Dueling Docs Look at Presidential Candidates

CNN announced it would be airing a pair of hour-long documentaries about Sens. John McCain and Barack Obama. The documentaries debut August 20 at 8pmET (McCain) and 9pmET (Obama).

Correspondent John King fronts the McCain documentary, and Suzanne Malveaux Obama’s.

The documentaries premiere five days before CNN kicks off its coverage of the Democratic convention, and they will replay various times leading up to Election Day.

“There is so much you don’t know about these two extraordinary men, and we aim to fill in the gaps,” said CNN/U.S. president Jon Klein in the release.
