HBO, Scorsese To Develop Clinton Documentary

HBO and veteran film director Martin Scorsese will develop a documentary spotlighting President Bill Clinton, the network announced Monday.

The film, which will be produced and directed by Scorsese, will explore the 42nd U.S. President’s perspectives on history, politics, culture and the world, said network executives.

“President Clinton is one of the most compelling figures of our time, whose world view and perspective, combined with his uncommon intelligence, make him a singular voice on the world stage,” said HBO CEO Richard Plepler and HBO programming president Richard Lombardo in a statement. “This documentary, under [Scorsese’s] gifted direction, creates a unique opportunity for the President to reflect on myriad issues that have consumed his attention and passion throughout both his Presidency and post-Presidency.”
