Where is Monica Lewinsky? Ex-WH intern bags 20th TV deal after Bill Clinton docu
Monica Lewinsky has signed a production deal with 20th Television after they were impressed with her work on the 'American Crime Story' anthology series which focuses on the events that led to the impeachment of former president Bill Clinton.
Lewinsky served as a hands-on producer for the series' upcoming installment, 'Impeachment: American Crime Story'. She had a front seat view of the impeachment of the former president, while she worked as a White House intern between 1995 and 1996. The investigation ultimately led to Clinton admitting to having an affair with Lewinsky, which quickly escalated to becoming one of the biggest political scandals in the history of the United States.
"As our team has gotten to know Monica through her involvement with our upcoming edition of American Crime Story, we've been very impressed with her instincts as a producer, and her desire to bring provocative, untold stories to the screen," 20th TV president Karey Burke said in a statement. "She is formidable and passionate about the work, and we're hopeful this first-look deal leads to many successful projects together."
In the new season of the famous anthology series, Beanie Feldstein stars as Lewinsky, while Clive Owen will play Clinton. Edie Falco will portay then-first lady Hilary Clinton, and Sarah Paulson will star as Linda Tripp.
In her own statement, Lewinsky said, "I'm interested in storytelling that is entertaining, thought-provoking and emotion-stirring — that moves a conversation forward by exploring the human condition from an unexpected lens. That's what excites me about forming Alt Ending Productions and working with 20th Television. Having had my own story hijacked for many years, I'm very interested in the voices or perspectives we historically don't hear from or see. They're brimming with untapped potential." Lewinsky added that she looked forward "to working with and learning from visionary women like Karey Burke and Carolyn Cassidy and owe a special debt to Ryan Murphy for championing me as a producer".
Where is Monica Lewinsky now?
If anyone misses hearing from Lewinsky, all they have to do is visit her Twitter page. Despite being mocked and cyberbullied after the Clinton scandal broke, Lewinsky has managed to turn the most controversial events of her life into a joke and as Buzzfeed pointed out a few weeks ago, it's hilarious every time. Mostly she picks up on quirky tweets and retweets them with a caption that reflects her past, which normally leaves social media in splits.
For example, she reposted Uber Eats' tweet which said, "What's the most high-risk, low-reward thing you've ever done?" with googly eyes emoji. Or the time she responded to the question of the worst career advice she'd ever received, writing, "An internship at the white house will be amazing on your resume."

Apart from the funny retorts, she has also established a name for herself as a television personality and an activist. She subsequently engaged in a variety of ventures that included designing a line of handbags under her name and being an advertising spokesperson for a diet plan. In 2019, she was interviewed by John Oliver on his HBO show 'Last Week Tonight', where they discussed the importance of solving the problem of public shaming and how her situation may have been different if social media had existed in the late 1990s.
