FX Responds to Versace Family's Thoughts on 'American Crime Story' Series

FX has released a statement in response to the Versace family’s criticism of the network’s upcoming Ryan Murphy series, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.

The family behind the fashion house said that the show was made without its blessing and fans should consider it to be a “work of fiction.”

FX stands behind the series and the source material the producers used to create it.

“Like the original American Crime Story series The People vs. OJ Simpson, which was based on Jeffrey Toobin‘s nonfiction bestseller ‘The Run of His Life,’” the network said in its statement (via THR), “FX’s follow-up The Assassination Of Gianni Versace is based on Maureen Orth‘s heavily researched and authenticated nonfiction best-seller ‘Vulgar Favors,’ which examined the true life crime spree of Andrew Cunanan. We stand by the meticulous reporting of Ms. Orth.”

Versace – starring Edgar Ramirez, Penelope Cruz, Darren Criss, and Ricky Martin – premieres on FX on January 17.

Ryan Murphy Reveals How His Son's Medical Emergency Inspired '9-1-1' Series

Ryan Murphy is opening up about how a medical emergency that his infant son had inspired his new show 9-1-1.

The television producer appeared on the Fox panel at the 2018 Winter TCA Tour on Thursday afternoon (January 4) at The Langham Huntington in Pasadena, Calif.

Ryan was joined by the show’s stars Angela Bassett, Connie Britton, Peter Krause, Aisha Hinds, Oliver Stark, and Rockmond Dunbar, along with co-creators Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear, executive producer Alexis Martin Woodall, and director Bradley Buecker.

“It was a really traumatic experience. I had a newborn baby. My son Ford was 11 months old and in the middle of the night stopped breathing,” Ryan said (via People). “We called 911. Obviously we were in panic and we were doing CPR and they showed up at 2 a.m. in the morning. There were 4 responders. They were incredibly calm and nurturing. They forced me to leave the room. They brought him back to life.”

“They only allowed one parent to ride with the child in the ambulance, so my husband David went and I stayed with our other one upstairs. The officers and responders stayed to get a report from me I had the experience if sitting with them and talking to them. They really kind of talked me off the ledge,” he added.

Get ready for a new Ryan Murphy series to enjoy!

The American Horror Story writer’s latest series, a dance musical co-starring Evan Peters, Kate Mara and James Van Der Beek, was ordered for eight episodes to make up its first season, according to Deadline.

Pose explores the juxtaposition of several segments of life in New York in the 1980s: the rise of the luxury Trump-era universe, the downtown social and literary scene and the ball culture world.

The show has already made history by featuring the largest transgender series regular cast, as well as the largest LGBTQ cast ever for a scripted series.

“I am thrilled to join forces with John Landgraf and FX Networks and FXP and Dana Walden, Gary Newman and Fox 21 Television Studios to present what I think is a game changer of a show, which at its heart is an uplifting series about the universal quest for identity, family and respect,” said Ryan.

“Along with being a dance musical and an affirming look at American life in the 1980s, I’m so proud that Pose and FX has made history right from the beginning by featuring the most trans series regular actors ever in an American television production. Additionally, the first season Pose will feature 50-plus LGBTQ characters – a record in American television history. I can’t wait for people to see this incredibly talented, passionate cast.”

The show is scheduled to begin production in February 2018 in New York, and expected to premiere later in the summer on FX.
