Monica Lewinsky has high hopes for new Bill Clinton impeachment drama

Monica Lewinsky signed on to produce a new TV drama about her and President Bill Clinton in the hope it would end 20 years of gossip and rumors.

Clinton was impeached in 1998 after it became clear he had romanced Lewinsky during his presidential run, and she became one of the most divisive characters in American political history.

Monica retreated from the public eye and has spent the two decades since the scandal trying to get her life, career and reputation back on track.

And she hopes Ryan Murphy’s new American Crime Story series, which will revolve around the Clinton impeachment trial, will end 20 years of hell.

“I was hesitant, and truthfully more than a little scared to sign on,” she tells Vanity Fair, “but after a lengthy dinner meeting with Ryan, I came to understand even more clearly how dedicated he is to giving a voice to the marginalized in all of his brilliant work. I’m privileged to work with him and the other talented people on the team, and I’m privileged to have this opportunity.

“People have been co-opting and telling my part in this story for decades. In fact, it wasn’t until the past few years that I’ve been able to fully reclaim my narrative; almost 20 years later… (This) allows people like me who have been historically silenced to finally reintroduce my voice to the conversation.”

The series, which will feature Sarah Paulson as Linda Tripp, and Beanie Feldstein as Lewinsky, will mark Monica’s debut as a producer of a scripted TV project.

The series is scheduled to debut a month before the 2020 elections.
