A new full-length trailer has arrived for Ryan Murphy’s latest season of American Crime Story: Impeachment.
Impeachment will be the third season of the series following The People v O.J. Simpson and The Assassination of Gianni Versace. Impeachment is set to chronicle the Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky sex scandal based on Jeffrey Toobin’s book A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President.
The trailer focuses on the friendship and eventual betrayal between Monica Lewinsky played by Beanie Feldstein and Linda Tripp (Sarah Paulson). The latter becomes a friend for Lewinsky to confide in regarding her secret affair with Bill Clinton (Clive Owen) but trust is soon shattered.
Watch the trailer below.
The third season of American Crime Story: Impeachment is set to premiere September 7th. The show also stars Edie Falco as Hillary Clinton, Billy Eichner as Matt Drudge, Cobie Smulders as Ann Coulter and more.
Meanwhile, the real Monica Lewinsky was a consultant on the show. In an interview, Beanie Feldstein said that she had a say in “every word” and “every script page”.
Feldstein revealed: “I felt gutted by some of the things that Monica went through. My task is to be Monica’s bodyguard — to put my body in front of hers. It’s my job to portray her pain, because I feel so much for her.”
