What makes the news about this new season more exciting is that Lewinsky herself has signed on as a producer. Lewinsky now has the chance to share her story and reclaim the narrative.
Speaking on the project Lewinsky said, “I was hesitant and truthfully more than a little scared to sign on. But after a lengthy dinner meeting with Ryan, I came to understand even more clearly how dedicated he is to giving a voice to the marginalized in all of his brilliant work. I’m privileged to work with him and the other talented people on the team, and I’m privileged to have this opportunity.”
Creator Ryan Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter, "I told [Monica Lewinsky], 'Nobody should tell your story but you, and it's kind of gross if they do. If you want to produce it with me, I would love that; but you should be the producer and you should make all the goddamn money.”
American Crime Story season 3 will premiere September 27, 2020, at 10 P.M. EST, less than two months before the 2020 presidential election.
