Versace's Murder Highlighted in Season Two of American Crime Story
Jan 13, 2018, 06:49
On Monday (07Jan18), the Versace family distanced themselves from the program, describing it as unauthorized, but Edgar is standing by the content.
Although Orth declined to comment directly on the Versace statement, she emphatically covered precisely the same territory when speaking with Still Watching on Wednesday morning. The first episode begins with Versace's murder, and the rest of the season mostly works backward, tracking Cunanan as he targets his previous victims, while spending significantly less time on Versace's professional and personal life.
The show tells the story of the murder of Gianni Versace (played by Édgar Ramirez), the Italian designer and founder of the House of Versace. "We stand by the meticulous reporting of Ms. Orth", they said.
"I hope it strikes a chord with a lot of people".
The statement questions Orth's information gathering tactics, specifically regarding the attainment of Gianni's postmortem medical records. "It's based on a very acclaimed nonfiction book called Vulgar Favors by Maureen Orth that has been vetted for nearly two decades". "In making her lurid claims, she ignores contrary information provided by members of Mr. Versace's family, who lived and worked closely with him and were in the best position to know the facts of his life". "Instead, in her effort to create a sensational story, she presents second-hand hearsay that is full of contradictions".
The second season of Ryan Murphy's anthology series, which premieres January 17, examines the death of the famed Italian fashion designer - but his family wants viewers to know that the series "should only be considered a work of fiction", adding that much of the story has been sensationalized and is based on "second-hand hearsay". "Gianni Versace was a courageous and honest man, who engaged in humanitarian work for the benefit of others".
Interestingly, the statement was quite clear that the Versace family was not connected to either the show's adaptation of events or the book upon which parts of the season will be based. And while the title name-checks Versace, the show itself-following Orth's lead-is more focused on the mentality of his assassin: serial killer Andrew Cunanan, played by Glee alum Darren Criss.
The show's executive producer Brad Simpson shed some light on the situation at last night's premiere, explaining to Variety: "This isn't authorized, and we don't make any pretense at it being authorized". She's an incredibly respected journalist.
