There was a period last year where I could not stop recommending American Crime Story: The people vs OJ to everyone. I badgered friends, I reminded family, there was probably a point where I was recommending it to actual strangers as a must watch. So when I heard the follow-up was going to be American Crime Story: Hurricane Katrina, I was not quite on board. Ryan Murphy is so hit and miss with sensitive topics (see: Glee, Popular, American Horror Story).
The producers must have heard the collective hesitation and have agreed to shelve it for American Crime Story: Versace. That is so much more up Ryan Murphy’s alley – glitzy, glossy, trashy storytelling.
Please behold this glorious cover. Feast your eyes on this.
Yes, that’s Penelope Cruz as Donatella. She doesn’t really look anything like her, young Donatella looked a lot like Lady GaGa….but it’s television. We’ll cut them some slack.
Ricky Martin’s robe is perfectly placed. That is all.
Did I ever mention that I saw Darren Criss as Hedwig in Hedwig and the Angry Inch? I love him so much. He has that intense serial killer thing happening for this role, a far cry from wholesome, dancing Blaine. In case I forget to mention it, those are some perfect 90s glasses.
The show is slated to come out in 2019, which is more than 6 months away. That’s just mean.
