Murphy: Donatella Won’t Like Everything

A report from THR: ‘The latest version of American Crime Story will be told in reverse. Ryan Murphy, joined by much of his anthology‘s new cast Wednesday evening for the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour, said that the first episode of FX’s The Assassination of Gianni Versace will begin with the titular murder and then show how it came to be. The feelings of the Versace family, particularly sister and fashion house heir Donatella, were a frequent topic of the panel. And Murphy did not mince words, saying, “The Versaces will like some of what they see, and some of it they will be uncomfortable with.” (The uncomfortable part, as one reporter pointed out, was the depiction of Versace as being HIV-positive, something detailed in Orth’s book but never confirmed by the family.)’
