American Crime Story season two and three themes revealed

The themes for the second and third season of American Crime Story have been unveiled. 

The show premiered earlier this year with The People v. O. J. Simpson, a lavish drama that focused on the trial of american footballer O. J. Simpson with a cast that included Cuba Gooding Jnr, John Travolta, David Schwimmer and Sarah Paulson. 

Work on the second season of the drama will begin early next year and will focus on the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, using Douglas Brinkley’s book, The Great Deluge: Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans, and the Mississippi Gulf Coast, as the main source material. It will simply be titled American Crime Story: Katrina

Now, according to Deadline, details of the third season have been unveiled. The show's third outing will be titled Versace/Cunanan and will focus on the 1997 assassination of legendary designer Gianni Versace on the steps of his Miami Beach mansion by serial killer Andrew Cunanan, who eight days later killed himself in a house boat as the Miami Dade police force moved in to capture him. 

The series will be based on Vanity Fair writer Maureen Orth's book Vulgar Favours, with Tom Rob Smith, writer and creator of London Spy, booked to script the first two episodes. 

Both season two and three of the series will film almost simultaneously.
