History network has greenlighted a six-part series from Emmy winner RJ Cutler titled "The Breach: Inside the Impeachment of Bill Clinton". According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series is described as a "political thriller" that offers an extremely detailed account of how the Monica Lewinsky scandal unfolded. The project is based on Peter Baker's New York Times best-seller "The Breach: Inside the Impeachment and Trial of William Jefferson Clinton". Cutler has penned the pilot with David K Israel and will executive produce alongside A+E Studios' Barry Jossen.
Casting is currently underway. In addition to Clinton himself, other major players in the historic 1998 events include then-first lady Hillary Clinton, Republican politician Newt Gingrich, prosecutor Ken Starr and congressman Bob Livingston, among others.
