FX’s Wednesday-night second installment of the AMERICAN CRIME STORY anthology drama series, THE ASSASSINATION OF GIANNI VERSACE, deals not only with the well-known event of the title, but of the murder spree that led up to it.

In addition to the four TCA and two AFI Awards, we broke out own basic cable record with fifty-six Emmy Awards.” Landgraf credits Variety reporter Maureen Ryan with, in November, writing […]Read On »
