FX+ subscribers will have early access to the first episode of Ryan Murphy's The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.

The eagerly anticipated follow-up to the award-winning, The People vs OJ Simpson, will explore the death of Versace at the hands of spree killer Andrew Cunanan, who also murdered four people before Versace, and committed suicide eight days after Versace's death. "The only difference is that you got lucky". Elsewhere, Ricky Martin will play Gianni's lover Antonio D'Amico, while Penélope Cruz will take on fashion giant Donatella Versace.

The footage picks up where the previously released teaser trailer left off, following Cunanan fleeing from where he had just shot and killed Gianni Versace, played by Edgar Ramirez. "I will not let that man, that nobody... kill my brother twice".

Gianni Versace was murdered by Andrew Cunanan in 1997 at the doorsteps of his Villa Casa Casuarina in Florida. Later he would kill himself as well. "Everything you see around us, this house, this company, was his life", she says in the trailer.

Series creators Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski will not be returning for the second season.

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story will premiere on FX on Wednesday, January 17, at 10 PM ET/PT. It will be followed by Katrina: American Crime Story.
