, Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski are executive producers of the series. "Yet this world also made you, Versace, into a star". Darren Criss does impress in his scenes as an overwrought psychopath, but Versace seems like it could be in danger of veering too close to camp if this first trailer is anything to go by. Is this a reason to be wary or a reason to be excited since we'll be getting something completely different?

In the trailer for the second instalment of American Crime Story, Donatella Versace is seen saying, "Everything you see around us - this house, this company - was his life".
