The first pictures from The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story are here, and they are as over-the-top as we expected. EW released the first-look photographs, which include glamour shots of the main cast members. 

Edgar Ramirez will appear as Gianni Versace, Penelope Cruz as Donatella Versace, Darren Criss as serial killer Andrew Cunanan, and Ricky Martin as Versace's longtime partner Antonio D'Amico. New Girl's Max Greenfield will also make an appearance, but his role is unknown as of now. 

You can scroll through all of the gaudy pics below, including one of Martin like you've never seen him before. He's livin la vida loca in a white robe with Greek motifs and not much else. 

In each American Crime Story season, executive producer Ryan Murphy will focus on a different true crime. This is the second season following the successful The People v. O. J. Simpson

Adapted from the true crime book Vulgar Favors by Maureen Orth, the Versace story chronicles the designer's murder in 1997. Cunanan shot Versace on the steps of his Miami Beach house after killing at least four other people. He shot himself a little more than a week after Versace's death. 

The Assassination of Gianni Versace will likely premiere early 2018.
