The show-runner, Ryan Murphy, has obtained rights to Jeffrey Toobin’s book ‘A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President’ and is looking to turn it into a future season, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
It is believed that producers are already meeting with actresses to portray Lewinsky and her colleague Linda Tripp, who secretly recorded Lewsinky’s conversations about her affair with President Bill Clinton.
The White House intern claimed to have had intimate relations with Clinton between November 1995 and March 1997.
No doubt the season will explore all sides to the scandal and its repercussions which resulted in the impeachment of President Clinton and his subsequent acquittal.
