Monica Lewinksy produced the third season of "American Crime Story" centered on the scandals leading up to former President Bill Clinton’s impeachment hearings in the 90s — and it is set to air in the final weeks of the 2020 presidential campaign.
FX made the announcement on Tuesday, the Hollywood Reporter reported.
Lewinsky infamously had an affair with Clinton while she was a White House intern. She will be played by actress Beanie Feldstein, the younger sister of Jonah Hill known for her parts in "Lady Bird" and "Booksmart."
FX chairman John Landgraf responded at a Television Critics Association summer press tour conference Tuesday to questions over whether the timing of the third season’s release could potentially affect the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, the Washington Examiner reported.
