The American true-crime TV series on FX is pushing ahead its airdates, and we have different theories about the ‘why’s. Find out all about it here.
American Crime Story On FX
Developed by Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander, American Crime Story is an anthological crime drama on FX. The show is co-produced by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, the pair that has also created “American Horror Story”.
The first season of the show debuted on FX in 2016, followed by a second one in 2018.
Plotline Of the Show
The plotlines of the series each follow their own story based on a true crime event in America. The show is extensively watched and followed in America.
The first season of the show, titled THE PEOPLE v. O. J. SIMPSON follows the investigation of O. J. Simpson’s murder. The season is loosely adapted from Jeffrey Toobin’s book, “The Run Of His Life”.
The second season is titled THE ASSASSINATION OF GIANNI VERSACE. The series revolves around the sociopathic serial killer Andrew Cunanan, who killed five people in a span of three months in the 1970s. One of Cunanan’s victims is Gianni Versace, an established Italian Fashion Designer.
Impeachment: American Crime Story
The third season of the American Crime Story will be adapted from Toobin’s book “A Vast Conspiracy”.
Like the book, the series will be based on the infamous sex scandal of 1998 between President Bill Clinton and a much younger intern at the White House, Monica Lewinsky.
The Announced Airdates: What Went Wrong?
The show was initially announced to air before the Presidential elections in the US, that falls on November 3rd.
This was met with resistance and criticism, as it was expected to bias the citizens politically when they had to make an essential. The FX team made no comments about it, nor did they respond.
However, a while ago, the network announced that Impeachment would not be airing anytime soon. No specific mentions of the Election Day were made, but the message was pretty clear.
FX’s Explanation Behind Making The Changes
John Landgraf, the chairman of FX, clarified that the change of dates had nothing to do with the elections, but was a result of Director Murphy’s busy schedule.
Well, whatever’s true, we’re going to have to wait for a long time before Impeachment starts streaming.
