The Clinton-Lewinsky scandal is coming back to television - not as a news story but as a film story.
HBO has bought the rights to JEFFREY TOOBIN's excellent book A VAST CONSPIRACY: THE REAL STORY OF THE SEX SCANDAL THAT NEARLY BROUGHT DOWN A PRESIDENT, about the behind-the-scenes details of the scandal that led to President Clinton's impeachment.
The HBO movie, A VAST CONSPIRACY, will be produced by Spring Creek Prods. PETER GOULD is on board to write the script and Spring Creek's president Paula Weinstein is executive producing. No actresses have been cast for the key roles of White House intern MONICA LEWINSKY or LINDA TRIPP, the woman who callously betrayed her by illegally ting her phone calls and then arranging for them to be handed to Independent Counsel KENNETH W. STARR.
