“I told her, ‘Nobody should tell your story but you, and it’s kind of gross if they do,’” said Murphy. “ ‘If you want to produce it with me, I would love that; but you should be the producer, and you should make all the money.'”

The fourth season of Murphy’s hit show was to be based on Jeffrey Toobin’s A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President.

And audience members craving to see a fictionalized small screen adaptation of the scandal may have to hold out longer than anticipated.
