Ryan Murphy, creator of American Horror Story, Glee, and American Crime Story has taken on some testy subjects in his past television series.
The previous two seasons of ACS covered gruesome murders, and the upcoming season signals a shift to something more political, just in time for the 2020 election. The third season will be called "Impeachment" and cover the Bill Clinton–Monica Lewinsky scandal leading up to the former president's ultimate decline from power.
Booksmart star Beanie Feldstein has been chosen to take on the role of Lewinsky, who will be producing the season alongside Sarah Paulson.
Murphy's second season covering the murder of Gianni Versace received wide critical acclaim and earned Darren Criss an Emmy for Best Lead Actor. If this upcoming season does just as well, Feldstein could be on her way to earning her own prestigious award, too.
