See Beanie Feldstein’s Spine-Tingly Perfect Portrayal Of Monica Lewinsky In ‘American Crime Story’

Lewinsky herself is an executive producer.

Fans of Beanie Feldstein and American Crime Story behold, the first trailer at the third instalment of the cult series is here, and it’s every bit as perfect as we hoped.

The third season titled Impeachment centres around the infamous impeachment trial of Bill Clinton following his affair with Monica Lewinsky, who was then a 22-year-old White House intern. 

In August, the first official series poster dropped, featuring 28-year-old Feldstein standing before the White House. 

In case you hadn’t already got goosebumps from that striking first image, series distributors FX have now shared a full trailer—it looks every bit as gripping as the real life case which was avidly watched by the world back in the 1990s. 

To make things all the more accurate, Lewinsky herself is an executive producer on the series. Creator Ryan Murphy revealed how that came about, telling The Hollywood Reporter: “I told her, ‘Nobody should tell your story but you… 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’.”

Here, we break down everything to know about the new series, including its star-studded cast, release date and trailer.
