A Martin Scorsese-directed documentary on former President Bill Clinton’s life is coming to HBO.
But viewers probably shouldn’t expect anything too juicy — the premium cable network announced Monday the 66-year-old ex-commander-in-chief will give his “full cooperation” for the film.
The small screen flick will explore Clinton’s “perspectives on history, politics, culture and the world,” according to a news release.
The 42nd president indicated he’s excited to work with the Academy Award-winning “The Departed” director, saying in a statement, “I am pleased that legendary director Martin Scorsese and HBO have agreed to do this film. I look forward to sharing my perspective on my years as President, and my work in the years since, with HBO’s audience.”
HBO seems to be on a presidential kick. Earlier this year it aired the documentary “41,” about the life of Clinton’s predecessor in the White House, former President George H.W. Bush. That film, similar to the Clinton biography, was produced by a Bush family friend and had the former president’s cooperation.
HBO has not yet announced an air date for the Clinton documentary.
