One of the better crime anthology series out there is Ryan Murphy’s American Crime Story. The second series – The Assassination Of Gianni Versace – won our best crime drama of the year in 2018.
We know that the next instalment will focus on the Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky affair, and is titled Impeachment: American Crime Story.
Now we know who’s going to play Hilary Clinton.
Sopranos actress, Edie Falco is set to play the embattled former First Lady, with Clive Owen playing husband Bill. Elsewhere, Beanie Feldstein plays Lewinsky, Sarah Paulson is playing Linda Tripp, Annaleigh Ashford is Paula Jones, and Billy Eichner is journalist Matt Drudge.
Based on Jeffrey Toobin’s book A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President, production on the series was halted last year because of the pandemic. However, reports suggest it’s back on track and will air on US network FX in the autumn. This means that there’s an outside chance it will appear on UK broadcaster – BBC Two – before the year is out.
