The Bill Clinton sex scandal will be the subject of a new TV drama series entitled Impeachment: American Crime Story, which will air before the 2020 election.

The story focuses on Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky, a former White House intern, and the impeachment proceedings which followed.

In an interesting twist of events, Lewinsky is a producer on the series.

She has described her involvement as an opportunity to "reclaim my narrative", despite initial hesitation.

She added that her story is an example of how "powerful people, often men, take advantage of those subordinate to them in myriad ways all the time."

Jennifer Gannon and Alison Healy discussed this in our TV slot.

They also talked about the American TV adaptation of Four Weddings and a Funeral, which has been slated by critics, and Netflix's cancellation of The OA.
