Stream FX Limited Series?

Of all Ryan MurphyTV franchise, American crime is by far the most prestigious. After winning 16 Emmys in total for its first two installments, the FX limited series is now returning to capture one of the most infamous moments in 20th century American history – though it may not be one you think of as a crime.

Lawsuit, developed for television by playwright Sarah Burgess and offers Monica Lewinsky as a consultant / executive producer, traces the events leading up to President Bill Clinton’s trial in December 1998. The cast returns Place of crime alumni like Sarah Paulson as Linda Tripp, Judith Light as Susan Carpenter-McMillan and Annaleigh Ashford as Paula Jones, along with a close-knit collection of all-stars inclusive Margo Martindale, Billy Eichner, Taran Killem, Cobie Smulders, Colin Hanks, Mira Sorvino, Elizabeth Reaser, Fred Melamed, Kathleen Turner, and Blair Underwood, with Beanie Feldstein as Monica Lewinsky, Clive Owen as Bill Clinton, and Edie Falco as Hillary Clinton.

What is Impeachment: American Crime Story About?

Despite what the title might mean, Lawsuit is only partly about the fact that the political conspiracies behind Clinton were accused by Congress of being under oath. It really focuses on the friendship between Monica Lewinsky and Linda Tripp. Here is FX’s official plot description:

Impeachment: American Crime Story investigates the national crisis that led to the first indictment of a U.S. president in over a century. It tells this story with the eyes of the women at the center of the events: Monica Lewinsky (Beanie Feldstein), Linda Tripp (Sarah Paulson) and Paula Jones (Annaleigh Ashford). All three were pushed into the public spotlight at a time of corrosive partisan arias, changing sexual policies and a changing media landscape. The series shows how power lifts some and disposes of others in the halls of our most sacred institutions.

The episode is executive produced by Ryan Murphy, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Alexis Martin Woodall, Sarah Burgess, Sarah Paulson, Brad Falchuk, Scott Alexander, Larry Karaszewski and Michael Uppendahl. The series is produced by 20th Television and FX Productions.

As I wrote in my review before the show’s premiere:

How you end up feeling about the show will probably have a lot to do with how much you remember about the scandal; as with most stories based on recent events, there is a generational aspect to the baggage most of us carry with us to this story. It is almost impossible to write about the show as a narrative separate from its historical context; so much of what led to the ouster of Bill Clinton in 1998 was instrumental in creating the state of the nation as we know it today. It’s something that Lawsuit feels aware of the weight of what may seem like ordinary events, although at this point it feels difficult to say how successful the show has been in communicating this concept.

You can decide for yourself how you feel Lawsuit when the show premieres Tuesday, September 7th. In the meantime, you can watch the trailer below:
