Knox was wrongfully convicted of her roommate's murder while living in Italy in 2007.

According to the Daily Mail, Knox and Lewinsky have formed a "close" bond while working on the TV series.

While living in Puglia, Italy, the then 20-year-old Knox returned to the apartment she shared with Kercher and discovered blood in the bathroom and her roommate's bedroom door locked. After contacting the police, Kercher's bedroom door was kicked in, and her body was discovered. She had been fatally stabbed.

During the disputed investigation process, Knox implicated herself and her employer in Kercher's murder. In 2009, Knox and her former employer pleaded not guilty to murder, sexual assault, simulating a burglar,y and other charges.

In December 2009, Knox was wrongly convicted and sentenced to 26 years behind bars. She won her appeal in 2011 and was released before being acquitted in 2015.

While the pairing may seem unusual to some, the two maligned women have a lot in common. Lewinsky was infamously at the center of Bill Clinton's sex scandal while she was a White House intern.

Though then-Lewinsky was only 22 years old when she began the affair with the married 49-year-old in 1995. She was smeared in the press for years afterward while Clinton's role was seemingly forgotten.

Lewinsky previously hinted at the project and explained why she joined forces with Knox during an appearance on the Today show.

"I wish it were announced already, but I’m executive producing a series on another young woman who found her life ripped apart on the world stage, but she somehow managed to survive," Lewinsky said. "I think it’s going to be really powerful and hopefully they will announce it soon."

The Hulu project is not the first drama Lewinsky has taken on. Back in 2019, she kicked off her producer career with the series Impeachment, which covered her affair with the president.
