Impeachment: American Crime Story – Clive Owen’s Bill Clinton denies affair with Monica Lewinsky in first trailer

The first full-length trailer for Impeachment: American Crime Story has been released, teasing Clive Owen’s forthcoming performance as Bill Clinton.

For its third season, the FX anthology series is dramatising Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky, a former White House intern, and his subsequent impeachment in 1998. Lewinsky is portrayed by Beanie Feldstein.

The trailer, unveiled on Thursday (12 August), includes the show’s recreation of the then-president’s infamous denial of his affair with Lewinsky.

“I did not have sexual relations with that woman,” Owen’s Clinton says towards the end of the video. The scene is a recreation of a televised address given by Clinton on 26 January 1998, which includes the same sentence.

Clinton was eventually impeached by the House of Representatives on the grounds of perjury to a grand jury and obstruction of justice on 19 December 1998. The US Senate acquitted him in February 1999 and Clinton remained in office until the end of his second term as president, until January 2001.

Impeachment: American Crime Story will start airing on 7 September on FX in the US. A UK air date has yet to be announced, though the show’s first two seasons aired on BBC Two shortly after being broadcast in the US.

It will also star Sarah Paulson as Linda Tripp, Margo Martindale as Lucianne Goldberg, Billy Eichner as Matt Drudge, Edie Falco as Hillary Clinton, and Cobie Smulders as Ann Coulter.
