Fox News has announced Scandalous, a new documentary-style series that will premiere this Sunday, January 21. The series will focus on the scandals that surrounded President Bill Clinton that culminated in his impeachment and have seven one-hour episodes.
A Fox News source told TKNN that the plan is for Scandalous to become a franchise for the channel, focusing on various scandals in history. The show launched with Clinton because of the 20 year anniversary of the Lewinsky scandal breaking and his subsequent impeachment. The series had been in the works since prior to the 2016 election.
The series interviews more than forty-five people on both sides of the scandals. Among those interviewed are former Independent Counsels Kenneth Starr, Robert Fiske Jr., and Robert Ray. Bob Bittman, Sol Wisenberg, Julie Myers Wood, and Stephen Bates, who all worked for the special counsel, were also interviewed. Former Senator Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) will give their accounts as well. Two individuals involved with the actual scandals –Linda Tripp and Susan McDougal– were also interviewed for the series.
In addition to the interviews, the series will incorporate archival footage and images.
The headline was updated to better reflect that only the first installment will focus on Clinton scandals.
