Lewinsky was hesitant to be part of the series initially but after having a series of meeting with American Crime Story creator, Ryan Murphy she was confident enough to give her voice after 20 years.
In a statement to Vanity Fair, Lewinsky strongly condemned the manipulative power of the hierarchies, “Powerful people, often men, take advantage of those subordinate to them in myriad ways all the time,” she continued. “Many people will see this as such a story, and for that reason, this narrative is one that is, regretfully, evergreen.”
The series has been adapted from Jeffrey Toobin’s 1999 book "A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President" and is set to premiere around September 2020.
American Crime Story is a critically acclaimed series which focuses on the landmark events of recent US history.
