The TV movie will chronicle the designer's sudden fame after her brother Gianni Versace's 1997 slaying. The film also stars Enrico Colatoni as Gianni, Raquel Welch as their Aunt Lucia and Colm Feore as their brother, Santo.
Based on Deborah Ball's House of Versace: The Untold Story of Genius, Murder and Survival, the TV movie will focus on Donatella's inspiring comeback from drug addiction and near-bankruptcy to become the fashion icon she and the brand are today.
House of Versace will premiere Saturday, Oct. 5 at 8/7c and will be followed by the hour-long documentary Versace: Beyond the Headlines at 10/9c.
