The first look teaser for American Crime Story: Impeachment has been revealed, showing President Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky coming face to face.
The trailer opens in Washington, D.C. in 1995, focusing on the scandal that rocked the Clinton administration.
The series is set recount the story of the relationship between the President and Monica, who was an 22-year-old intern at the White House at the time.
The new clip follows Monica, played by Booksmart star Beanie Feldstein, walking through the grand halls of the Whitehouse before entering the Oval Office.
‘Mr. President,’ the President’s secretary says, before adding: ‘Ms. Lewinsky’s here to see you.’
The new season is based on the events covered in Jeffrey Toobin’s 1999 book A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President.

The show is being produced by Monica herself, with Clive Owen cast as President Bill Clinton, Edie Falco as Hillary Clinton and Sarah Paulson as prominent American civil servant Linda Tripp.
Linda is a former friend of Monica’s who secretly recorded confidential conversations they shared. The tapes were later used as evidence in the trial, with Bill eventually being impeached as president in December 1998.
Sarah previously shared a first look of Sarah in character as Linda, showing her wearing a voluminous blonde wig, retro glasses and a grey, checkered top – and fans could not believe the transformation.
She wrote at the time: ‘Linda. American Crime Story: Impeachment has begun principal photography,’ also tagging Ryan in the post.
Impeachment also stars Margo Martindale, Anthony Green, Betty Gilpin, Colin Hanks and more.
The series is set to debut on FX in the US on September 7. A UK release date for American Crime Story: Impeachment has yet to be confirmed.
It comes after the previous two seasons of the anthology true crime series explored the case of OJ Simpson and the assassination of Gianni Versace.
