What’s On: A Not-So-Random Killing on ‘American Crime Story,’ ‘grown-ish,’ ‘Waco’

A selective critical checklist of notable Wednesday TV:

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story (10/9c, FX): As this chilling docudrama tracks back in time to reveal the extent of Andrew Cunanan’s (Darren Criss) crimes, the setting moves to Chicago, with stellar guest performances by Judith Light and Mike Farrell as Marilyn and Lee Miglin. She’s a cosmetics maven with a home-shopping TV high profile and a “perfect husband” in Lee, a well-connected real-estate tycoon who’s also a closeted gay of a certain age, making him vulnerable to the narcissistic and murderous predations of Cunanan. The authorities initially declare this incident a “random killing,” though it will soon put Cunanan on the FBI’s “10 Most Wanted” fugitive list.

‘Assassination of Gianni Versace’ Fact vs. Fiction: What ‘American Crime Story’ Season 2 Got Right

The People v. OJ Simpson fans hoping for another compelling retelling of a high-profile ‘90s with The Assassination of Gianni Versace weren’t disappointed, if the enthusiastic live-tweeting is to be believed.

The second season of American Crime Story, Ryan Murphy’s true crime anthology series, didn’t waste any time with its Wednesday night premiere: Serial killer Andrew Cunanan (Darren Criss) shoots down the 50-year-old the Italian fashion designer Gianni Versace (Édgar Ramírez) in the first eight minutes. The rest of the “The Man Who Would Be Vogue” (written by Tom Rob Smith and directed by Murphy), shifts between the ensuing police chase and flashbacks to an encounter Cunanan had with Versace seven years prior. The episode introduces Gianni’s devoted younger sister, Donatella (Penélope Cruz), who will inherit the business, and his longtime boyfriend, Antonio D’Amico (Ricky Martin).

Younger viewers may not recall the details of this infamous murder, or,

‘American Crime Story’ takes on murder of Versace

In the spring and summer of 1997, before everyone used Google to find whatever they wanted, before everyone used Facebook to creep on old crushes, before cell phones were in everyone’s pocket, recording every bit of life around them — before cell phones were cameras that could make phone calls — the nation was gripped by a cross-country manhunt.

The suspect: a serial killer who had struck in Minnesota, Chicago and New Jersey. The motive: unclear; the victims had no apparent connection. The method: bludgeoning, shooting, stabbing — brutal deaths that kept investigators of the FBI and local authorities guessing until clues linked the killings to Andrew Cunanan, a college dropout with no discernible job except cruising gay bars, occasionally selling drugs, and striking up relationships with rich, older men and spending their money.

In May 1997, Cunanan was added to the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list — certainly a level of

Why “American Crime Story” took on murder and manhunt in “The Assassination of Gianni Versace”

The latest iteration of FX and Ryan Murphy’s anthology drama “American Crime Story” differs in a dramatic way from its predecessor, “The People v. O.J. Simpson.”

This time, we see the murder.

Murphy calls “The Assassination of Gianni Versace” a “manhunt thriller.”

The iconic fashion designer was gunned down in front of his mansion in Miami’s South Beach neighborhood in 1997 by 27-year-old Andrew Cunanan. Described at the time as a “gigolo” by Martha Orth, whose book the series is based on, Cunanan had already been on a killing spree that landed him on the FBI’s most-wanted list.

Since Cunanan would take his own life before authorities were able to arrest him, “ACS” tries to examine why Versace became a target. Murphy insists the term “assassination” is accurate, although some would label Cunanan a psychopath and serial killer.

“’Assassination’ has a political overtone, and I think it denotes somebody who is taking the life of
