Another sensational murder case is getting the American Crime Story treatment.

As first reported by Deadline, the third season of Ryan Murphy’s Emmy-winning anthology will center on the July 1997 assassination of legendary designer Gianni Versace on the steps of his Miami Beach mansion by serial killer Andrew Cunanan. One week later, Cunanan would take his own life.
