FX’s award-winning and critically acclaimed hit limited series franchise American Crime Story will return next year with its third instalment, Impeachment: American Crime Story and will be shown on BBC Two.
Written by Sarah Burgess, Impeachment: American Crime Story unravels the national scandal that swept up Paula Jones, Monica Lewinsky and Linda Tripp as principal characters in the country’s first impeachment proceedings in over a century.
The series features a stellar cast starring Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Sarah Paulson as Linda Tripp, Beanie Feldstein as Monica Lewinsky, and Annaleigh Ashford as Paula Jones.
The news comes as the Head of BBC Two spoke at this year’s Edinburgh TV Festival also announcing new documentary Inside The Parole Board – a four-part series that will follow the complex and emotionally-fraught decision-making process that determines which criminals are safe to walk free – and which will remain behind bars. Filmed over a year with parole board panels from across Britain, the series will follow complex cases of serious crime, shining a light on the level of expertise and scrutiny that informs every single decision made. The series will include voices of the people whose lives are most deeply affected by parole decisions; prisoners whose future hangs in the balance; and victims who want to see justice served. This series will tackle the fundamental questions underlying the British justice system, around crime, punishment, reform, repentance and morality. He also announced All that Glitters – a six-part contest is built on the extraordinary skills of eight talented jewellers from all walks of life and an as-yet-untitled new comedy from Sara Pascoe.
