Grammy winner Ricky Martin has joined the third season of FX’s “American Crime Story” anthology series from Ryan Murphy.
The story will explore the July 1997 assassination of legendary designer Gianni Versace (Edgar Ramirez). His killer, Andrew Cunanan (Darren Criss), committed suicide eight days later as Miami Dade police were on the verge of capturing the serial killer behind five slayings.
Penelope Cruz stars as Donatella Versace, Gianni’s sister who took over the company following his death. Martin will take on the role of Antonio D’Amico, Gianni’s longtime partner who had a shaky relationship with his family.
Production begins this month on the ten-episode third season of the series which will debut in 2018. The second season, ‘Katrina’ is also debuting in early 2018. Ryan Murphy, Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson are executive producing.
