A&E NETWORK TO PREMIERE DEFINITIVE DOCUMENTARY SERIES "THE IMPEACHMENT OF BILL CLINTON" (working title) FROM AWARD-WINNING PRODUCER ALEX GIBNEY AND DIRECTOR BLAIR FOSTER

THREE-NIGHT SPECIAL EVENT BEGINS SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 18 FEATURING EXCLUSIVE IN-DEPTH INTERVIEWS FROM THOSE CLOSEST TO THE IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS INCLUDING MONICA LEWINSKY, KEN STARR AND JAMES CARVILLE

New York, NY - September 5, 2018 - Coinciding with the 20th anniversary of the impeachment proceedings of former President Bill Clinton, A&E Network will premiere the comprehensive six-part documentary series "The Impeachment of Bill Clinton" (w.t.) from Academy Award(R) and Emmy(R)-winning producer Alex Gibney's Jigsaw Productions and Emmy(R)-winning director Blair Foster. Weaving together never-before-seen archival footage with exclusive new interviews, the series examines the biggest political scandal of a generation and its lasting influence and reverberations on our country. Exploring broader topics including media, feminism, politics and power, the documentary investigates the history leading up to the impeachment trial and chronicles the role each of these forces played in this story of sex, power, money, lies and ideological warfare.

Beginning Sunday, November 18 from 9-11pm ET/PT, the limited documentary event unfolds over three consecutive nights and traces the twisted, intertwined series of events that led to the impeachment trial that set the nation on the path towards a more staunchly partisan political system. The series features arresting archival footage as well as comprehensive interviews with the people closest to the events including a timely, in-depth reflection on the topic with Monica Lewinsky.

"A real-life political thriller, 'The Impeachment of Bill Clinton' is the most in-depth and intimate account of how one of the biggest scandals in our nation's history unfolded, forever changing the landscape of American politics," said Elaine Frontain Bryant, Executive Vice President & Head of Programming, A&E. "Alex, Blair and the rest of our incredible creative team masterfully take viewers through the events that divided the nation, while exploring the deeper conversations that resulted from them about sexism, harassment and public shaming that the country still wrestles with today."

"I thought I knew a lot about President Clinton's impeachment because I lived through it. However, when I began this project, I quickly realized much of what I thought I knew was incomplete, or worse, inaccurate," comments series director Blair Foster. "My goal for this series was to do a deep dive into the facts and speak to as many people as possible who were involved. The deeper I got the clearer it became that this series is as much about the present day as it is about the 1990s. To borrow a phrase from Barbara Tuchman, this series serves as a 'distant mirror' on our current political situation and is far more timely than I ever anticipated."

"Blair has done magnificent work with this mini-series. She takes a story we thought we all knew and shows it to us in an entirely new light," adds executive producer Alex Gibney. "Through the testimony of an extraordinary number of key participants, Blair illuminates the origins of today's political chicanery and tribalism, the media madness of scandal and the way that individuals - with all their messy, contradictory and deeply human motivations - are sacrificed at the altar of power and ambition."
