Clinton Scorsese Documentary Announced By HBO

HBO announced on Monday that Martin Scorsese will be producing and directing a documentary about former President Bill Clinton for them.

“The docu is being made with the full cooperation of Clinton,” the pay cable network stated.

In addition to Scorsese, Steve Bing will also be producing. He is a large-scale monetary contributor to the William J. Clinton Foundation, and has furthermore donated money to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for her presidential run.

The William J. Clinton Foundation was founded by Clinton with intent to “strengthen the capacity of people throughout the world to meet the challenges of global interdependence.” It focuses on four critical areas: racial ethnic and religious reconciliation, leadership development and citizen service, health security, and economic empowerment.

The docu will explore the perspectives of the country’s 42nd POTUS on history, politics, culture and the world, the network said.

“President Clinton is one of the most compelling figures of our time,” HBO CEO Richard Plepler and programming President Michael Lombardo said Monday in a joint statement.

Scorsese called Clinton “a towering figure who remains a major voice in world issues” and “continues to shape the political dialogue both here and around the world.”
