The Assassination of Gianni Versace covers the before, during, and after of Gianni Versace’s murder by spree killer Andrew Cunanan on the steps of Versace’s South Beach residence back in 1997. The case itself is famous and the show doesn’t dance around delivering the ugly deed. While the big death happens relatively early on, Versace’s end is only the starting point for the way the show is telling this story. Andrew Cunanan (Darren Criss) targets world-renowned fashion designer Gianni Versace (Edgar Ramirez) at his home, and his death shocks the world. Gianni’s sister Donatella (the magnificent Penelope Cruz) and partner Antonio D’Amico (Ricky Martin) occupy important parts in Versace’s life before and after his death, but they’re not always on the same page.
