HBO Plans John McCain Doco

Production has reportedly begun on an HBO documentary about U.S. Senator and former U.S. Presidential nominee John McCain.

The six-term senior Arizona senator agreed to participate in the film shortly after being diagnosed with brain cancer, providing unprecedented access to his daily life. There are also interviews with family, friends, colleagues and leading political figures.

This sweeping account combines John McCain’s own voice, culled from original interviews, commentary, and speeches, with archival newsreel and television footage and previously unseen home movies and photographs.

Peter Kunhardt will produce and direct the project alongside George Kunhardt and Teddy Kunhardt. All three are Emmy winners.
