Default ACC to tackle Bill Clinton's impeachment with Monica Lewinsky as producer

https://tvline.com/2019/08/06/americ...nica-lewinsky/

The Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky scandal will be the subject of FX's Impeachment: American Crime Story, starring Booksmart's Beanie Feldstein as Lewinsky, Sarah Paulson as Linda Tripp and Annaleigh Ashford as Paula Jones. Lewinsky will serve as a producer on the third American Crime Story series. Impeachment: American Crime Story will be written by Sarah Burgess based on Jeffrey Toobin's bestselling book A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President. Paulson and Ashford are American Crime Story veterans, with Paulson winning an Emmy for playing Marcia Clark on The People v. O. J. Simpson and Ashford playing Elizabeth Cote on The Assassination of Gianni Versace. ďFXís American Crime Story franchise has become a cultural touchstone, providing greater context for stories that deserve greater understanding like the O.J. Simpson trial and saga, and Andrew Cunananís tragic crime spree which concluded with the assassination of Gianni Versace,Ē FX Chairman John Landgraf said in a statement. ďThis franchise re-examines some of the most complicated, polarizing stories in recent history in a way that is relevant, nuanced and entertaining. Impeachment: American Crime Story will likewise explore the overlooked dimensions of the women who found themselves caught up in the scandal and political war that cast a long shadow over the Clinton Presidency.Ē Production will begin in February 2020 with a scheduled premiere date of Sept. 27, 2020.

ALSO:
  • FX chairman John Landgraf defends airing Impeachment: American Crime Story near the 2020 presidential election: "The idea that we canít have art, we canít have nuance is toxic in the media environment," Landgraf said at the TV press tour. "I believe very, very strongly in the art weíre making. I donít think Crime Story is going to decide the next presidential election. I think thatís a little hysterical from my standpoint. Iím insistent that Iím going to support artists and make great art and put it in the time and place where people are going to watch it."

Monica Lewinsky on producing Impeachment: American Crime Story: "I’m privileged to have this opportunity"

"I was hesitant, and truthfully more than a little scared to sign on," Lewinsky wrote in an email to Vanity Fair following FX's announcement that she would serve as a producer on Season 3 of American Crime Story, focusing on her scandal with Bill Clinton. "But after a lengthy dinner meeting with Ryan (Murphy), I came to understand even more clearly how dedicated he is to giving a voice to the marginalized in all of his brilliant work. I’m privileged to work with him and the other talented people on the team, and I’m privileged to have this opportunity. People have been co-opting and telling my part in this story for decades. In fact, it wasn’t until the past few years that I’ve been able to fully reclaim my narrative; almost 20 years later. But I’m so grateful for the growth we’ve made as a society that allows people like me who have been historically silenced to finally reintroduce my voice to the conversation."

Hillary Clinton won't be a significant character on FX's Impeachment: American Crime Story

"Hillary is actually not a significant character in Impeachment because it's really told from the point of view of these women who were really far from the center of power," FX CEO John Landgraf tells The Hollywood Reporter of the Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky scandal season of American Crime Story. "It's really a revisionist history as told through the point of view of these women whose stories did not seem in any way central to the political stakes of what was going on but who became really central to that. Hillary is a character in it, but she's not one of the main characters in it."
