A new TV project focusing on the impeachment of President Bill Clinton is set to premiere Nov. 18 on A&E. The six-part documentary series, which has the working title “The Impeachment of Bill Clinton,” will air over three consecutive nights, the network announced today.
The project comes from Academy Award and Emmy-winning producer Alex Gibney’s Jigsaw Productions and Emmy-winning director Blair Foster.
“Weaving together never-before-seen archival footage with exclusive new interviews, the series examines the biggest political scandal of a generation and its lasting influence and reverberations on our country,” A&E says in its announcement. “Exploring broader topics including media, feminism, politics and power, the documentary investigates the history leading up to the impeachment trial and chronicles the role each of these forces played in this story of sex, power, money, lies and ideological warfare.”
