HBO Orders ’41,’ a Documentary Memoir Profiling President George H.W. Bush

HBO has ordered a documentary that will feature former President George H.W. Bush recalling his time leading up to and in the Oval Office. Called “41,” the doc will premiere on the pay cable network in June.

Bush never wrote a memoir, though he did release a book of letters and diary excerpts.

Reuters has more on the doc:

It was filmed over a 17-month period at Bush’s Kennebunkport, Maine summer home and his presidential library in Texas, and will be aired two days after he marks his 88th birthday on June 12.

HBO said Bush agreed to take part in the documentary after meeting writer and director Jeffrey Roth and seeing his documentary film “The Wonder of It All” about the Apollo moon walkers. The film is executive produced by long-time family friend Jerry Weintraub.
