Just in time for the twentieth anniversary of the affair that led to the dismissal of Bill Clinton, a documentary is expected to reveal new interviews with the accusers and explosive material never before seen.
The three parts, six hours of docuseries from A & E and Alex Gibney & Jigsaw Productions will deepen the relationship of former White House Scholar Monica Lewinsky with the then president who led the conference, including new interviews with Lewinsky herself, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The documentary will also include footage never seen of Bill with Monica, and is still being produced with the provisional title of The Impeachment of Bill Clinton.
A & E vice president and programming director Elaine Frontain Bryant calls the miniseries "a real-life political thriller and the deepest and most intimate account of how one of the greatest scandals in our nation's history developed, forever changing the landscape of American politics."

Then and now: December 1998, Clinton addresses the nation about the bombings in Iraq and 20 years later, in 2018, at the So The World May Hear Awards Gala.
Lewinsky, whose world was riven by the only second accusation ever made by special investigator Kenneth Starr, has remained relatively silent on the subject that changed the entire trajectory of his life.
She wrote an article for Vanity Fair in light of the #MeToo movement that has revitalized the interest in her adventure as a White House intern with possibly the most powerful man in the world at that time.
Other accusers of Clinton are also interviewed in the series, including Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey and Juanita Broaddrick.
Broaddrick alleged that Clinton raped her in 1978.
THR reports that they have obtained an episode of the series that begins airing on November 18, in which Lewinsky exposes himself frankly when he is betrayed by his friend Linda Tripp, who secretly recorded her conversations.
Lewinsky, now 45, also spoke about being in love with Clinton and how his personal secretary, Betty Currie, would help organize their meetings.
Bill, Hillary and Linda Tripp (they left with their ex-friend Monica) did not give interviews for the series
She also talks about the infamous blue Gap dress she wore after a sexual encounter with Clinton and that she put it to dinner that night, where she says that none of her friends commented that she had "things" all over her dress.
The director of the series, Blair Foster, says that by the time the program opens, she would have conducted at least 60 interviews, including those of people close to the Clintons, such as lawyers Jane Sherburne and David Kendall.
Foster says that although it is unlikely that they will finally get Bill and Hillary to do an interview for the piece, "They are certainly aware of the project."
She also says that Tripp has rejected an interview request several times.
"My goal for this series was to do a deep dive into the facts and talk to as many people as possible," says Foster. "The deeper I became clear, the more it became that this series has as much to do with the present as it did with the 1990s."
