Based on Peter Baker's New York Times bestseller, "The Breach: Inside the Impeachment and Trial of William Jefferson Clinton," the series will be executive produced and directed by Emmy Award(R) winner R.J. Cutler and is from FremantleMedia North America in association with A+E Studios. Casting is currently underway. A political thriller, "The Breach: Inside the Impeachment of Bill Clinton" is an intimate, riveting depiction of how one of the nation's biggest political scandals unfolded - from the revelation that President Clinton was having an affair with Monica Lewinsky, through the political combat that saw Hillary Clinton, Newt Gingrich, Prosecutor Ken Starr, Congressman Bob Livingston and many others dominating the national headlines. "The Breach: Inside the Impeachment of Bill Clinton" is a day-by-day, and sometimes hour-by-hour, account of one of the most politically charged chapters in American political history. For the first time, viewers will be taken inside Republican and Democrat war rooms, revealing the infighting among the President's advisors, the secret back-channel negotiations between the White House and Congress, Tom DeLay's strategy to force President Clinton out of office, and the Democrats' pressure for Clinton to resign. The aftershocks of this scandal still reverberate through the government and the world to this day.
