Ryan Murphy responds to criticism from Versace family

Orth, a celebrated journalist was working on an exposé for Vanity Fair on Cunanan and his previous murders just two days before Gianni became the serial killer's next victim. The Assassination of Gianni Versace will obviously cover a lot of real-life events and people.

The Spanish actress portrays the haute couture legend in Ryan Murphy's forthcoming TV series The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, which chronicles the 1997 murder of Donatella's brother in Miami.

U.S. channel FX, which airs the series, responded to the Versace family's first statement.

On Monday, they released a damning statement in response to the show. It seems that the family of Versace was hands-off for the entire process of the show coming together.

In fact, the Versace statement goes so far as to describe Murphy's show as "a work of fiction" as a result. "It's based on a very acclaimed nonfiction book called Vulgar Favors by Maureen Orth that has been vetted for nearly two decades".

Now artistic director and vice-president of the Milan-based Versace fashion group, Donatella said in an interview published by Italian daily la Repubblica on Wednesday that the series and a book it draws on contain gossip and contradictions.

The tragedy itself combined with the talented cast of The Assassination of Gianni Versace nearly certainly means that we're in for an intense ride with the show. Ricky Martin stars as Versace's partner, Antonio D'Amico.

Did you watch the first season of American Crime Story? O.J. Simpson was reportedly not a fan of how his story was told on the show; the Versace family may be on the very same page.

Producer Ryan Murphy has responded to the criticism from the Versace family after they referred to his anothology drama titled "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story" a work of fiction. I was amazed that so much more was able to be brought to the small screen.

"Like the original American Crime Story series The People Vs OJ Simpson which was based on Jeffrey Toobin's non-fiction bestseller The Run of His Life, FX's follow-up The Assassination Of Gianni Versace is based on Maureen Orth's heavily researched and authenticated non-fiction bestseller Vulgar Favors, which examined the true-life crime spree of Andrew Cunanan", it said. We stand by the meticulous reporting of Ms Orth.
