As previously announced, Versace is switching seasons with Katrina: American Crime Story, which was originally announced for the second season. Katrina stars Dennis Quaid (Frequency) as U.S. President George W. Bush and Annette Bening (American Beauty) as Kathleen Blanco, governor of Louisiana both during and after the hurricane’s destructive path. Production on Katrina is expected to begin in early 2018. The Monica Lewinsky scandal is also being considered as a subject for a future season of American Crime Story, though no timetable has been set by either Murphy or FX.
