[ # ] American Crime Story: Gianni Versace bumps Katrina
June 13th, 2017 under American Horror Story

American Crime Story: The People v OJ Simpson was an awards darling, so FX rushed not one but two editions of the limited series. First they ordered a season based on the fall out of Katrina in New Orleans and then they ordered one on the shocking murder of fashion icon Gianni Versace.

Both seasons have star studded casts in Annette Benning, Matthew Broderick, Penelope Cruz, Ricky Martin and many more, which makes it seem like they would want to rush both to air. They are not. In fact, they are currently shooting Versace which was supposed to air after Katrina, but the latter has not began filming. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that for Katrina they need more time to create the special water effects so they can recreate the deadly hurricane and its aftermath. Plus, when you have a cast like that, it is hard syncing their acting schedules. Due to all that, that edition will not air until the end of next year and Versace will air the beginning of 2018.

Personally, I never got why they are doing Katrina in the first place because it just does not seem the fit their theme. Versace does because it is about the murder and then the search for his killer. Which makes me think that Katrina might not make it to air if it does not get its act together soon. Especially, since there are so many other crime stories they can do that will keep up enthralled like they did with OJ. Imagine of they did the Manson murders or Patty Hearst’s kidnapping, The Preppy Killer and so many more. Which crime story do you want them tackle next? Do you want to see Katrina happen?
