The first teaser for American Crime Story: Impeachment has been released and gives us our first glimpse at the latest season of the true-crime drama.
The third season of the anthology series follows the events that led to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton in 1998. Benny Feldstein plays White House intern Monica Lewinsky, while Clive Owen plays Clinton. Sarah Paulson, Margo Martindale, Colin Hanks, Betty Gilpin and Billy Eichner also star. The show, executive produced by Ryan Murphy, is based on the book Giant Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal That Near Britted Down a President by Jeffrey Tobin.
The minute teaser doesn’t reveal anything special, but it certainly got us interested. It opens in Washington DC in 1995, when 22-year-old Lewinsky first began working at the White House. We see Feldstein boxing a gift for Clinton—a tie, also in a gift box with an envelope addressed to “Bill”—and walk from the Guild Hall of the White House to Clinton’s office.
Season 2 of American Crime Story, titled The Assassination of Gianni Versace, aired in 2018, and centered around (you guessed it) the murder of the fashion mogul. The first season, which followed the trial of OJ Simpson, was also based on a book by Tobin, The Run of His Life: The People v. OJ Simpson. John Travolta, Sterling K. Each season boasts its own star-studded cast, including actors such as Brown, Edgar Ramirez, and Penelope Cruz.
