Monica Lewinsky will produce a major true crime series about impeachment proceedings against former US president Bill Clinton set to air just weeks before the 2020 election, the FX network said Tuesday.
The third season of the American Crime Story franchise will dramatize events that saw White House intern Lewinsky and two other women become “swept up … in the country’s first impeachment proceedings in over a century,” FX said in a statement.
It follows the network’s first two seasons of ACS, which dealt with the trial of O.J. Simpson and the murder of Gianni Versace, respectively, and together earned a bevy of awards—and considerable controversy.
The first two installments won a total of 16 Emmys. Production on season three starts in February.
