Singer Ricky Martin and Glee’s Darren Criss will also star in the series.

The Ryan Murphy production filmed at the Versace’s actual mansion.

His killer was Andrew Cunanan, a 27-year-old college dropout. He was a murderer who killed multiple people in a span of states from Minnesota to Illinois to New Jersey in 1997.

The Italian designer was gunned down outside his home after he returned from getting a cup of coffee. Cunanan was found a few days later, inside a fancy Miami houseboat. He took his own life as the police were storming in to arrest him.
