The miniseries, the third installment in Ryan Murphy’s anthology, was originally slated to premiere last September but was delayed due to a combination of Murphy’s schedule and the coronavirus pandemic.

Lewinsky is co-producing the miniseries, which is expected to premiere later in the year. It is based on Jeffrey Toobin’s book “A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President.”

Toobin’s book “The Run of His Life” previously served as the basis for the series’ first season, a dramatization of the O.J. Simpson murder trial.
