This next iteration of the FX franchise will focus on the impeachment scandal that surrounded Clinton during his Presidency due to his affair with Monica Lewinsky (Booksmart‘s Beanie Feldstein). Hillary Clinton has not yet been cast in the project, adapted by writer Sarah Burgess from the Jeffrey Toobin 1999 book, A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President.
