THE ASSASSINATION OF GIANNI VERSACE: AMERICAN CRIME STORY
Airs: Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on FX
After tackling the O.J. Simpson murder trial, producer Ryan Murphy’s true-crime series returns with a dramatization of the death of famed fashion designer Gianni Versace (Edgar Ramírez) at the hands of serial killer Andrew Cunanan (Glee’s Darren Criss). “You feel a much bigger responsibility when you are playing a real person,” says Penélope Cruz, who plays Versace’s sister. “Donatella suffered the terrible loss of her brother—but she found the strength to keep his company moving forward. I’m sure that was incredibly difficult.”
Airs: Starting March 27 on ABC
Roseanne Barr has changed a bit since she last played blue-collar mom Roseanne Conner. “I’m a lot older and have grandkids,” the star says of her quiet life on a macadamia-nut farm in Hawaii since her iconic sitcom went off the air in 1997 after nine seasons. But now Barr, 65, and the rest of her TV family are back with an eight-episode revival, also starring Sara Gilbert and John Goodman.
