Grande hot coffee for Monica? That’s how the trailer for FX‘s new trailer for Impeachment: American Crime Story begins, and as we all know, it’s downhill from there. The first trailer for Ryan Murphy‘s limited series was unveiled today, giving us a new look at the mega-producer’s take on Monica Lewinsky, Linda Tripp, and the Clinton couple.
The saga, which marks the third installment in Murphy’s American Crime Story anthology, will follow the whole sex scandal between 22-year-old intern Lewinsky and Bill Clinton, with Beanie Feldstein and Clive Owen set to star as the respective political figures. Impeachment will follow national crisis that turned Lewinsky, Paula Jones, and Linda Tripp into “principal characters in the country’s first impeachment proceedings in over a century,” per FX’s logline.
“The president kissed me,” Monica fretfully whispers in the trailer.
“Tell me everything,” Linda responds, marking the beginning of a wild ride through American history.
The teaser offers just a taste of the recorded conversations that nearly ended former President Clinton’s administration. From questions about Lewinsky and Clinton’s relationship to the infamous stained blue dress, the clip readies audiences for the exploration into one of the United States Government’s most controversial incidents.
Sarah Paulson and Annaleigh Ashford will star as Tripp and Jones, joined by Edie Falco as Hillary Clinton. Other cast members include Billy Eichner as Drudge Report founder Matt Drudge and Cobie Smulders replacing Betty Gilpin as conservative pundit Ann Coulter.
Season 3 of American Crime Story is based on Jeffrey Toobin’s novel A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President. Mike Uppendahl is directing and executive producing the project, with Murphy, Paulson, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Brad Falchuk, Larry karaszewski, Scott Alexander, and Alexis Martin Woodall also set as EPs. Sarah Burgess has penned the script.
Scroll up to watch the first trailer for Impeachment: American Crime Story, which will premiere on FX on September 7 at 10/9c.
