A new trailer was released on Friday for the “Impeachment: American Crime Story” series which will soon air on FX.

The minute and 46 second clip opens with Linda Tripp (Sarah Paulson) telling Monica Lewinsky (Beanie Feldstein) that she is a “knockout” and needs to date someone “important” in Washington, DC

Lewinsky smiled, blushing.

“Uh …” she said.

Tripp then sets the “record” on infamous tapes after revealing she found herself in “possession of very sensitive information” – but is informed that she may need more proof.

Quick shots of scandal unfolding in crescendo until Lewinsky answers ringing phone, greeting then President Clinton (Clive Owen) with “Hi, handsome.”

A previous trailer released a week ago showed a White House staff member advising new interns to “please be professional” and Tripp was shocked as he watched the president on television testify that he “Did not have sexual relations with this woman”.

The show is the third iteration of FX’s “American Crime Story” series, following “The People v. OJ Simpson” and “The Assassination of Gianni Versace”.

The limited series covering the scandal and subsequent impeachment that rocked Clinton’s presidency begins on September 7.
