TV viewers are eagerly anticipating the second season of “American Crime Story”, focusing on the murder of fashion designer Gianni Versace, and on Tuesday night FX unveiled the first full trailer for “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”.
“Everything you see around us — this house, this company — was his life. I will not allow that man, that nobody, to kill my brother twice,” says Donatella Versace (played by Penelope Cruz) of the late designer (Edgar Ramirez) in the trailer, which also reveals the premiere date.
The true crime series chronicles the series of events leading up to the murder of Versace by Andrew Cunanan (Darren Criss of “Glee”) and the killer’s subsequent suicide a week later as police were closing in on him.
The cast also includes Ricky Martin, with the pop star making his acting debut in the role of Versace’s boyfriend, Antonio D’Amico.
“The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” premieres on Wednesday, January 17.
