News of the project broke last month, shortly after the first instalment of Ryan Murphy's anthology, American Crime Story, The People v. O.J. Simpson, finished airing. Following the major success of the first program (for which the executive producing team all won Emmy Awards), the next two are said to have been fast-tracked. Before the Versace-focused drama for season three, season two will focus on the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
Gaga has already won plaudits for her acting. She starred in Murphy's American Horror Story series last year, which won her a Golden Globe, and has been chosen by Bradley Cooper to star in his remake of A Star Is Born. Before then, however, she is lined up to take to the stage at Victoria's Secret at the end of this month, and take the coveted headline spot at the 2017 Super Bowl.
The third series will be a 10-episode depiction of the events of July 15 1997, based on Maureen Orth’s book Vulgar Favours, reports Dazed, when the Italian fashion designer was shot dead on the steps of his Miami Beach mansion by Andrew Cunanan, who killed himself a week later.
