La un an si jumatate dupa finalul celui de-al doilea sezon al seriei tip antologie creat de Ryan Murphy, FX a anuntat titlul si distributia urmatorului sezon al American Crime StoryImpeachment: American Crime Story le va avea in rolurile principale pe Sarah Paulson, Beanie Feldstein si Annaleigh Ashford, in timp ce Sarah Burgess va scrie scenariul.

Bazat pe bestseller-ul scris de Jeffrey Toobin, A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President, noul sezon va prezenta celebrul scandal in care au fost implicati Monica Lewinsky si Bill Clinton, fostul Presedinte al Americii. Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story) va fi Linda Tripp, Beanie Feldstein (Booksmart) o va interpreta pe Lewinsky, iar Annaleigh Ashford (Masters of Sex) o va juca pe Paula Jones. Serialul va fi produs chiar de Monica Lewinsky.

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,'” a declarat Ryan Murphy pentru The Hollywood Reporter in aprilie 2018.

Ryan Murphy, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Brad Falchuk, Larry Karaszewski, Scott Alexander, Alexis Martin Woodall si Sarah Paulson vor fi producatorii executivi ai serialului, alaturi de Sarah Burgess. Filmarile vor incepe in februarie 2019, noul sezon debutand duminica, 27 septembrie 2020, pe FX.

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. 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,” a declarat John Landgraf, CEO-ul postului de televiziune FX.
