FX Networks dropped an official trailer for Impeachment: American Crime Story, which chronicles the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal. The third season of the FX anthology series is based on former New Yorker staff writer Jeffrey Toobin’s best-selling book, “A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President”, and starring Clive Owen as Bill Clinton and “Booksmart “ star Beanie Feldstein as Monica Lewinsky.
‘Impeachment: American Crime Story’ is a limited series examining the national crisis that led to the first impeachment of a U.S. President in over a century. It tells this story through the eyes of the women at the center of the events: Monica Lewinsky (Beanie Feldstein), Linda Tripp (Sarah Paulson) and Paula Jones (Annaleigh Ashford). All three were thrust into the public spotlight during a time of corrosive partisan rancor, shifting sexual politics and a changing media landscape. The series shows how power lifts some and disposes of others in the halls of our most sacred institutions.
The series, which will premiere on September 7 on FX, also stars Edie Falco as Hillary Clinton. Impeachment: American Crime Story is executive produced by Ryan Murphy, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Alexis Martin Woodall, Sarah Burgess, Sarah Paulson, Brad Falchuk, Scott Alexander, Larry Karaszewski, and Michael Uppendahl. The series is produced by 20th Television and FX Productions.
