Infamous intern Monica Lewinsky has agreed to participate in an HBO documentary that will take a closer look at her affair with then-President Clinton and its effect on the country.
Lewinsky recently told the New York Times that the passage of time has provided her with a new perspective. The documentary will allow the former White House intern to reveal more of her side of the scandal than she exposed in her biography, “Monica’s Story.”
“The last couple of years have been such a time of intense growth and perspective for me. I want to do something that really reflects the way I feel now,” she said.
The scandal captured the attention of the nation and left an indelible mark on the Clinton presidency. Sheila Nevins, head of HBO’s documentary unit, believes that there are still questions that need to be answered, especially “why this very minor event became one of such enormous magnitude.”
The documentary, which is expected to air next January, will be produced by the team that created the HBO documentary “Juror No. 5: 58 Days of Duty on the O.J. Simpson Civil Trial.” Lewinsky and HBO declined to discuss how much she would be paid for her work on the project.
