Originally published on Dark Horizons by Garth Franklin

FX has premiered the poster for “American Crime Story: Impeachment” – the third season of Ryan Murphy’s anthology drama following 2016’s “The People vs. O.J. Simpson” and 2018’s “The Assassination of Gianni Versace”.

This instalment stars Sarah Paulson as Linda Tripp, Beanie Feldstein as Monica Lewinsky and Annaleigh Ashford as Paula Jones in this take on the sex scandal involving Lewinsky and U.S. President Bill Clinton (Clive Owen). Also onboard are Edie Falco as Hilary Clinton, Margo Martindale as Lucianne Goldberg and Billy Eichner as Matt Drudge.

The real Lewinsky, hesitant at first to sign on, became involved with every script. FX CEO John Landgraf has previously said the show will highlight: “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.”

Playwright Sarah Burgess is adapting the scripts for the series based on Jeffrey Toobin’s book “A Vast Conspiracy”. The ten-episode run kicks off on September 7th.
