When can UK fans expect Impeach: American Crime Story?

If Impeachment does come to the UK, it's likely that TV fans won't have to wait long. The first season, which focused on the 1994 trial of OJ Simpson after he was arrested and charged for murder following the death of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and their neighbour, Ron Goldman, aired on the BBC in the same month it was released in America.

Season two focused on the shooting of fashion designer Gianni Versace, who was killed by Andrew Cunanan in Miami in 1997. The Assassination of Gianni Versace aired on BBC a month after it premiered in America – so it's looking positive for an autumn release of series three in the UK.

Who stars in Impeachment: American Crime Story?

Impeachment has a stellar cast and, judging by the trailer, looks like a fascinating watch. Starring as Monica is Booksmart actress Beanie Feldstein while Clive Owen plays the former president. Sarah Paulson also stars, taking on the role of Lewinsky's close confidante, Linda Tripp, while The Sopranos star Edie Flaco plays Hillary Clinton.

Monica Lewinsky herself played a big part in the production of the TV series and served as executive producer. Ryan Murphy, who almost pulled the plug on the project, insisted Monica be involved in the re-telling of her own story.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, he told Monica: "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."
