FX has officially set its next chapter of AMERICAN CRIME STORY.

IMPEACHMENT: AMERICAN CRIME STORY will premiere Sunday, September 27, 2020 at 10/9c. Per FX, the installment, written by Sarah Burgess, “unravels the national scandal that swept up Paula Jones, Monica Lewinsky and Linda Tripp as principal characters in the country’s first impeachment proceedings in over a century.” Sarah Paulson has been cast as Linda Tripp, Beanie Feldstein will play Monica Lewinsky, and Annaleigh Ashford will portray Paula Jones. Monica Lewinsky will serve as a producer.

“FX’s AMERICAN CRIME STORY franchise has become a cultural touchstone, providing greater context for stories that deserve greater understanding like the O.J. Simpson trial and saga, and Andrew Cunanan’s tragic crime spree which concluded with the assassination of Gianni Versace,” said John Landgraf, Chairman, FX Networks and FX Productions, in a statement. “This franchise re-examines some of the most complicated, polarizing stories in recent history in a way that is relevant, nuanced and entertaining.

“IMPEACHMENT: AMERICAN CRIME STORY will likewise explore 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. We are grateful to Sarah Burgess for her brilliant adaptation, as well as Ryan Murphy, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Brad Falchuk, Larry Karaszewski, Scott Alexander, Alexis Martin Woodall, Sarah Paulson and the rest of the creative team and cast.”

The series, which is based on Jeffrey Toobin’s “A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President,” will go into production in February.
