Sarah Paulson Says Playing Linda Tripp Is 'More Complicated Than Anything Else' She's Ever Done

Paulson, who is also executive producing the highly anticipated series, admitted that getting into the character of Tripp was "more complicated than anything else [she's] ever done."

It will primarily follow the perspectives of Lewinsky, Tripp, and Paula Jones, who sued Clinton for sexual harassment.

Clinton was impeached by the House of Representatives on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice for the Lewinsky affair in December 1998, but acquitted by the Senate in February 1999.

Paulson noted that Lewinsky, who is also a producer on the series, is "sanctioning everything" and is "around a lot" to help with the show, which is based on Jeffrey Toobin ’s book A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President.

Written by Sarah Burgess, the show will explore “the overlooked dimensions of women who found themselves caught up in the scandal and political war that cast a long shadow over the Clinton Presidency,” FX previously said.

Burgess will also executive produce the show alongside Ryan Murphy , Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Brad Falchuck, Larry Karaszewski, Scott Alexander, Alexi Martin Woodall, and Paulson.
