This is going to be a good one…

Executive producer Ryan Murphy is currently working on one of the most anticipated TV dramas of 2018, Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story – and here’s your first look at the show.

Academy Award winner Penelope Cruz will take on the role of Donatella Versace, dressed in an electric pink gown with bright blonde hair and flanked by buff men for the first official image, which was revealed by Entertainment Weekly.

Penelope is part of an all-star cast for the miniseries, which will include Darren Criss as Andrew Cunanan, Edgar Ramirez as Gianni Versace, and Ricky Martin as Gianni’s partner Antonio D’Amico.

The show will centre around the 1997 murder of Gianni Versace by Andrew Cunanan, which then saw Donatella take over his fashion house.

Part of the show has been filmed at the Miami beach mansion Villa Casa Casuarina, where Gianni lived and was killed.

Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story follows the first series of the true crime anthology series, The People v. O. J. Simpson.

What’s more, another series is also in pre-production right now, which focusses on the events of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans back in 2005.

Annette Bening will play governor of Louisiana, Kathleen Blanco, while Matthew Broderick as Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Director Michael D. Brown, and Dennis Quaid will take on the role of President George W. Bush.
