The Clinton impeachment scandal just got queer, reports The Advocate.

Not only is super-producer Ryan Murphy executive producing the new season of American Crime Story, which will be called Impeachment: American Crime Story, but out actresses Sarah Paulson and Beanie Feldstein are starring, it was announced at the FX Television Critics Association event in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Booksmart and Lady Bird star Feldstein will play Monica Lewinsky in the series that Lewinsky is co-producing about her relationship with President Bill Clinton when she was a White House intern and the impeachment proceedings that followed once it became public. Paulson, an alumna of many Murphy projects, will play Linda Tripp, an associate of Lewinsky’s who began recording their conversations once the former intern had revealed that she’d had a physical relationship with Clinton.
