The Impeachment of Bill Clinton is produced by Alex Gibney’s Jigsaw Productions along with Emmy-winning director Blair Foster.

“A real-life political thriller, The Impeachment of Bill Clinton is the most in-depth and intimate account of how one of the biggest scandals in our nation’s history unfolded, forever changing the landscape of American politics,” said Elaine Frontain Bryant, executive vice president & head of programming for A&E in a statement. “Alex, Blair and the rest of our incredible creative team masterfully take viewers through the events that divided the nation, while exploring the deeper conversations that resulted from them about sexism, harassment and public shaming that the country still wrestles with today.”
