Ryan Murphy‘s next edition of American Crime Story will be titled Impeachment and it will focus on the Clinton scandal.

Beanie Feldstein will star in the series as Monica Lewinsky and the real Lewinsky is producing the series with Ryan and his team.

Ryan had previous plans to do a series about the White House drama, but he scrapped the plans. He said last year, “I told her, ‘Nobody should tell your story but you, and it’s kind of gross if they do. If you want to produce it with me, I would love that; but you should be the producer and you should make all the goddamn money.’”

Sarah Paulson has joined the cast as White House employee Linda Tripp and Annaleigh Ashford will play former Arkansas state employee Paula Jones, who sued Clinton for sexual harassment.

“FX’s 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 Cunanan’s tragic crime spree which concluded with the assassination of Gianni Versace,” FX CEO John Landgraf said in a statement. “This 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.”

Impeachment will premiere on FX on Sunday, September 27, 2020 at 10pm. Start your countdown clocks!
